2003 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 092006

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


: the contact stated when the brake pedal was depressed at any speed there was extended braking distance. A significant amount of brake fluid was added to the master cylinder which did not correct the problem. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. However, the problem could not be duplicated, and no repairs have been made. The manufacturer was contacted. There is NHTSA recall # 03V257000 concerning the service brakes: Hydraulic: Hose, pipes and fittings. The vehicle has the same problems as indicated in the recall. It is not included in the recall due to the VIN. Updated 5/24/2006 - the vehicle has gone into repair on numerous times and has been reported many of the same brake issues each time, most of which have exacerbated to the point to make the vehicle completely unsafe to operate. Hyundai performed a diagnostic on the vehicle and found it to be more than completely inoperable. Updated 06/01/ 2006. Updated 07/17/2006. Updated

Contacted Hyundai usa (file # 815991) and local dealership (hemet, ca) about service brake recall (03V49600). Both advised that they were unaware of it and therefore, couldn't perform work.
