Top 10 Hyundai repair issues

All cars, Hyundai included, have issues at one point or another. In fact, it’s often not a matter of ‘if’ a vehicle experiences a problem, but when. That’s where we come in!

  1. Engine stalling – this issue is found in the Hyundai Santa Fe 7 models years produced from 2001 to 2017. The crankshaft position sensor can fail, resulting in the engine stalling or failing to start. Replacement of the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
  2. Poor Shift Quality of Automatic Transmission – this issue affects the Hyundai Santa Fe 6 model years affected include 2001 to 2016. Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid, ensure that the transmission fluid level is correct. As well, make sure that the computer that controls the transmission has the most up to date adaptive programming information.
  3. Rough Idle – this is a problem that may exist in the Hyundai Santa Fe 15 model, with the years affected being from 2001 to 2016. On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may result in an intermittent rough and or unstable engine that idles.
  4. Parking lights don’t turn off – the Hyundai Sonata model years affected by this issue include 1994, 1997 and those produced from 2000 to 2015. The parking lights may or may not turn off intermittently or all of the time. This is a common problem with the cabin fuse box. A total replacement of the assembly is needed to fix the problem.
  5. Check Engine Light & Transmission doesn’t shift properly – this usually happens in the Hyundai Sonata with the model years affected being 1999 to 2015. If the automatic transmission shifts incorrectly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission most likely have failed. The sensors are simple and relatively inexpensive to replace.
  6. Cars Catching on Fire – Short-Circuiting ABS modules have been setting Hyundai cars on fire. The electrical shorts are a result of water leaking from the outside and brake fluid leaking on the inside. Hyundai has issued numerous recalls to address the problem
  7. Theta II Engine Causing Knocking, Seizing, and Oil Sludge Buildup. There are major lawsuits related to this issue.
  8. The 1.8L Nu engine has loud engine noises – Hyundai settled a class-action lawsuit and agreed to lengthen the powertrain warranty for certain Elantras sold in colder weather states.
  9. Seat Belt and Airbag Failure (caused by overstressed airbag control units) – millions of Hyundai cars built after 2009 have defective airbag control units built by the company ZF-TRW. An ACU takes information from crash sensors and decides when to deploy the airbags and seat belt pre tensioners. But the crash sensor data is being interrupted by electrical stress in these ACUs, resulting in deployment failures in crashes. As such, Hyundai has issued a recall for this.
  10. Tucson transmission won’t accelerate (the transmissions use control modules to constantly monitor data). Presumably, something is erring in those modules and there’s some sort of electronic shut-down of the transmission. In September 2016, Hyundai issued a recall for 41,000 2016 Tucson SUVs.

HYUNDAI REPAIRS & COSTS: Repairs can add up, especially if the recommended maintenance has been neglected. We help you cut costs by keeping up on your Hyundai maintenance schedules and prioritizing repairs that need immediate attention versus ones that can wait. By sourcing the best parts for the money and by providing the best technicians to work on your car, we save you money! That’s what makes our pricing VERY competitive.

HYUNDAI PARTS: We generally use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts ONLY if they are cost-efficient. Otherwise, we’ll source an equally durable aftermarket part. We’ll help you save money this way!
