Complaints & Reviews

poor customer service and repair

The following is an account of how terrible the Service Dept and Management at Keith Hawthorne Hyundai in...

when I took the car in the service department made every excuse in the book to avoid looking at the car

In may 2008 we purchased a new 2008 Hyundai Elantra for our daughter. In January 2009 we received our first snow fall, this is when the problem started. Our daughter told us that when she breaks the car does not stop. I (dad) took the car around the block and when I step on the breaks, while driving on snow, the break pedal locks in the up position and the ABS breaks do not stop the car for another 10 to 20 feet. When I applied the breaks the pedal actually pushed my foot up as the pedal rose, the break pedal made a loud thumping sound (it also vibrated) and I was not able to push the pedal down as it locked in the up position.

The next day I made an appointment with the dealer where we purchased the car. When I took the car in the service department made every excuse in the book to avoid looking at the car. I was even told this was normal, which I told them it was not. I requested they take the car out for a drive and they refused. I have been trying to find out if other drivers have had this issue with this model and make of car and a few folks have.

    Fuel consumption is very very high ( I am getting an average of about 5-7 kms per litre petrol Clutch setting is improper and car engines shuts down while pick up. There is regular JERKING in the engine, and this is more noticable when the A/C is on.

the gear gets stuck frequently

The vehicle developed reverse gear problem immediately after its 2ND free service. The gear gets stuck frequently. I requested the concerned dealer many times to fix the reverse gear problem.Though they gave patient hearing to the problem and fixed/replaced some parts in the vehicle the latest on 30.01.2010 but could not rectify the defect. I have been facing much inconvenience on this account while driving.Further i had to spend considerable amount for the transportation purposes besides wastage of time for taking the vehicle to the workshop for checkups. It may be mentioned here that i came to know through some reliable source that one lot of i10 vehicles have developed the same problem due to faulty gear boxes.it seems that my vehicle is one of them.

In view of the above facts it is requested kindly to look into the matter and get the faulty gear box replaced without further delay so that i may not face any such problem in future. Hope to hear from you by return mail.

    My 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.5L has what the dealer calls a drive by wire accelerator. In other words it has no cable from the accelerator petal to the engine. It is almost impossible to accelerate smoothly with this system. When the accelerator is gently pressed, the car barely moves forward. When the accelerator is pressed a little more, it races forward. This is a serious safety defect in the design of the vehicle.

cheat & fraud - non delivery of the car and delay in refund of booking amount

Dear Sir,

A number of complaints have been posted against A1 Hyundai, Sakinaka, Andheri East, Mumbai and now I am their latest victim.

I have booked a car (Hyundai i10 Asta 1.2 WS GLS AT) from A1 Hyundai showroom on July 4th in my wife's name (Anu Goyal) and paid an advance of Rs. 50, 000/- by cheque number 113532 dated 4/7/10 drawn on HSBC Bank.

However, even after waiting for 32 days for the delivery, A1 Hyundai failed to get an allotment of the vehicle from Hyundai and kept making false promises.

On August 6, I asked the dealer (Mr. Lucky) to canceled the booking and refund the booking amount and he agreed to refund money withing 8-10 days. However, now he is not even refunding my booking amount citing that there are no funds in their account.

Could you please advice, how should I get my refund of my booking amount from them.

Regards,

Vishal Gupta

the vehicle is not delivered till now and also unsure when it will be delivered

I have booked Hyundai I20 Asta(O) on 27 Aug 2009, for which the promised delivery date was 25 September 2009. The vehicle is not delivered till now and also unsure when it will be delivered.

(I have collected the order number KUN have raised with Hyundai and surprised to know that the order was placed on 10th September 2009, though I have booked the vehicle on 27 August 2009 itself. Moreover, there was no communication from their end about the reason for this delay or overall delay of delivery of vehicle and my calls were also not taken by the representative.)

stupid mechanics

I left to go on vacation with my 82 year old father on July 5, 2010. We were going to Oklahoma to see family...

bad service

Very frustrated with the service dept.

My car(HYUNDAI, 2003 SONATA) had problems with rotars, power steering, and fluid lines on Thursday (7/22) and dropped my car at this service dept on 7/22. The service dept. associate told me to pick my car on Monday(7/26). However, when I visited in on Monday (7/26), the service associate apologized to me, saying that my car wouldn't be ready until Thursday (7/29) because of difficulty in getting the parts. So I patiently waited until Thursday (7/29). On Thursday (7/29) morning (11AM), they told me that they had received my parts. However, they had difficulty time to change my parts. HYUNDAI SERVICE dept was having DIFFICULT time in changing their own HYUNDAI parts.

