Notes: The 2008 Veracruz has a minor trend of complaints where the valve cover leaks oil onto the alternator, causing alternator failure. The problem starts with the battery warning light & typically all the other warning lights coming on in quick succession. Luckily, that problem was covered in a 2014 recall.

Overall, It's a solid reliable vehicle with no major problems reported.

2008 Hyundai Veracruz Owner Comments

problem #1

I have a Hyundai Veracruz 2008. In the past 2 months I am now faced with a second incident where my windshield wipers stopped working completely while driving on a highway in heavy rain. The dealer has explained they put in a fail safe mechanism to back out the nut attached to the wiper arms in order to protect the wiper motor so it does not burn out as it is covered by the warranty. The 1st time it happened they said it was due to the heavy snows. We have not had any snow since they last fixed it and again we were faced with a very unsafe situation as our wipers stopped during a period of rain and this time we were on a major highway with 60 miles to drive ahead of us. The dealer wants to do nothing more than replace the nut but says they can not weld it to stay in place or the motor could end up burning out. Our Hyundai dealer is carousel Hyundai in West chester pa. Please investigate this before someone is less fortunate than myself and ends up in a car accident when this happens to them.
