1998 Hyundai Sonata GLS 3.1 V6 from North America
Decent affordable car
This car has become a nightmare; it has suddenly developed a annoying problem. This started about 2 months ago.
First the car just wouldn't start unless it was boosted. The starter was replaced, new battery charging system check, and was running perfect.
Then after the garage, it worked for a while, then it just stalled one day on the highway while driving. It was wired; it wasn't just the engine, but all electrical as well.
Then I got it checked again; all seems fine, starts without a boost all the time.
Now it will just stall randomly, and sometimes start up after, but not all the time. I don't trust driving in this car, no codes pop up on OBD2 and the fuel system is good?
The car itself before the problem ran great, good acceleration, comfortable. I really did like this car, minus the gas price to keep it going; I would get a bit more 400 km on a tank of gas.
Guess I got a lemon!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