The service associate told me to wait until late Friday (7/30) or Saturday (8/1) because it was so difficult for them to change their own parts and my car parts were so rusty. The associate also mentioned that I should understand their situation. Who on earth can understand that HYUNDAI service dept just can't change their parts right away and they need more than 2 days to change their own parts. I was so frustrated.

Since I observed that they were hesitated to change the fluid lines at the beginning, I told the service associate to change the rest of them (rotars and power steering) except the fluid lines. Then the associate told me that my car would be ready by 5:30pm on Friday (7/30).

When I shared this story with other people, they said that "RIDICULOUS." and "FUNNY." HYUNDAI Service dept. can't change their HYUNDAI parts. I have been a royal customer of HYUNDAI car over 8 years and never had a problem like this. I think this location (HYUNDAI, HOT SPRINGS, AR) needs a COMPETENT MECHANICS.

    Have a 2002 Sonata that is rusting terribly by one of the back wheels and the passenger door. Also purchased tires through Extreme Hyundai 16, 000 miles ago and they just told me I need new tires. Guess the brand they sell for the same price as I could have gotten good Firestone tires at are just crap.

poor & skelm deal

Letter sent to Hyundai with no response to date

1. During the week of the 25th – 29th January 2010 our client approached Michael "Angelo", employed by your company, and indicated to him that she was urgently wanting to purchase either a double cab light delivery vehicle alternatively a sports utility vehicle in the price range of approximately R 100 000.00. Michael told her that he did not have anything in that price range but that he would try and find such a vehicle for her;
2. On Saturday 30th January 2010 our client was contacted by Michael who advised her that he had found a Land Rover Discovery which would be ideal for her. The vehicle was being sold for approximately R 127 900.00, but he would sell her the vehicle for R 88 000.00;
3. On Monday 1st February 2010 our client instructed Michael to proceed to apply for financing for the Discovery. Our client took her vehicle, a 2001 Toyota Tazz, to Michael and after inspecting it Michael told our client that the Tazz was in a good condition and that he would give her the full trade-in value of R 34 000.00 for the Tazz. At no stage did he indicate to our client that the price for the Discovery would be R 88 000.00 after trading in the Tazz;


4. During the course of the day our client enquired from Michael as to the progress in applying for finance. She was told that he was waiting for a reply from the banks;
5. On Tuesday the 2nd February 2010 our client was informed by Michael that financing had been declined as our client's name had been blacklisted on ITC. Our client immediately obtained credit reports from both Transunion as well as Experian which indicated no adverse credit reports;
6. She immediately phoned Wesbank who within a few minutes approved her credit application. This was communicated to Michael and he was instructed to proceed with the necessary so that our client could take delivery of the Discovery that same day;
7. The Discovery was, inter alia, taken to the testing centre to obtain a roadworthy certificate so as to register the Discovery on our client's name;
8. It must be placed on record that at no stage up to this point was any mention made to our client that the Discovery was being sold voetsoots. Michael did mention that the brake warning light on the instrument panel was coming on but that they had taken the Discovery to a mechanic who could find no fault with the brakes;
9. At 16:30 on the afternoon of the 2nd February 2010 our client, together with writer hereof, proceeded to your business premises to sign the necessary documentation and to take delivery of the Discovery. Amongst other things she was also sold a warranty from SA Warranties;
10. The documentation drafted by Wesbank did however not reflect the agreement concluded with Michael.

In terms of the credit agreement from Wesbank our client has to pay the following:
10.1 a cash price of R95 000.00 instead of the R 88 000.00 agreed upon;
10.2 R3000.00 for service and delivery. The Discovery was never serviced by yourselves prior to delivery. In addition our client came to your business premises to collect the Discovery. Your company did not have to deliver the Discovery. Consequently this sum of R3000.00 is being charged for services and delivery never rendered;
10.3 R5 999.00 for the warranty. The cover note annexed to the warranty booklet indicates that only an amount of R 4 985.20 is payable. Therefore an additional amount of R1013.80 was paid to you by Wesbank, and which amount has to be repaid by our client to Wesbank, for the warranty but which is not the amount payable to SA Warranties.


