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.

2015 Hyundai Veloster Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 052015


  • 2,900 miles


The contact owns a 2015 Hyundai Veloster. When the vehicle was placed in reverse, it went into neutral and did not immediately go back into drive. The contact stated that the vehicle changed gears by itself without warning. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer who was unable to duplicate the failure. The dealer updated the computer. The failure recurred three days later and the vehicle was taken back to the dealer who then changed the gear shift actuator. The failure recurred within 24 hours and the vehicle was once again taken to the dealer. The dealer replaced the transmission. The failure recurred and the gear system was completely dislocated, unable to shift into reverse or drive. The vehicle was towed back to the dealer and provided the contact with a loaner vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and continued to check on the contact. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 2,900.

I had my 2015 Veloster at the dealer 5 times for the auto trans sounding like the axles were bad when going into reverse. Trans was flaring up between 1-2 & 3-4 but was told it was normal.that was 5200 miles. At 14314 this bad cv joint noise started & again was told it was 20859 trans was replaced per the Hyundai field engineer. Both problems still there. Never even got it home before noise started. Back in at 25878 with both problems as of yesterday & now they are saying its a charastic of the vehicle. This vehicle travels 240 miles per day as U can see by the milage. If these axles or cv joints let go my wifes life could be in danger at 70 mph. Ddealer insists no problem & I have notified Hyundai of America & the BBB auto line with no call back as of yet. Tnx for your help in advance
