I had the same problem.. I was passing someone and Boom a huge pile of smoke I thought I blew up the wifes car :( and I freaked out and pulled over. I took it to the dealer and they said there's a recall on the grounding block under the hood.. They brought it in and tightened the fuse block under the hood and I've never had a problem since..Report it
I had a problem with my 2011 Hyundai Elantra blowing smoke. It was only about 18 months old. The smoke though was from the raging fire in the engine bay. I had fire brigade come and put out the fire. Investigations indicated a fault most likely with the starter motor. I had reported an issue to Hyundai with the starter motor not long before. But they just did a reset on it and said all was good. It was quite a surprise to wake up in the morning and see the car on fire and trying to start by itself. Unfortunately Hyundai did not want to see the car or assist in any way. Something I still do not understand. Hope this helps anyone with starter issues on their Hyundai.Report it
