Carfax is showing an open recall for this vehicle that was posted on 11/8/16. The recall number is 946. When I pull the VIN number on your web site, it states 0 recalls reported. I know the recall has not been completed yet because I work at a Hyundai dealer and I just purchased this vehicle from auction. Which am I suppose to go by" carfax or your web site. Which is showing the correct information" please help.

Whenever I put on the indicator at night the headlight turns off, I have to tap the switch for the light to come on. Took it to the dealer and was told that the multi function switch is bad, my car is only 2 years old, how can the switch be bad when I'm the only driver, I think its a factory problem.this is dangerous whenever I'm driving at nights

My vehicle has for the last year showed signs of the recall and we have gotten a Hyundai to fix it with a ring but the next day the vehicle showed the same things. The symbol in the middle that displays drive when it disappears the car struggles to accelerate and drive, and when I come to a complete stop with it disappereared the car takes alot of gas to accelerate. Which I believe is from the transmission and the car not being on the same page.. which is terrible as it can cost a lost of life due to the car suddenly stopping and it is a extreme hazard to myself and my family. And I wish that Hyundai would do something or replace the vehicle.

Approximately 4 pm on August 24, 2015 driving my 2014 Sonata limited with 11450 miles onto the local freeway on ramp, car stalled and total loss of steering occurred. I had just enough time to get the vehicle to side and avoid possible collision from behind. Had absolutely no warning, and was driving normal for the clear road driving. Weather was good, clear and sunny, upper 80F. Traffic was starting to build for rush hour and had this occurred 5 minutes later major collision would have occurred due to traffic congestion on freeway during that time. At the time of occurrence it felt as if I had a flat tire with the front wheels wanting to turn in direction of weaker tire side. Complete and total loss of power both electrical and engine were immediate. I placed shifter in neutral as quickly as possible maintaining some momentum to get car to side of road while trying to restart it. Vehicle started but I did not have any steering control at all. Hyundai bluelink roadside assistant then called and summoned a tow truck to take it to local dealer for warranty service and repair. Service technician has stated that the steering column needs to be replaced. No indication as to what caused the fault to occur and to whether the cause of the fault has been determined.

The car dealership just changed a part on the car in hopes to fix the issues I've had the last 4-5 times the car wouldn't start. I have reported this as well two weeks ago. This particular event, when I was driving my car shut down completely, all lights on dash lit up and would not restart. A burnt smell filled the cab and I thought it may be my battery. Hooked up cables, let it charge, tried turning it over and it did not.

I was disgusted to see the currently playing Hyundai Sonata commercial in which an adult man is illegally and dangerously driving through a parking lot with a child in the back seat. As the car stops it is apparent that the behavior is a game which is then repeated. I am not sure if it is the purpose of the Hyundai organization to promote child endangerment or they are just sick.. can you do anything to stop this commercial, specifically, and prevent similar commercials which might demonstrate harmful action against children in the future?