In addition the initial deposit is reflected as being R16 000.00 and not R34 000.00 less the outstanding amount due to Wesbank being R14 774.40 as at 4 February 2010, i.e
R19 225.60. In other words an amount of R 3 225.60 is unaccounted for;
11. After signing the documentation, Michael produced a document in terms whereof our client was purchasing the Discovery voetstoots. Michael informed our client that she could not take delivery of the Discovery if she did not sign the document. She was advised that if anything was wrong with the Discovery, she must claim from her maintenance plan as he had come down so far with the price. Not only was this the first time any mention was made that the Discovery was being sold voetstoots but was our client in effect being illegally coerced into signing a document against her will. Out of desperation just to get the Discovery she signed the document;
12. Whilst our client was signing the abovementioned documentation, writer hereof waited outside at the used vehicle lot. At one stage Michael indicated to the writer hereof that he was taking the Discovery to have it refuelled. As he was driving out of the lot, writer hereof heard a loud noise coming from the right rear of the Discovery;
13. After Michael had returned with the Discovery and our client had finished signing the papers, Michael proceeded to hand the Discovery over to our client. It is at this stage that our client and writer hereof noticed several problems with the Discovery, namely:
13.1 The ignition key was falling apart and was held together with blue insulation tape.
13.2 Upon attempting to unlock the central locking of the Discovery only one door, being the front passenger's door, would unlock. Michael tried to explain this away by pretending as if the central locking had worked only a few minutes ago;
13.3 Several lights on the instrument panel remained on after the DFiscovery had been started. They included the TC (traction control) light, the ABS light and the descent warning indicator. Once again Michael tried to explain these warning indicators away by stating that they had not come on previously;
14. Despite these problems our client was eventually able to drive home with the Discovery.


15. However during the course of the next day the noise from the right rear wheel became worse. Writer hereof decided to inspect the right rear wheel and discovered that the brake pads were so worn down that metal was braking on metal and the brake disc had been worn away.This, as any mechanic and second hand dealer will know, is extremely dangerous as not only is a vehicle not able to brake properly but can the brakes seize up, thereby causing the vehicle to lose control and cause a serious accident, with a possibility of injuries and/or loss of life;
16. It was also discovered that no users manual or service history was in the Discovery;
17. On the morning of the 4th February 2010 our client telephonically contacted Errol at your business and informed him of the problems. Our client was advised that she was to bring the Discovery to your business premises immediately to enable your company to effect the necessary repairs. Writer hereof personally took the Discovery to Errol and requested him to have the brakes fixed as well as the central locking system. He was also advised that it had to be done before 16:30 the same day as we lived on a farm 11 kilometres from town and had no other means of transport. In the presence of writer hereof the keys to the vehicle was given to a driver with instructions to take the Discovery to one Gerhard to have the brakes repaired before the end of the day;
18. At 13:00 writer hereof walked to your business premises to enquire whether the repairs to the Discovery was finished. Upon arrival one of the ladies phoned Gerhard to enquire about the progress of the repair of the Discovery. Writer hereof was handed the phone and he spoke to one Karlien at Gerhard's business. Writer hereof informed her that the Discovery must be repaired by that same afternoon as we had no other transport to get home. She indicated that the driver of your business had dropped the Discovery off with only instructions to repair the brakes. Nothing had been mentioned about the repairs having to be effected the same day. She advised writer hereof that she would speak to Gerhard and phone writer hereof back
19. The same afternoon Karlien phoned writer hereof and advised that the brake pads and disc would have to be replaced. These items had to be ordered and might only arrive the following day or Monday the 8th February 2010. During the discussion it transpired that the brakes were so bad that they could not allow us to take the Discovery before the brakes had been repaired as it was too dangerous to drive. They also informed writer hereof that they could not understand how the Discovery could have passed a roadworthy test in such a condition. This confirmed my suspicions. She told me to contact your business to discuss the problem;


