2010 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 60,000 miles


The ignition cables and spark plugs are faulty and had to be replaced just after 60,000 miles. I was driving and suddenly my check engine light started flashing, my car was shaking, and not shifting past first gear. Had it towed to a mechanic. They said the ignition cables and spark plugs were faulty. They had seen this on Hyundai's before.

The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 64,426.

I believe that there is a problem with the cars main computer. Apparently my car ran out of oil and the indicator light merely flickered at me a few times and then went out. Had to have vehicle towed to shop when it stalled, no codes found in the computer. Shop changed oil. Engine was reported as noisy upon delivery but noise gone after oil change. Shop decided the issue was lack of oil. Two days later check engine light comes on and tachometer would not function. Dealership misrepresented issue on paperwork as stalled engine, I was simply afraid to drive it with the tach not functioning and the check engine light on given issue 2 days prior. Issue with vehicle crank sensor found. No mention of codes showing or not on the dealership paperwork. I was told no codes were found. Today, oil indicator light flickered again. Would not stay on. Upon my inspection there was no oil. I refilled oil, and it began to leak. Tried local mechanic and they advised do not drive, but could not take vehicle. Called roadside assistance, no word yet on newest issue. The only indicators that seem to work are for the tire pressure monitoring system. Client who is mechanic claims the main system and TPMS are completely separate. Poor design of engine information. Only meters are speed and tachometer. Customer must rely on computer to show indicators if there is an issue. This cars' oil indicator is malfunctioning. Wonder what other indicators are malfunctioning.
