2013 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #4

Aug 182017

Accent Sedan 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles


The problem has been going on for weeks. Some days the car will drive normal but on some days it will stall.

You try to start in the morning on your way to work, it might have driven fine the day before then suddenly it will not start until you jump the battery. I went to the dealership and there was nothing wrong with my battery. Today, I was coming from work and decided to stop and get some gas, after getting the gas, the car refused to start. All lights were on, on the dash board but it will not start. Please tell me what to do because the dealership do not know what the problem is. The whole thing is embarrassing because whenever it happens I will be I standing on the street looking for somebody to help me jump my car. It's not fun.

Accent GLS 1.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

I've had my 2013 Hyundai Accent since 12/2015, on 5/18/17, I parked my car, and five minutes later when I went to start it up it would not start. This occurred again a week later on 5/26/17. I am afraid to drive it on the Interstate, for fear that it can shut down while driving. This is a serious problem, and safety issue that has to be addressed by the NTSB. I hope this problem is taken care of before it causes an accident and the loss of a life.

For the 3rd time in a year my car won't start. The first time I determined it was a bit of ice build up in the inside of one of the passenger side doors which is triggering a sensor that the door is ajar. Chipped away the ice and it started. Yesterday it happened with the back hatch. I cleared what ice build up there was and it started. Today it won't start and it appears the back door is the problem again. No new ice but it's deathly cold here and the latch may not be closing closely enough to stop the sensor. ANyone else have this problem? Is it covered by warranty? I bought my car used just under a year ago and don't have the service passport or a manual.

This is the 3rd or 4th time my 2013 Hyundai accent would not start! After the 3rd time i took it back to the dealor and the mechanic said I need a new battery. So I brought a battery which isnt covered under the warranty of course ($192.00) but 2 weeks later its happening again. This time a jump wont even help it! I dont know what the issue is but it seems like several other people on here has the same problem,,and quite frankly its getting on my dam nerves and costing me money, what should I do?
