All of the following has occurred to me; Delayed or sluggish acceleration Gear slips Shaking, shuddering, or juddering Harsh or rough shifts Immobility or stalling Thumping and other objectional sounds My car has just over 25000 miles. I have only had it serviced at the dealership. I have complained about this issue to only get a software reset which. Doesn-??t solve the issue. The last time I left it at the dealership for this issue, they had it for weeks, was told that the issue was replicated, only got a software reset. My problem persist and only seems to be getting worse.

Twice with this 2022 Hyundai Elantra a rabbit has chewed partially through a wire to the transmission. Some Soy based coating that Hyundai uses is delicious to rabbits, then they partially chew through the wire, resulting in power and transmission issues during operation, including revving engine, failure to change gears, and unable to reverse. These wires need better protection as being chewed on causes a safety issue while driving before a check engine light comes on.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid Limited with 25000 was fine when I drove home from work. An hour or two later, got in vehicle which then shuddered and died. Manufacturer deflected blame to avoid performing repair under warranty but needed a new alternator. Car went into limp mode and just would not start once engine cylinders misfired (all cylinders misfired!). This issue after they refused to repair or tow, deemed it safe but almost wrecked due to it dying when driving off the lot assured there was no issue.

My car had faulty camshaft position sensors which would cause the engine to randomly stall and shut off while driving.

After driving the vehicle for about 5 miles I stopped to make a left turn and when I let off the brake and pressed the gas pedal the car crept forward but wouldn't speed up and the gas engine wasn't starting or even cranking. After about 20 to 30 seconds to gas engine started and the car drove fine for about 15 miles then I went to slow down and the car speed up on it own and the adaptive cruise control was off. Then it drove fine for a few more miles then I stopped at a red light and then began to make a right turn and the car did the same as before. It crept forward and the gas engine wasn't starting or even cranking. Then after 20 to 30 seconds the gas engine started and I was able to speed up some but then the engine would rev up but the car wouldn't speed up. It seemed like the transmission wasn't engaging. The car was parked for about 8 hours and then drove to the dealership without any issues. The service department at the local Hyundai dealership looked at the vehicle and test drove it without any issues

The contact owns a 2022 Hyundai Elantra. The contact stated that while driving at 45 MPH, she accidentally touched the gear shifter and shifted the vehicle into neutral(N). The contact was unaware that the vehicle had shifted into neutral(N) as the vehicle failed to accelerate upon depression of the accelerator pedal. After experiencing the failure, she tested the gear shifter and discovered that she was able to shift gears functions without depressing the brake pedal. The contact called a dealer and made an appointment to have the vehicle diagnosed. The manufacturer had yet to be notified of the failure. The vehicle had yet to be repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 15,000.
