On 09/04/07 I bought a used 2002 Hyundai Sonata and on 09/05/07 the car lost 1st and 4th gear it seemed as if the transmission were going out , but when I started reviewing other consumer related issues I noticed over 900 consumers had the same problems with their Hyundai's , but the cause ended up being the output speed sensor. Which in some cases took consumers up to 6 months to locate one. Unfortunately I financed the car as is with no warranty.

While driving, thr vehicle jerked to a stop. It was discovered that speed sensor was defective. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the manufacture will not accept responsibility. The brakes had worn away, one brake pad was missing, there was a loud grinding sound in the rear of the vehicle and the vehicle refused to shift when turning corners. The service dealer found it nessasary to replace the rear oxygen sensor and found that the output speed sensor was faulty.

Failure Date: 05/08/2002

The contact owns a 2000 Hyundai Sonata. While driving approximately 45 mph, the engine began to rev excessively high and the vehicle lunged forward unexpectedly. When the accelerator pedal was depressed, the vehicle hesitated and vibrated. In addition, the automatic transmission shifted violently into gear. There was no power response during acceleration, which resulted in the engine stalling intermittently. The warning indicator also illuminated on the instrument panel intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection, but they were unable to duplicate the failures. The mass damper was replaced. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on six separate occasions for identical failures. The repairs consisted of a complete tune up, replacement of the "output" speed sensor, and the battery was replaced twice; however, the failures continued. The extended warranty on the vehicle expired at 60,000 miles. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 13,559 and current mileage was 82,505.
