The contact owns a 2010 Hyundai Sonata. The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start. The vehicle was taken to a private repair shop for diagnostic testing, where it was determined that the starter failed. The vehicle was repaired by replacing the starter. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 68,000. The current mileage was 70,500.

2010 Hyundai Sonata. 9 months old, has been in the service center 5 different times. 2 times for sensor replacement. The last 3 times, driving at a normal accelerate pace. Check engine light comes on, esc light comes on and vehicle loses power. On one of those occasions, vehicle lost power while going through intersection, and almost was rear ended. Service department has replaced many parts from throttle position assembly to thermostat to electrical wiring harness. In my opinion, vehicle is a lemon.
