2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


I had my 2012 Sonata GLS for 4 days when I suddenly could not move the gearshift. I was parked at a restaurant, went to leave, and could not put the car into gear. It started up ok, but all the dashboard lights came on and stayed on indicating I had problems that I didn't have, like the emergency brake was on when it wasn't. Long story short, I had to be towed back to the dealer. It's Sunday, so I have to wait for an answer, but I am terribly disappointed. Reliability is the most important feature for me when it comes to owning a car. Hyundai needs to exchange cars and give me another one. The car has 204 miles on it!!!

A follow up as to how the situation was handled and what other Hyundai buyers might expect would be nice.
