2010 Hyundai Genesis Owner Comments

problem #3

I was driving my vehicle turning on to a main street from a highway. Without warning the car entered limp mode. I did not have any engine response and the car would not do more than about 10 miles an hour. I pulled off the road and restarted the car. I was able to get the car to the dealership. Dealership says car has codes for faulty throttle position sensor and it need to be replaced. I have seen other people with a similar issue.

The contact owns a 2010 Hyundai Genesis. While driving approximately 45 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle failed to restart and was towed to the dealer. The mechanic was unable to locate the failure. The failure recurred three days later. The vehicle was towed back to the dealer for a second time. The vehicle was in the process of being diagnosed. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 75,000.

Genesis 8-cyl

Took my car in for servicing and asked them to check my air conditioning unit. No cool air from the system. The technician said a piece of glass and wire resembling part of a tire retread had somehow passed through the grill and damaged the condenser. Thus, freon leaked out over time resulting in lack of cool air. The service clerk said he had heard that this had occurred in the past with other Hyundai Genesis. Interesting how there is no damage to the front end of the car or the grill. Does not sound feasible that a piece of glass (2 inches by 1 inch with quarter inch thickness) and wire (7 inches) could sneak through grill and hit with velocity to damage a condenser with no damage to the grill. Are grill slats too wide or is there a lack of under carriage protection? the dealership kept the glass and wire and suggested that I contact my insurance company as this estimated $1000 item was not covered by the Hyundai 5 year, 60 thousand mile warranty.
