My best friend owns this car, and got a pin hole in her power steering hose. I'm trying to get the piece I need for her, but I don't know how to get the hose off. Can you help? tigarspot@gmail.com

I am having the same issue with the acceleration of my 2002 Hyundai XG350. I was on the interstate the other day, and almost was rear ended by a truck because the car would not go. The RPM just kept increasing. Did you find a fix for this?

Had this same problem with my 2002 Hyundai XG350L. The dealer finally found that there was a crack in the gas tank cap. Had something to do with the gas fume recovery system.

2005 Hyundai XG350(L)... around 50,000 miles. A couple of years ago my dad's car started locking the doors as soon as he got out and shut the door. The dealership service people tell him "it's supposed to do that". If that's the case, why did it wait 5 years to start? That appears to be the only issue. Any ideas?

I have 2002 Hyundai XG350L with 138K miles. I just put brand new tires on it. It vibrates so bad I took it back to the mechanic. He has looked at everything. He has switched tires etc etc. It still vibrates really bad at 60, then when you decelerate, it shakes, and when you accelerate to 70, it vibrates like the tire is going to fall off, and is really bad at 80. He is stumped; he has had it for two weeks. Any ideas?

I had the power steering hose replaced because it was blown apart. Parts, labor, fluid flush and replacement cost me 695 dollars. My car is a 2004 Hyundai XG350 with 96000 miles.

What makes a Hyundai 2002 XG350L keep draining the battery or alternator? Email me please at landrewfrancis@yahoo.com

They told me the same thing. The mechanics at my Hyundai dealer seem to be clueless. When I take my car to the car wash, I have to standby to give them my spare key to open door.

The dealer always try to charge me for my lifetime oil change, and manage to find something wrong with my car and warn me if I do not do what they suggest, it could void my lifetime oil changes.

I love my XGL350 - 2004 Hyundai. I bought it new and have 60,000 miles on it. It runs great, but now the check engine light has come on and they say two of the three coils are defective. I will get a second opinion.

Dealer price for front brakes with rotors for 2005 XG350, $594.00. Local garage, $254.00. Some repairs might need a Certified Hyundai Technician, but not brakes. No justification for that kind of overpriced service.

I changed my XG 350 Hyundai key from remote to a manual key, and since then it eventually went off anytime without notice, or to even turn ON at times. I don't know, maybe it is as a result of the key I changed or is just a coincidence. It cannot be driven long distances. Can anyone help me in solving the problem?

Hi all,

I have a 2005 Hyundai XG350 and it developed a rattle at the left rear wheel well. This I know because I had my son sit in the back, lower the top of the seat and stick his head in the trunk and he heard the noise. I took it to Tires Plus and their diagnosis was the upper bushing, but of course they said might as well replace both struts complete for $475; the dealer wants $575.

I figure if it's only the bushing, which I just bought the complete set for $10 at Auto Zone, why replace the whole assembly?

I called around and there are 2 repair shops that will put in the bushings for $100, is that a fair amount?

I have a 2002 Hyundai. The car was fine. I didn't drive it for about a week after heavy rains, and I experienced the car stalling. It turned on, but hit the gas and it idled and stalled. It's been raining a lot. Flooding. Does this have to do with the car stalling?

I have 2002 XG350i or l.

I am having wiring problems, because if I accidentally bump my door, the trunk will open and the gas door, and my miles left to empty display is very dim. Also my rear defrost light doesn't come on when I press the button, nor does my rear defrost work.

I want to buy a 2003 Hyundai XG350 75k miles, super clean off of CL, BUT here's the skinny:

The car belonged to an old man who passed. Now his wife is getting rid of it because it hesitates when you give it too much gas. They said they've replaced the gas vacuum and O2 sensor because the machine read "sensor", but that didn't fix it. So they think the symptoms reflect the TPS sensor. They're asking $1500.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is it worth the fix?

I know someone up here once said it was a crack in the gas tank cap. Any other solutions??

30 days ago (Hyundai XG 350 2005, 136k miles) all 6 sensors were replaced, and the ignition sensor was replaced a year ago. After the vehicle stopped suddenly, no warnings, immediately turned on, no problem. I drove 50 miles and it did the same thing. Took the vehicle to my mechanic, replaced ignition sensor. Mechanic reassured me "that was the problem"...!!!

February 2018, returned to the shop. This time said, sensors were purchased at NAPA auto parts. One could be defective (sensors are replaced once again).

3-19-2018, the car was picked up from the shop. 2 miles later, the car did the same thing. Engine starts missing, motor shakes like a leaf. He said "not to bring the car back"; whether he was joking or not car, nevertheless "I" kept the car for 3 days, made notes, so 3-26-2018 the car goes back again. I need answers, $976.00 deserves "an honest answer".
