The oil pan or oil pan gasket leaks slowly under the engine. I was told that it is a known issue with most Veracruz that they should fix for free. This issue has been there since I bought the vehicle & I'm waiting for them to fix this recall issue too.

The contact owns a 2011 Hyundai Veracruz. While driving at approximately 50 mph, all of the warning indicators on the instrument panel illuminated. The accelerator pedal was depressed, but the vehicle failed to accelerate above 30 mph. The failure recurred twice. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that oil was leaking on the alternator and it needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired under NHTSA campaign number: 14V415000 (engine and engine cooling); however, the remedy failed to prevent the failure. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 51,000.

Vehicle driven on highway at 60 mph and engine check sign came on, then car sign as antitheft sign appeared than tpc sign and navigation direction sign in mirror all kept blinking on and off. Vehicle started to slow down but speedometer stuck to 60 mph. Vehicle dropped speed gradually and I was afraid that other vehicles coming behind at full speed may hit my vehicle if they are not aware of my vehicle slowing down. I had to pulled the vehicle in shoulder lane and started my emergency blinkers on. Blinkers were going on and off and warning bell were also going on and off. Damaged the battery of my vehicle. Contact Hyundai customer care center and they informed me that the recall campaign 121 does not have remedy to this recall. This is very unsafe and cause an accident, crash, fire or serious injury or fatality, since it affecting to the speed of the vehicle and speedometer dose not responds to the current speed of vehicle. Damages the battery and blow off the horn of the vehicle. Case # [xxx]. dealer wants consumer to pay for the damaged battery and damaged horn.

Veracruz 6-cyl

  • 27,499 miles
Following email sent to Hyundai dear sir: I have a 2011 vercruz with 27499 miles that I have loved until January 19, 2014. While traveling at 50mph, the car suffered catastrophic loss of all electrical power: No power straining, no power brakes, no engine power. It could not be restarted. By researching the net, I have learned that this problem has been described many times before. An oil gasket leaks that drips oil on the alternator producing loss of all electrical power and a dead engine. My dealer, L------N Hyundai, did the repair work, only charging me for the depleted battery. Nor were tow charges reimbursed. They concluded that oil had leaked from the gasket, destroying the alternator. I regard this has a serious safety issue. If the problem recurs for me, or for others; serious injury or loss of life could result. I request that you issue a national recall and permanent fix for this problem. I will be contacting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. ------ ---------
