2007 Hyundai Veracruz Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 072008


  • 19,538 miles


The engine just quit while I was driving on the freeway during morning rush-hour. There was suddenly no response when accelerator was depressed. I managed to glide across 2 freeway lanes to exit freeway while car decelerated. This occurred on Oct 7, 2008. I don't recall if at the off ramp red light, the car completely stopped and I restarted it or was barely idling. I do recall the car barely driving (it was trembling/rough idling) the few feet from the red light to the first gas station. I parked it and it would not start up. Hyundai towed it to their dealership. Mechanic diagnosed the problem was: "the throttle body has failed and needs to be replaced." I haven't experienced this again--and had not experienced it before this incident. While I managed to avoid crashing into other vehicles going 50-70 mph when I glided across the lanes, this was a terrifying experience. (I am submitting this complaint 1-1/2 years after the mechanical failure only because of the serious problems Toyota customers have experienced w/sudden acceleration, etc. I just want to ensure that NHTSA was informed by Hyundai back in 2008 of my potentially deadly engine failure on a freeway during rush-hour traffic. I think they should have had a duty to report this serious failure to you, and if they did, great. In case they didn't, now you know.)
