2007 Hyundai Veracruz Owner Comments

problem #9

May 092016


  • 110,000 miles


ESC light came on, gear shift will not come out of park, drive or reverse unless gearshift release button is pushed. ESC light being on results in shifter not moving, no brake lights, no reverse light at any time. This recall was made in 2009 was repaired and the same issue has returned but Hyundai will not fix it because the recall is closed. It is campaign 092 stop lamp replacement. This problem affects brakes and brake lights so while driving other drivers have no idea when you are stopping or slowing down. This is extremely dangerous. The fact that it has been recalled once fixed and is doing the same thing again should mean another recall and different fix for the vehicles. Hyundai was notified yet refuses to fix it because it has already been fixed once. We were told to have it fixed and we could possibly receive a refund. This issue is continuous and happens while parked, on the highway, and city streets.

ABS, AWD and ESC lights coming on and staying on at 90,000 miles. The issue is a faulty rear wheel speed sensor. Dealer wants $1,200 to replace the sensor! they claim the sensor cannot be replaced without replacing the rear axle. This is a terrible safety issue to have over an inexpensive sensor. It is ridiculous that the axle must be replaced to replace the sensor.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Veracruz. While the vehicle was parked, the shifter failed to move from the park position. The dealer stated that the stop lamp switch was defective. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred five times. The dealer repaired the vehicle each time. The contact was informed of NHTSA campaign number: 09V122000 (service brakes). The manufacturer was notified of the failures, but refused to assist because the recall remedy was already performed once. The failure mileage was 10,000.

The vehicle got harder and harder to put in and out of gear until it would not come out of park until you slammed on the brakes a few times and turned the engine on and off. Then when you got to your destination you couldn't get the car back in park without the same routine. Brake light switch was out. But the dash lights started blinking on and off. Took it to the Hyundai dealership and it turned out front and rear valve covers gaskets had leaked and dumped oil onto the alternator causing it to burn up. Very expensive repairs and possibly dangerous situation to be in.

Veracruz 6-cyl

  • 16,343 miles
At 16343 mileage, electronic stability control (ESC) warning light illuminated and vehicle was difficult to shift out of park. Dealer replaced brake light assembly under warranty. At 40,100 mileage, ESC warning light again illuminated. Dealer again replaced the brake light assembly switch under recall campaign 092. At 87,719 mileage, the ESC warning light again illuminated and vehicle was difficult to shift out of park. Dealer again replaced the brake light assembly switch at my cost, even though the bad switch had been replaced due to a recall. At 129,000 mileage, the ESC warning light is once again illuminated and the vehicle is difficult to shift from park. This means that the brake light switch is again bad. The vehicle is on it's 4th brake light switch. Since this is part of a part defect recall, Hyundai should warrant the replacement part for lifetime free replacement, but they do not. The replacement recall part is obviously no better than the part it replaces. The brake light switch is not a routine wear part, and at this degree of failure, an severe design flaw is indicated. This is a critical safety item that affects electronic stability control, shifting, and brake light illumination.

Car's rear passenger side caliper grabbed the brakes, started to wear rotor. We replaced caliper hose, which we thought fixed the problem. Feb 10 2014, started noticing odor. Got worse on 2/16, brought car into brake place on a Sunday. Replaced the rotors, manually tested calipers, which seemed fine. 2/22, smelled same brake metal smell; brought car back in, they saw rotor was again worn blue from heat, and they replaced caliper and rotor again. Same smell on 2/25, after driving car only ~30 miles. Caliper apparently again malfunctioning.

  • 98,000 miles
My ESC off light keeps coming on the dashboard causing the car to not shift out of park. There was a recall of the stop lamp switch which was performed in 2009. I read in a newspaper article that there is an update to this recall which will be performed starting in June 2013. Dealer refused to perform the recall work at this time and Hyundai usa states that the recall (campaign 110) is not valid for 2007 vehicles, only 2008-2009. I am very concerned, this is a serious safety issue and Hyundai refuses to repair my vehicle.