20. Writer hereof immediately phoned your business and as Errol was away on business Jackie assisted. Writer hereof advised her of the problem, especially our transport problem. She told writer hereof that she would phone back;
21. After a few minutes she called writer hereof and from the outset indicated that our client had signed a voetstoots agreement and that our client would be liable for the costs of repairing the vehicle. This immediately infuriated writer hereof and he advised Jackie in no uncertain terms that a voetstoots agreement did not protect a seller from obvious defects in a vehicle. She was also advised that Michael had advised our client that he had had the brakes checked and nothing wrong had been found. Jackie once again indicated that she would call back;
22. After a few minutes Jackie phoned and indicated that they would repair the brakes at their cost and would give the Toyota Tazz back to our client as a loan vehicle to use whilst the Discovery was being repaired. She offered to have the Tazz delivered to writer hereof but he declined advising her that he would come to your premises to collect it;
23. On writer hereof's way to your business premises he stopped at the Greater Tzaneen Municipality to determine how a copy of the roadworthy report of the Discovery could be obtained. Writer was informed that the report would be at the testing centre but that they could give provide a computer printout indicating when and who tested the Discovery. Writer hereof was also advised by a member of the municipalitiy's staff to take the issue of the Discovery passing a roadworthy test with defective brakes further;
24. Upon writer hereof's arrival at your business he was told that the Tazz had been taken for a valet but instructions had been given to the driver to bring it back;
25. Whilst waiting writer hereof requested a copy of the Discovery's registration certificate to enable him to investigate the matter further at the municipality. This was given to him;
26. Writer hereof also requested a copy of the signed voetstoots agreement. He was quite surprised to be informed that the signed voetstoots agreement was no longer in our client's file and nobody knew what had happened to it. Writer was told that the signed agreement had incorrect figures on it not reflecting the discount given to our client and that he had to ask Michael where it was. In its place a new agreement had been drawn up;
27. After about an hour Jackie informed writer hereof that the Tazz was not available as the seats were wet and some of them had been removed. She arranged that our client could use a Golf and writer was handed the keys to it;


28. Later the afternoon our client and writer hereof returned to your business. Our client signed further documents but upon advice from myself refused to sign the new voetstoots agreement. It was also arranged that an Isuzu would be given to our client to use instead of the Golf as the gravel road to our house was not drivable with a normal passenger vehicle;
29. On Monday 8th February 2010 writer hereof was informed by a reliable source that in Tzaneen was located a business specialising in the maintenance and repairs of Land Rovers. Writer hereof proceeded to the business as per the directions given and arrived at Venture Overland. There writer hereof spoke to a member of the business and informed him about the warning lights which continuously burned on the instrument panel. Writer hereof was advised that it could be a broken sensor or something more serious. They would only be able to determine the reason for the warning lights if they could inspect the Discovery. Writer also informed them of a shudder in the Discovery when it was travelling in first gear. He was informed that it might be a loose engine mounting or bell housing. They confirmed that they specialised in Land Rovers, being the only vehicles they worked on, and that they had the necessary equipment to test and repair our client's Discovery. They were surprised to hear that the Discovery had been taken to another service centre as your company had via Hentie on several occasions in the past used their services to service Land Rovers. In fact one of the directors of your company had purchased a Land Rover through them;
30. Our client heard nothing further from your business until the afternoon of the 9th February 2010 when both she and writer hereof went to your business to find out when she could get her Discovery back. We were informed by Errol that the brakes had been repaired and the Discovery was with another business to install a new central locking system. This would apparently cost R4000.00. The Discovery would be finished on the 10th February 2010;
31. When writer hereof asked Errol about the warning lights which continually came on, he was told that we should wait a month until the warranty came into effect. This came as a great surprise to writer hereof, for the following reasons:
31.1 In terms of the warranty the effective date of the policy is on the date on which the policy was purchased (page 3 under heading Effective Date of Policy). The warranty would therefore have commenced on the 2nd February 2010;


31.2 SA Warranty does not accept liability for the cost of repairs or replacement where the cause of failure existed at the time of sale of the policy (page 11, point 1 under heading Exclusions). This would mean that SA Warranties would not cover defects which were existent when our client purchased the Discovery;
31.3 Should anyone commit or attempt to obtain a benefit under the policy by improper means, all benefits shall immediately cease and the policy cancelled. (page 3 under the heading Fraud). This is in addition to the normal criminal charges which may be brought for insurance fraud. Any attempt by either yourselves or our client to have defects which were present at the time of purchasing the Discovery, repaired by SA Warranties subsequently would amount to fraud;
31.4 In addition a pre-delivery inspection report must be attached to the proposal form at point of sale for collection by the Administrator to ensure compliance (page 15 under heading PRE-DELIVERY INSPECTION REPORT). No such report was ever completed by your business;
32. In light of the above it is evident that:
32.1 No inspection report was done;
32.2 The warranty does not cover any of the present defects to the vehicle;
32.3 The suggestion by Errol that our client waits a month to have the warning lights sorted out so that the warranty can be used amounts to suggesting our client commits insurance fraud. Our client will most definitely not be a party to such criminal activity.

