Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I bought Genesis at March 24, 2015, and I am not owner right now because I sold that car. When I bought car, there were noise at engine at new car. After checking the car, Hyundai engineer said " short block problem". it is exactly same problem of sonata (theta 2 engine). I think Genesis engine(rhamda 3.8) also have problem. I will attach related paper. Thank you.

The car engine will spontaneously stop while the car is in motion. This causes me to lose all power steering, brakes stability control etc. This has happened on city street while the car was in motion. The car was moving forward in a relatively straight line. It has been "fixed" but not fixed. It is at the dealer for the 2nd "fix". the 1st "fix"was 10/12/15. The 2nd "fix" began 10/27/15 & is still underway.

Vehicle stalled as I was driving about 25 mph. All systems failed. It could not be started again and had to be towed. There was no previous indication of any mechanical/electrical problem.

problem #2

Genesis

  • 10,786 miles
After accelerating from a stop light behind another vehicle, there was a loud cracking noise heard from behind the dash board and the car suddenly and violently accelerated without warning with a loud "boom" in the back as though someone had hit me from behind, but no one had hit me. I had to brake hard to avoid hitting the car in from of me. When the car violently accelerated the back of the car dipped down (and the front up). I immediately called the dealer and reported this and the car is now in the repair shop. There are no error codes in the gds system for this incident and they are unable to reproduce. This was a very frightening experience and my trust level is now 0/100.

The contact owns a 2015 Hyundai Genesis. The contact stated that rodent's chewed on the wires inside the engine compartment, which caused the air conditioning unit to malfunction. The air conditioner unit needed to be repaired. The vehicle was repaired by the dealer. The manufacturer was informed of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 1,500.
