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.

2010 Hyundai Veracruz Owner Comments

As of today 3 out of 4 interior door handles on my 2010 Hyundai Veracruz have broken. The remaining door is intermittent due to a defective door lock. From an online search this is obviously a very common problem, spanning several years and models, obviously due to poor design or materials. It is also not one that I care to pay to repair and then have to pay again in the future. Inability to open a door from the inside of the vehicle creates a serious safety problem. In the event of an accident I will need to be able to hopefully unlock the door, open the window and reach the outside door handle to get out. Of course this assumes that power is not interrupted as a result of accident. Without electrical we would be trapped in the vehicle. Additionally, as a man of color, I don't cherish the thought of having to explain to a cop that I cannot exit the vehicle without first reaching outside. This is not the first problem Iżve had with this car but this is one that Hyundai should definitely recall and repair.