As a result of the circumstances surrounding the purchase of the Discovery and the type of actions taken by your staff, as laid out above, our client has lost all faith and trust in your company. Amongst other things she was lied to about obtaining financing for the vehicle, misled about the purchase price of the vehicle as well as the value which she would receive for the Tazz, coerced into signing a voetstoots agreement which two days later suddenly disappeared and misled about the condition of the vehicle especially the brakes, central locking system and the warning lights on the instrument panel. She was also advised to in effect attempt to commit insurance fraud.


She has therefore instructed us to advise you that she requires the following from your company:

1. A refund of the difference between the purchase price of R88 000.00 quoted by Michael and the amount of R95 000.00 which Wesbank has financed the Discovery and which our client has to pay, i.e. R7000.00;
2. A refund for both the excess which our client has been charged for SA Warranties warranty being the sum of R1013.80 as well as the R3000.00 which our client has to pay for the supposed service and delivery;
3. Proof of all repairs effected by yourselves to date;
4. The Discovery must be taken to Venture Overland or other authorised Land Rover service centre for a full and complete inspection and service. All defects must be repaired including those mentioned above. Written proof that the Discovery has been inspected, serviced and all defects repaired must be delivered to our client;
5. A pre-delivery inspection report must completed as required by SA Warranties and a copy thereof delivered to our client.

These requirements are to be met on or before close of business on the 19th February 2010.

Should you fail to comply with our client's demands, a complaint, with a request for a full investigation with possible criminal charges being laid, will be submitted to the following institutions:

1. Hyundai South Africa;
2. Independent Motor Industry Ombudsman;
3. SA Warranties;
4. Motor Industries Federation;
5. Wesbank; and
6. Greater Tzaneen Municipality.

In addition our client reserves her rights to take legal action for any damages sustained.

We await your urgent confirmation by close of business tomorrow 11 February 2010, that our client's demands will be adhered to. Failing receipt of such confirmation our client will take the necessary steps to protect her rights.

does not honor their 100,000 power train warranty

I own a 2007 Hyundai (Pronounced "Hun-Day") Tuscon. Most of the reason we purchased the car was because of the warranty. The salesman said the car came with a 100, 000 mile, bumper to bumper warrenty. (Silly me, I believed him)

At 92, 000 miles, I took the car to Randy Wise Flint, MI, because it was making a strange noise. They said it was some part I'd never heard of, but having to do with where the drive shaft meets the transmission. To Randy Wise's credit, they assumed that it was covered under the 100, 000 mile warranty, and was shocked to find out that Hyundai wouldn't cover it. They said the cost would be $1, 400.00.

They gave me a number to call Hyundai directly. [protected]) I called and was connected with a very "smug" sounding woman. She said they would "Not" pay to repair the car. I remineded her of the warranty, and pointed out that the part that needed replacing, was indeed a part of the power train. This woman rudely said that it was "not" covered, and if I will look in the manual that came with the car, it says that only certain parts of the power train are covered. (not what the salesman told me)

I told her that I did not purchase the manual first and "then" buy the car, the manual came "with" the car and that the salesman specifically said: "100, 000 mile - Bumper to Bumper warranty!

At that point I asked to speak to a supervisor! She said she could "not" transfer me to anyone. (Yea Right) To be fair, Randy Wise Auto Mall treated me fairly and were as shocked as I was that Hyundai would not cover the warranty. Randy Wise sells American made cars also.

However, If you buy a Hyundai, you may run the risk of being treated like I was. (Chances are good as I am no one special, just a fool who was silly enough to purchase one of their automobiles)

Maybe in Korea where these cars are made, they purchase the manual first before they buy the car, but here in America, we tend to take the salesman at their word when they say "100, 000 mile - Bumper to Bumper Warranty". This car has required Too Many Repairs for it's age. Next time I will BUY AMERICAN!

harrassment by dealer - spring hyundai

I completely agree with the view. recently I had a very very bad experience with Hyundai Motors India.

