2017 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 062017

Sonata Hybrid Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,420 miles


Same Problem: Hybrid Failure Shut Off Engine. However, this occurred in Harrisburg, PA while going over a long bridge over the Potomac River. The engine went into LIMP Mode which propels vehicle a 20 MPH. No place to pull over. Semi Trucks coming from behind.... very, very scary.

Contacted BlueLink and got appointment with Massey Hyundai in Hagerstown, MD No problem could be found by this dealer.

problem #1

Feb 072017

Sonata ES Sport

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,300 miles

Engine died, all lights turned off while driving on a street. Was able to pull over, put the car in park and restart. Brought the car to the dealer who said they couldn't diagnose the problem or duplicate the event. Called Hyundai, waiting for call back. Thank God that I wasn't driving on the highway, otherwise could have caused a major crash!
