Notes: The 2010 Veracruz has a very small trend of complaints about the valve gaskets leaking oil onto the alternator, which is similar to prior model years and was covered in a 2014 recall.

Other than that, there are no major problems reported for the Veracruz on our site or to the NHTSA. Seems like it's a very good, reliable vehicle.

problem #2

On 8/1/2013, while driving at 35-40 mph, the car lost acceleration (engine was running but pressing gas pedal had no effect on engine rpms, brakes and steering functioned correctly), and "ESC" (not "ESC off") dash light started flashing. Stopped and turned car off and back on and the car accelerated fine. Took car into tempe Hyundai, but they could find "no error codes in computer". about 2 weeks later, problem occurred again. Returned to tempe Hyundai, and they kept car over night for a technician to drive home and back, but problem did not occur for them. On Saturday, 8/17/2013, the problem became constant, and I found that (while it was happening) I could turn ESC off and the problem immediately stopped, until I turned ESC back on. I drove to tempe Hyundai, and their technician went for a drive with me and saw the problem occurring. Tempe Hyundai replaced what they called the steering control sensor (said it was reading 20 degrees when set at 0 degrees) and my wife picked up the car on Wednesday, 8/21/2013. On Friday evening, 8/23/2013, the problem occurred again, and the car was returned to tempe Hyundai on Saturday, 8/24/2013. Again, they were unable to find any error codes, but kept the car to allow their "expert" technician to check it out. The internet is rife with reports of many makes/models of cars manifesting this extremely dangerous problem, and it's scary to think what may happen if this problem occurs while in rush hour traffic and/or on a busy freeway with speeding semi trucks all around. The cause(s) of this problem needs to be determined and the fix provided to all who are at risk before someone gets killed or maimed!

My car lost acceleration and ESC light turned on while driving at about 40 mile/hr. The car was pulled over and restarted. The ESC light turned off and the acceleration went back to normal. The car was driven to a Hyundai dealer located in corona, ca. No error codes were found, the problem could not be duplicated and nothing was done about the issue.
