Top 8 Hyundai Issues
Auto manufacturers will sometimes release faulty cars, trucks and other vehicles to the public. Hyundai is no exception. Owners of Hyundai vehicles should look out for the following signs:
- ◦ Oil Leaks
- ◦ Brake Failure
- ◦ Catastrophic Engine Failure
- ◦ Lack of Acceleration
- ◦ Engine Light Turns On
- ◦ Complete Power Lost
- ◦ Engine Stalls While Driving
- ◦ Engine Catches Fire
If these symptoms or any other vehicle problems repeatedly appear, your Hyundai may be a lemon. Learn more about what the lemon law can do for you. If you want to seek legal remedies from your auto manufacturer, consult an attorney to discuss your lemon law rights.
How Does The Lemon Law Protect My Hyundai?
Your faulty vehicle may qualify as a “lemon” under the California Lemon Law if it has repeated problems that won’t disappear after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
The California Lemon Law considers vehicle problems to be defects if they negatively impact the vehicles’ use, safety or value. It does not set a number that is considered “reasonable.” If you’d like to know whether you have had a reasonable number of repair attempts, consult with our lemon law attorneys about your case.
Under the California Lemon Law, consumers are eligible for three possible remedies: cash compensation, a replacement vehicle, or a full refund for their vehicle, minus an amount called the “mileage offset.” Monetary compensation usually includes attorneys’ fees and costs.
The statute of limitations is four years from when you first discover a potential defect in your vehicle. If you think your Hyundai is a lemon, don’t hesitate. Hyundai, like other auto manufacturers, has a track record of misconduct against consumers. You just might be one of them.
Hyundai, Consumer Rights and Lemon Law
Hyundai was hit with multidistrict litigation that alleged some Hyundai models spontaneously burst into flames. These models include 2011–2019 Sonata, 2013–2019 Santa Fe Sport, and 2014–2015 and 2018–2019 Tucson vehicles. The Theta II 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter gasoline direct injection engines installed in these vehicles were allegedly defective and therefore linked to the non-crash car fires. Hyundai had to set aside close to $760 million for payments as part of a settlement agreement.
Hyundai faced multiple federal suits for its involvement in the ZF TRW airbag crisis. According to the suits, the ZF TRW airbag control units would suffer electrical overstress and shut down. As a result, airbags failed to deploy during collisions, further putting the car’s occupants in danger.
Along with Hyundai as a division, Hyundai Motor Company also controls Kia. Read the other division’s page to learn more about Hyundai Motor Company’s misconduct via its other brands.
