Default IT'* OFFICIAL - HYUNDAI CAN KISS MY A$$

Here is the story.

About 2 months ago I was in an accident with my 1997 GMC. My brother let me borrow his 2001 Accent while I had no vehicle. The first day I drove it I noticed the motor ticking/knocking. The oil was fine and oil changes had been done. I asked my brother and he said it had been doing it for a while now. After listening closer I felt that it may be bottom end noise and not simply the lifters. I dropped the car off at the dealer to get fixed.

A week later the car was ready. They had dumped some mystery oil into it hoping to quiet the noise at the request of the Hyundai DPSM (District Parts and Service Rep). Next morning I started the car and proceeded to drive it only to find that it now sounded like the motor would maybe make it ten miles before self destructing. Needless to say the noise was now 10x worse. I again dropped it off at the dealer to get fixed. Again I explained that the noise is not a simple lifter problem but is coming from the bottom end of the motor. The dealer heard the noise with me.

A week later the car was ready to be picked up. They replaced the lifters at the request of the Hyundai DPSM. I did not even have to leave the parking lot when I heard the same noise still. I left the car there for them to fix again.

The car has sat at the dealer ever since. Today the service manager told my brother they can't fix the car because the DPSM will not allow the bottom end to be replaced. The DPSM said the POS engine in the car is normal for a Hyundai Accent so Hyundai does not feel they need to replace it. It is normal for the motor to rap like that since it is expected to according to Hyundai.

As of today the car still needs a bottom end replaced. The service manager and the service tech at the dealer agree but The Hyundai DPSM refuses to repair the car. The DPSM said my brother could complain to Hyundai Customer Assistance if he wanted to.

I will make sure everyone I know NEVER BUYS A HYUNDAI and I will also make sure that everyone I know that has one sells it as soon as they have a chance. I knew Hyundai was getting cheap on warranty repairs but this is just absolute BULL$#!T. Now my brother is stuck with an Accent he wants to sell but can't since the motor raps and Hyundai won't fix it.

DO NOT BUY HYUNDAI. The low purchase price may be appealing but you pay for it in the end, believe me

Lemon Laws, Better Business Bureau, lawyers, etc.

Do it and get it solved for you, that'* why he bought the car new, so it would be warrantied.

The worst part is he was just about to sell the car. He got a Ford Crown Vic with 130,000 that runs great. To bad the Hyundai could not make it past 40,000 miles.

well, i guess that shuts me up.

that is so stupid. can you drop it of at a hyundai dealer in the next town over or something? i could go on and on, but i will spare you guys. i never planned on going foreign anyway, much less hyundai, or kia for that matter. i like the old stuff, back when they made them to last, not save your butt in a crash as a result of your runaway car [/quote]

Well the DPSM oversees all the stores in the area. He will deny the repair in every store. THe dealer is not the issue. It is the DPSM who works for Hyundai Corporate who won't allow that expensive repair on the vehicle.

Here is some more Hyundai stuff

I spent 7yrs as a Hyundai parts manager before this year. Hear is what I have seen:

99-02 Sonata, everyone has rear wheel bearings that fail and eventually allow the rear tires to fall right off.

99-02 Sonata, every four cylinder timing belt can not make it past 40,000-60,000 miles without breaking

99-05 Sonata, check engine lights that will drive you nuts until you finally trade the car.

01-04 Elantra, crankshafts that walk so bad they hit the flywheel/torque converter.

04-05 Elantra, passenger airbag sensor that won't recognize someone sitting in the seat

01-05 Santa Fe, transfer case either leaks explodes or all the above before 60,000 miles. The problem is so bad Hyundai does not cover the 4wd system as part of the powertrain warranty.

01-05 Santa Fe, driveline shakes that can not be found sometimes

01-05 Santa Fe, check engine lights that again drive you nuts until you sell the vehicle

00-04 Accent, motor problems ranging from lifters to bottom ends

00-05 Accent, auto transmissions that fail every 30,000 miles

03-05 Tiburon, 6spd that can't handle the piddly 170ft/lbs of torque

Should I keep going or is that enough?
