When you go to stop at a stop.sihn or in general it fails to do so. It locks up an I slide an almost hit people multiple times. Today I was backing out of a parking lot an when I went to turn my steering wheel straight it locked up an failed to let me counter steer it. Causing me to go over a curb an almost blow my tire out. Leaving my tire with a big bubble on the side of my tire. Eventually going to lead to a blow out.

On Sunday, April 15,2018, I was preparing to make a right turn on merrimac avenue in Norfolk va, on my way to church, when I heard a loud screeching noise and loss of steering. A car without an occupant was sitting two car spaces from the corner, my car had struck this car. I got out of my car and saw my front right tire laying flat on the ground and my right fender was smashed. The police and aaa were called. When the aaa driver came he stated that my axle was bent. My air bag did not implod.the police came and no summons was issued. I was given a copy ot the police report that stated that the event was a non-reportable incident >the car was towed to a collision center said that the axle was bent.they ordered another axle and the one sent by the manufacture was damaged!. I feel that this car may be, though repaired may be unsafe( the suspension was damaged also I have a copy of the police report and the copy of the repair wok=rk done which took over 20 days. Am I safe in this car" I do not know how to upload, so I am going to send this report in the mail to you. I had sent a report earlier, but my computer crashed and have not been to use it to send another form, . should I contact Hyundai" I do not know what to do! I am sending this report again because I lost all of my emails

On Sunday, April 15, 2018, I was preparing ti make a right turn on merrimac ave in Norfolk va, on my way to church, , when I heard a loud screeching noise and loss of steering. A car with no occupant was sitting to car spaces from the corner and my car struck the car. I got out of my car and saw my right front wheel laying on the ground and my right front fender was smashed. I called the police and aaa. When triple aaa arrived the driver said that my axle was bent. My air back did not implod. The police came and so summons was given, just a repotr that it was a non-reportable accident. My car has been in a collision shop since that day. The shop called and said there would be a delay because the axle the manufacture sent was damaged!! the shop had to order another axle. I went on line to determine if this model has had other report of axle and suspension defects and there was one report that was exactly the same as mine. Is it possible that this model may be a defected ? I did not take any pictures I had lost my cell phone

2015 Hyundai Elantra. 2 years old. Driver's side tire (and passenger's side, but not as much) starts thumping when driven over 60 mph, or will inconsistently start thumping randomly at different speeds. Feels very unsafe as it feels like I am driving on a flat tire. Each time that this has happened, I had to pull over on the highway to check if I actually had a flat tire, but did not. First time I noticed this was a few months ago. I dismissed the problem because I thought the issue was just a bumpy highway, as the problem disappeared after exiting. From there on, the car drove smoothly until I reached my destination. I did not have that problem again until a few months later. The thumping started happening randomly on roads that I drove smooth on before, so I knew it was not a bad road issue. This car needs a recall as it is already causing me life threatening problems only at 2 years old. I am also having issues with brakes and steering, but they appear minor to the tire problem.

July 18, 2015 returning from a 350 mile trip to miami from St. Petersburg, fla. On I-75N, experienced a harrowing driver side rear tire explosion in alligator alley about 11:30am. Hyundai Elantra has no spare tire on a leased car. Tires are hankook omnipro H-426. Multiple complaints filed about these particular tires after researching. Mileage is less than 10K miles and car is only 2 yrs. Old and was leased brand new. Have 'Hyundai roadside assistance that only tows to nearest dealership', per csr after call to report, requiring a trip back 30 miles. After explaining ordeal, tire explosion, rear bumper torn off, back light damage from tire being completely ripped apart and major backside damage from said incident, davie Florida Hyundai dealership did change and replace tire that I had to purchase. They assured us that car was safe to drive. Receipt showed multi-point inspection provided as well as wheel balance and alignment. Back on road at approx. 3:30pm, I-75N almost to same spot, (alligator alley) second tire explodes on driver side front making car inoperable; waited for 2nd tow(8pm) all the way home, arrived about 12 midnight. I am currently terrified of driving with other two tires on passenger side. Waiting to hear from Hyundai customer care about resolution,

I have a set of 4 primewell valera touring II tires on my card, two of which failed due to the prior recall issue on the inside lower sidewalk. My tires are not listed as part of the recall, however the issue is identical. I purchased two new tires today as the others failed while driving to work on I95 in duval county, fl. I will purchase two additional tires this weekend as I do not want the tires on the car to fail and cause an accident, or worse. What is giti tire and/or Continental tire going to do about this?

The tire on the back driver side exploded on the highway with a 70mph speed limit. A week and half after that tire was replaced the front tire in the front side of the driver had its tread separating from the casing. This could have had a blowout and potentially been harming.
