I have a 2012 Sonata GLS. Mileage a 70600. Automatic. I drive a lot due to my job. One morning, the car would not start. The starter worked fine; it sounded like no fuel was getting into the engine. First took it to my mechanic. Scan showed "low fuel pressure in common fuel rail".
He recommended taking it to dealer for warranty work. First Hyundai dealer's service dept was so busy, they said it would be 45 minutes before they can even sign me in. So took it to a second dealer. Diagnosis cost $50, and the problem is bad fuel pump, according to them. No, it is not covered under warranty. Cost $860 or so. Bad fuel pump at 70K? I take care not to drive with fuel tank level below 1/2 mark. I am not sure what the 10 yr/100K miles warranty is all about.
It sounds like a lot of hot air to me.
I purchased my first Sonata July 4, 2012 it was the new 2013 within the month my seats would heat up without pressing the switches. You could not turn them off and after repeated service calls they could not fix the problem. They tried to imply that it was all in my head, no one else had a problem with hearted seats they told me over and over, well I had the problem. In February I took it in again they could not fix the problem. I told them I wanted them to switch out the car this is where they took advantage of my complaints of the car. I lost everything I put down on the first car, then the loan for the new car they placed me in was a " Smart Loan" it is the worst of worst of loans. Then within the month the seats started heating up. I took it in again and again they could not fix it yet at one time the service adviser told me the seats heat up to 100 degrees he used a infrared red gun which measure the heat. I have had enough, now my Bluetooth is having the 15 minute problem, with volume too low. My radio is not working correctly. I am told they can only fix the problems if Korea approves it. I feel this is the worst customer service anyone can receive.
When the second car stated heating up I asked several people to drive my new car yet I did not tell them what was the problem with the car. I then ask them to write a letter about their experience of driving my car. Three felt the seats heating up yet only two wrote a letter.
I have found another customer with the same problem on Hyundai think tank. He tried to a year at the time of his posting.
