A D V E R T I S E M E N T S
In 2017, I bought a new Santa Fe Sport SUV. In 2022 and 2023, I began dealing with the motor burning excessive oil. My vehicle had about 90K miles on it at the time. I was put through 4 trips of taking my SUV to the Dealership which is over 100 miles away from home for a 1,000 mile oil testing(s) and then 1 extra trip for an oil combustion performed on the motor before finally leaving the vehicle with the Dealership on 2.25.23. This was mandatory procedures required by Hyundai Corporate before they would replace the motor due to excessive oil consumption and engine had a noted manufacturing defect on my model 2017 Santa Fe Sport. This should have been a RECALL situation from the get go!
I am a first time buyer of a Hyundai and because of what I have been through dealing with the SUV's motor's problems, this will be my last time to buy a Hyundai.
Hyundai Corporate should NEVER put a customer through numerous service testings before finally providing a new motor when there was a manufacturing defect in the motor to begin with. Plus, I did not receive a brand new motor - I received a refurbushed/remanufactured one vs. a brand new motor. I guess Corporate did not want to pay for a NEW motor. So, I had purchased a brand new $40k vehicle with a defective motor that was replaced with a refurbished/remanufactured motor instead of a new motor! I am not a happy customer and will never buy from Hyundai again. If you are looking to purchase a new vehicle - I do not recommend buying Hyundai's based on how they handle serious issues with their vehicles.
I am advised that Hyundai Corporate has a lawsuit against them regarding the motor problems. I feel Corporate should do a RECALL on ALL the vehicles affected by this and provide the customer with a NEW replacement motor not a refurbished/remanufactured one. Note to all new customers - don't buy a Hyundai when you can buy other brands. Signed / Unsatisfied Customer-Hyundai Owner
