problem #4

When the car is stopped at a light or in traffic with the foot on the break when you release your foot off the break the car lurches forward - must be something with the new dual clutch 7-speed transmission. Please Hyundai fix this before someone gets hurt or killed

Car sometimes accelerates by itself even when off the gas and on the brakes. Lunges in stop and go traffic. Passing gear sometimes revs up to 6500rpm's but stays in the current speed. Sometimes car stays at a certain RPM even if not on the gas and wont slow down. Bad lag and terrible dead spots in acceleration. I feel like transmission is not communicating well with control module and gas pedal position sensor is way off the mark. Car has put me in life threatening situations but Hyundai service says they cant reproduce the problem but only drove it 7 miles. I bought car brand new and just turned 5800 miles but has been back for this problem 4 times now.

This brand new car breaks down on my teenager. It has done so on me as well. Had it into the dealer and auto shops and they cnt find anything wrong. This car lea ves my kid stranded in the middle of nowhere. Not safe. Goes into limp mode and stalls.
