2012 Elantra Won't Start
By 20grand4crap on


2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Brand new car. Intermittently won't start. Starts only maybe 30% of the time. Six trips to the dealership, all to no avail. they scratch their heads and send me back home with the hunk of junk. Every week, i'm having to get it towed in because it won't start. update: July 2016: weeks after I wrote the original review, the dealership fixed the problem and it never occurred again. Car now 3.5 yrs old and this was the only issue I've had. I'm very pleased with this car. I just hate that it took so long for them to figure out what was wrong.
