#3 - Starter problem of the 2009 Hyundai Sonata
The car is a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. Around Feb of this year, my car battery died and I got it replaced with a new one. Soon after I started experiencing an additional grinding noise that would occur sometimes after start up. Upon investigation, I was told it was the starter by Hyundai. I took my car to my mechanic however and was told that it was the ignition switch selector, that it had gone bad and that it needed to be replaced. I hope this solves the problem. This starter problem happened on Feb. 2, 2013.

#4 - Starter problem of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata
I bought a 2011 Hyundai Sonata in March of 2010 brand new. I have had problems with the tires had to be replaced after year two, and when they were being replaced they said that the air valve on the tire was corroded when I went to Hyundai to get the part replaced they said that it wasn't corroded it was broke off because there wan't a cap on it and it got wet. So, they said that I had to buy a new one, and they would send it up under the warranty and I would be refunded that did not happen. After that my push start would not start when I pushed it. I would have to push it about three times and then it would finally start. I took it to Hyundai, and had it replaced not under warranty any more is what they told me. So I paid the 287. 00 for it. After I got it home and went into grab something came back out and it did it again. Took it back to gateway Hyundai in richmond to have it fixed and they said it needed a nother starter. I didn't have to pay for the part but I was going to have to pay for the labor. Nope didn't get it fixed. I would just start it three times instead. Then I had to replace the brakes last year 2012 because it wore only on one side, and now the engine blew a rod. They claimed that it was because of not having enough oil in it, but then told me I had a quart to much of oil. Now really does that make any sense? this is absolutely ridiculous. Then they told me I could trade it in for a new Hyundai but would have to put $5000. 00 down on it which is convienantly the amount they quoted me to have my engine fixed because they said it wasn't under warranty because I hadn't kept all my receipts for oil changes for the past three years. It was Mon., Feb. 25, 2013 when this starter issue happened.
