I have now had to replace engine coils 6 times. They usually fail one at a time and the first 5 were under warranty. There are so many issues with Hyundai Accent 2011 owners and engines coils. This should be a recall. This is despicable Hyundai.

Since 2012 one year after the purchase coils began burning out car kept stalling on the highway, continued on 9/18/12, 9/24/12. 2/18/13. 2/17/13. 5/17/13. 1/21/14,1/29/14, 4/3/14, 4/8/14, 12/31/14 twice the latter required replacement of all three belts and ignition coils please note that all happened while driving on the highway as well as local streets which I had to be pushed by police off the street on two occasions. At present the car is in the Hyundai dealers' shop for the same reasons as well as I was told after coils were again replace car would not start and that it is probable the crank shaft sensor now I am waiting to see when I can pick up this car which is in my opinion a safety hazard for me in addition the cost association with the repairs will be detrimental to me if I had no insurance is a retired teacher and still need transportation to get around because of arithitis and other ailments. I am truty afraid now of driving this car because it put me danger of getting hit from behind when it continues to stall on city streets and highways.

I have had to replace the coil packs on my 2011 Hyundai Accent 3 times so far and yesterday they went out again. My check engine light came on, car started running rough and would not accelerate properly. I went to the auto repair center and they advised that the coils were bad again and the vehicle is having a misfire. This will now be the 4th time I will have to replace all of the coil packs. I spoke with Hyundai and they stated that there is not a recall for this problem and were no help on this issue.

I bought my sedan almost 2 yrs ago and I have replaced all four coils randomly since then. Yesterday my engine light came on again as I was stuck in traffic and coil 2 was misfiring again. Now that I am out of warranty I am having to argue with Hyundai corporation on this matter that should be labeled a recall. Not to mention I just recently sold our 2011 Hyundai Accent hatchback that only had 30000 miles on it, after having it's first coil malfunction.

2011 Hyundai Accent has a software problem with the coils/spark plugs. I have had all of them replaced, yet the car still senses a misfire in its computer. My mechanic looked it up and found out there was a recall for this year and make, but when I called Hyundai they denied a recall ever being issued. This will be the last Hyundai I ever purchase.
