My 2001 Hyundai Sonata was bought new. It has given me nothing but problems from the time I drove it off the lot and as soon as I hit the 60,000 mile mark (the bumper-to-bumper warranty ended at this point), the car constantly has something wrong with it. I have spent thousands of dollars in repairs. The airbags were fixed by the dealer because there was a problem. The brakes had a loud squeak and dealer replaced (under warranty at that time). The side front window motors have been fixed twice and now the passenger side window motor is broken and I had to put tape on it so that it will stay up. The timing belt went out after the warranty. Some kind of coil broke and needed replacement. The engine light is always turning on. I stopped taking it to the dealer after the car broke down, had it towed, dealer in laurel, MD claimed to have fixed it, charged me $768, picked up car, same problem, engine light still on and took it back to dealer. Dealer said there was yet another problem. They said they fixed it and they charged me over $500. Still the same problem. I took the car to a mechanic and was charged $45 for the repair. There have been several other problems that I have had to pay for repairs. I just spent $435 on another repair. Now, after each repair, I just wait for the engine light to turn on again for the next expensive repair and yet I'm still making car payments. Absolute worst car I have ever had.

The passenger window would not roll up, it got stuck in the middle of a rain storm. The passenger door will not open from the inside and the windshield wipers stopped working as well and replacing the fuse did not solve the problem.

3 of 4 window mechanisms have failed in the down position do not allow the windows to be rolled up. First the driver side window mechanism failed in April 2004 and was repaired. The back passenger window failed in July and front passenger windows failed in October. It appears the window mechanism cording is causing the malfunction. The passenger windows have not been repaired and are secured temporarily in the up position. The old parts still in tact.

March 25, 2002 my driver side window would not close. I had purchased an extended service contract when I purchased this vehicle new in 1998. I took it to my local dealer, burlington auto mart, in burlington, NJ, to be repaired. I checked my contract and thought this part, 83403-34011 regulator, would be covered. They said it wasn't. I contacted the Hyundai protection plan administrators at Hyundai motor America in fountain valley, CA and received a letter from denise lowrie, admin. Assurance prod. Dept. , that said it wasn't covered. I was still in the process of trying to get this problem straightened out when on July 19th my driver side front window regulator also broke. I spoke to jason taylor, another administrator in the assurance prod. Dept. , who said he gets several calls a week questioning whether the window regulators on the 1997 & 1998 Sonatas are covered under the plan. He said that the plan was changed in 1999 and the regulator is now considered part of the window motor and so it is covered on the 1999 and newer Sonatas. My extended contract states that the power window motors and gears are covered. The window regulators are not mentioned under exclusions. I don't know if you can look into this matter, but I really feel that the regulator problems should be examined, as it sounds like there are way too many regulators failing in the 1997 & 1998 Sonatas.

The back window was left down when we parked. My son, 6 years old, went to put it up. Somehow he stuck his head in through the opening and accidentally continued to put up the electric window. The window caught him in the mouth, with his head on one side of the window and his chin on the other. He was stuck. I turned off the key. I then turned the key back on and pushed the button to lower the window. I'm not sure if he was pushing the wrong button, but it went up more. We then managed to lower the window. He was bleeding on the sides of his mouth. Nothing stopped the window from going up even with his head in there. We were lucky nothing more serious happened. If he had been smaller child or if his neck had been in there, this might have had a tragic ending. Thank you, lisa haider.
