The suspension and brakes will lock up and when it is wet I have slid into banks of dirt and hit my other vehicle and it does not matter how fast I go. I have had my brakes checked and have had to get a wheel alignment every month for the last 12 months due to suspension.

We own a Hyundai 2001 XG300 which has severe corrosion and rust on the sub frame. Since November, we had different work performed on the car. All the mechanic have said that the corrosion and rust is severe and is effecting the suspension and other mountings to the frame. The carbon emission evaporator needed to be replaced and the dealership to get it to mount had to use plastic zip ties due to the amount of rusts and holes in the frame. The dealership mechanics have stated that the car is unsafe to drive due to the rear tire is not fully attached and need welding work to be performed. This is due to the severe corrosion. The controller arm of the rear right passenger side needs to be replaced, both rear upper control arm were replaced. The regional district manager for the northeast says this is normal corrosion for a 10 year old car.

The contact owns a 2001 Hyundai XG300. The contact stated that the vehicle would pull to the right when she drove various speeds including approximately 35 mph. She noticed the failure in October 2003. The tires were checked and aligned; however, the failure continued to occur. A local mechanic stated that the front subframe was corroded. She later inquired about recall 09V124000, suspension and was told that her vehicle was not included. She also stated that in August 2007 she noticed that the SRS light was illuminated. The vehicle was inspected and it was cited that the SRS light was on because of a faulty wire which was connected to the front seat and could not be adjusted. The vehicle would have to be taken apart to confirm that the wire was faulty. She also was informed that recall 02V105000, air bags, side/window was related to her failure but did not include her VIN. In July 2009, she noticed that the fuel tank would not take gasoline. She felt as if it was because of the fuel tank assembly valve but it was not confirmed by an inspector. The vehicle rejected the fuel and caused spillage. She called the manufacturer and was advised that they could not assist her. The current mileage was 78,225. The failure mileage was approximately 24,000. Updated 02/17/10. The transmission was replaced, due to vehicle not going into drive at times. Updated 02/19/10

Traveling at 45 to 55 mph, engine stalled and check engine light came on. It led to lost of power and acceleration on the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times, because the engine light continued to illuminate. The consumer stated the air bag light illuminated, there was a cracking sound under the vehicle, there was a wind noise and a vibration coming from the vehicle. The injectors, gaskets, ignition sensor and throttle body were replaced.
