Thank heavens I have another car to drive!
Bad hesitation from a standstill or while accelerating at speed.
Service Engine light is on almost all of the time, with EGR malfunction code.
Had to be towed to dealership three times due to stalling (and would not restart).
This is, hands down, the worst new car I have ever purchased. Some of my complaints revolve around poor dealer service, but I also believe that this car was cursed from the moment design had begun.
Each time the car has been returned for service due to an engine service light, I've been told that the gas cap was not tight. I even purchased an OBDII code reader and had to prove all of my complaints to them.
The first time it was in for service (at 6 months of ownership), the dealership did $2000 worth of damage to the driver's side door, but did, however fix the damage after 1 month.
From the first day we bought it, the car has handled like a drunken water buffalo, has horribly long stopping distances, and was hesitating so badly that it almost caused 2 accidents. To the credit of Hyundai, their website gave me enough information to diagnose the hesitation and provide a patchwork fix (reflash the computer memory from the driver's seat)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
