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.

  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz. While driving approximately 75 mph, all the warning lights illuminated and the engine stalled. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. It was discovered that oil was leaking from the front cylinder valve cover gasket onto the alternator, which caused the alternator to fail. As a result, the alternator, the front valve cover gasket, and the battery needed to be replaced. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign number: 14V415000 (electrical system) and stated that the remedy was not available. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 70,000.

I started up the vehicle and had no interior lights. For about 2 months, the lights would not come on upon starting up if the lights were left in the auto mode or initially turning the lights on. Then the lights started flickering during driving and now the lights go out while driving the entire dash.
