Problems with no help from dealer or the manufacturer
By emlod on
2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
The car pulls to the left. The rear brakes went at18,000 miles. They blamed me for not having the sliders lubricated but I too the cAR FOR SERVICE TO THE DEALER SINCE i BOUGHT. wHY DID'NT THEY TELL ME. THEY DIDN'T. A CALL TO HYUNDAI MOTORS RESOLVED NOTHING.
I DON'T ENJOY THE CAR.
When you trade it in you will get nothing compared to Honda and Toyota.
Some dealers are selling
for $3,500 above sticker price. There is no reason for this. Don't pay it. Go on the internet and find a price there, but I would not recommend this car. Honda, Toyota and Nissan mask much better cars and have better service and trade in.
Why by a sonata?
The turbo gives
a decent boost/
the pull to the left.
Fix the stalling problem.
Honor the warranty. It is basically useless.
Dealer service is very poor.
There seems to be a solution to the steering "wandering" issues. I found this topic on a forum, as I'm about to purchase a 2012 Sonata SE. It appears to be solved by having the dealer change the EPS software from the default. Check over this thread for some great input from others who had theirs changed. http://www.hyundai-forums.com/222-yf-2011-sonata-i45/163171-2013-sonata-steering-problem-solved.html
