I hate this car and wish I had never got it
At less than 300 miles I took it in for my first oil change, Car was returned with oil spots all over floor mat.
In less than 2 months, the tire blew. Not covered under warranty.
Air conditioning failed at 7900 miles. was not covered under warranty. Dealership wanted to charge $900.00. Was repaired by garage for $500.00.
No less than 5 recall repairs in the first 2 years, no rental car compensation.
The clutch went out at 15677 miles. This was less than a month after repair work to my shift bezel. The consumer advocacy was to refer it to an independent mediator. After 2 requests, it was not referred. Repairs not covered under warranty, and I had to send a certified letter to the corporate headquarters in Korea just to get a response to my 5+ page complaint letter.
Hyundai's customer service is very poor.
When I returned the customer comment card telling them I was unsatisfied with my visit to the dealership, the card was given to the tech, who called me at home and asked why I had given a poor rating. Telling me that it affected him. Hyundai did not seem at all shocked when I brought this to their attention.
I am in fear everyday that something else will go wrong with my car, and I will have to pay another $1000.00.
I will NEVER buy another Hyundai.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
