2005 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

Letter to nstb and MA attorney general, re Hyundai underbody corrosion on 8/6/2015 I received a Hyundai "service campaign notification" on my 2005 Tucson for "under body corrosion." I did have the recall service completed. (┐arrests┐ it, they claim, but not removes it.) by that date I had already experienced two failures caused by the corrosion, both of which I believe had high potential for serious, even fatal accidents. The repairs cost almost $2,000, but they refused to reimburse. I am more concerned with the safety issues. Luckily, the fuel tank falling onto the drive shaft did not rupture and explode. The right front control arm failure caused loss of steering control and an abrupt stop into the right curb. Had it been the left front, , I would have been steered into oncoming traffic. Had it been at turnpike speed I suspect a likely rollover. The left front arm was also near failure. I sent two emails to Hyundai, and made a number of calls, in part requesting repair reimbursement, but more importantly to tell them my concern the car was unsafe to drive. I asked them to buy it back at a fair price. No response. Twice, they promised to contact me in 2 to 5 days, they didn┐T, ever.. when I later called them and told them I had sold the car (at a loss in value) they just brushed me off. (to paraphrase them: ┐it's no longer an issue since you now don┐T own it┐). I can provide documents (repair invoices, with findings, and emails if you wish). I am requesting you take action to investigate, and as needed, take action to issue stronger sanctions against Hyundai, they should be forced to recall all the affected cars.

I was slowing to a stop and could feel that the car was going to die and it did. I took it to the dealer and they did a fuel induction service and it seemed to fix the problem.the dealer should have not charged me for a car so new, but they put under the service "maintenance" which I didn't find out till a couple years later when it happened again and I called the dealership. I have since had the same incident happen 5 times and after reading several people have had the same thing with no explanation I decided to put my incidents in so that more people would know it isn't just a single happening of the same thing. After this happens I take the car on the freeway and floor it meaning to blow out what I think may be stuck in the fuel line"??" it always works for a while. This thing doesn't occur for any particular reason and I have the car well maintained. I now have over 120,000 miles and the last time it did this was about 6 months ago. Thank goodness nothing bad has happened because of it.
