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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2010 Veracruz has a very small trend of complaints about the valve gaskets leaking oil onto the alternator, which is similar to prior model years and was covered in a 2014 recall.

Other than that, there are no major problems reported for the Veracruz on our site or to the NHTSA. Seems like it's a very good, reliable vehicle.

Within the last week the interior handles have broken on the drivers side doors. The drivers side passenger door will only open from the outside making it unsafe to allow anyone to ride there until it is repaired. The driver door will open but gets stuck at times and does not want to shut requiring you to manually hold the door closed. This is unsafe.

As of today 3 out of 4 interior door handles on my 2010 Hyundai Veracruz have broken. The remaining door is intermittent due to a defective door lock. From an online search this is obviously a very common problem, spanning several years and models, obviously due to poor design or materials. It is also not one that I care to pay to repair and then have to pay again in the future. Inability to open a door from the inside of the vehicle creates a serious safety problem. In the event of an accident I will need to be able to hopefully unlock the door, open the window and reach the outside door handle to get out. Of course this assumes that power is not interrupted as a result of accident. Without electrical we would be trapped in the vehicle. Additionally, as a man of color, I don't cherish the thought of having to explain to a cop that I cannot exit the vehicle without first reaching outside. This is not the first problem Iżve had with this car but this is one that Hyundai should definitely recall and repair.

Since about may or June of 2013, 3 out of 4 interior door handles have broken on my 2010 Hyundai Veracruz. This is not just coincidence. The 2 front interior door handles and the passenger side rear interior door handle have broken. I am finally reporting this because the rear passenger door cannot open from the inside or the outside which is a serious safety hazard. I researched to see if this was a common issue with the car and it appears that several other owners have posted complaints regarding the same issue. In fact, my husband also owns a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz and his passenger side interior door handle has also cracked making it difficult to open the door from the inside. I sent an email to Hyundai customer service which is posted on their national oem website. Their response was essentially that it is my problem to fix. I do know that other year and make/model Hyundai vehicles have a specific recall on these door handles. I am wondering why the 2010 Veracruz does not. Thank you for your time.

The brakes failed to properly stop my 2010 Hyundai Veracruz while driving on a primary arterial road. There was no indication of any brake failure or warning light prior to this braking failure. Brakes were working fine in stop and go traffic just prior to the failure. The brakes were applied for stopped traffic and the vehicle failed to stop. This resulted in a front to rear end collision at an approximate speed between 5 and 10 mph. There were no skid marks and during braking the brake pedal did not indicate that the ABS was active (no pulsating of the pedal). The air bag deployed from the drivers steering wheel without injury to the driver of the Hyundai. There were no other passengers in the Hyundai nor in the impacted vehicle. The driver of the impacted vehicle did not seek immediate medical attention but did complain of back and neck pain. The front end of the Hyundai has extensive damage, including frame damage, radiator damage, and engine damage. The impacted vehicle (a late 1960's truck) has rear bumper and frame damage. After discussions with both the investigating officer and the body shop owner, I contacted the local Hyundai dealership and tried to speak with the service manager. I have left two (2) voicemail messages to date (both the day of the accident) and have not received a return phone call. This dealership had just completed the brake switch recall work on this vehicle on 12/24/13, including a complete inspection of the vehicle. Nothing other than normal tire wear was reported on the dealership's inspection report. I am very concerned that there is a braking problem with this vehicle. When the dealership returns my call, I will ask Hyundai for a full investigation of the accident, a review of the on-board computer, and any other diagnostics that can be retrieved from the vehicle. I also intend to contact Hyundai direct with my concerns.