I had booked an Accent Executive LPG car from one of their dealers in Kolkata called Spring Hyundai. I had paid an advance payment of Rs.10, 000. I was communicated that the car will be delivered within 15 days however they intend to take time of 20 days on outside.

For 15 days - the dealer representative never bothered to contact me.

After 15 days whenever I try to contact him, he avoids on pretext that he will call back (which he never does)

Then on 16th day when I pursued him - he informs that the car has not arrived and he needs more time. When asked he says he can not comment. When asked will it get delivered or not- he informs that he doesnt know.

When asked about refund- he says - better opt for another car from them as refund is difficult.

I insisted on refund as I do not want to deal with Dealers/ Co. that doesnt honour commitments.

I was informed that he will get back- which he had never.

I had called up the customer care number - they refused to give any complaint docket number.

I mailed to their customer care - no answers till now.

PLEASE AVOID HYUNDAI- MORE OFTEN THAN NOT YOU WILL GET CHEATED.

cheating by jp nagar service center

http://www.advaithhyundai.com/service-center.asp

Hi,

This is regarding the hyundai service center at JP Nagar Bangalore run by advaith hyundai.

I had to go through a harrowing experience for 2 years going to this service center. I have stopped going here from last 1 year.

the center makes false bills, confuses the consumer to make some repairs which are not immediately needed and takes the consumer for ride with big bills. Lot of people go to this location because of proximity to the city center areas.

This experience has made me think twice regarding hyundai service. My car is 5.5 yrs old santro xing, while upgrading or recommending hyundai to others i would thing twice from now onwards.

The service person told me do AC neutralizer which will improve the AC quality, a complete false claim, This was cleaning of dust from the air ducts in car.
there were some other services which are done once in a year which he used to confuse me and do it every time.

I would request to close this service center for the good of all consumers in this area.

This is the address of hyundai service center.

No.56, 1st Main Road, Sarakki Industrial Layout,
3rd Phase J.P.Nagar, Bangalore - 560078
Tel: 080-[protected], [protected], [protected]

thanks & regards,
Consumer

    Well I too really had very bad experiences @ Advaith Hyundai JP nagar couple of times and a worst experience on 8th September 2015, I wanted to take out all the scratches from the bumper and I took my car (hyundai i20 reg#KA51MB7944)there, one of the gentlemen (Ravikumar) looked at the scratches and gave me the estimates, I have been asking him couple of questions to re-confirm the details but for most of the questions he said he will look into it and call me back even to check feasibility to cliam the insurance he said same thing, he was so ignorant and careless, I waited for his call on that day and he never called, next day morning I went there but he was not there and I still did not knew whether he is going to claim the insurance, paint the same bumper or replace it, next day someone (Vikas) called me n said my vehicle is ready, I went to collect the vehicle and he walked me through the bill that's when I got to know that I could have gone for insurance claim instead of replacing bumper with my money, I refused to pay the bill and they asked me to come next day as careless gentlemen (Ravikumar) was no not there, I went next day and he told me in words that he will adjust additional costs that I have paid in the next repair, I spoke to the feedback department about it and even they were careless about it..I preferred Advaith Hyundai JP nagar since it's 0.5 kms from my home..
    I would say it's ok not to repair/service ur vehicle instead of getting it serviced in such a service center, please stay away from this service center if u don't want to waste ur money..

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I bought my car directly from Hyundai from 2013 and I faced mentioned issue from Mid 2015 !!

    As you review my job descriptions reports from 2015 you will come to know my car had issue and it never fixed !!!

    If you go and check customer services reviews you will come to know whenever they called me I informed them that my car is still not fixed and some noise is coming from my engine and car !with my knowledge!!! I come to know that there is some issues with car and my engine and power but you guys with knowledge didn't understand !how come!can not believe it !

    last service before warranty expiry which I did, your colleague said there is no issue and all is fine with my car but still I said to them that your company trying to fix the issue after my warranty expiry and always you are charging 3 times more than outside's garages for each services and still you didn't fix the car!!

    My warranty finished May 2016 and after that ONLY I took my car 3 times to outside Garages for services because I was not happy with your company services, always they are charging ONLY!without fixing the issuessss !!

    This issue is not new issue and its almost 2 years old !! now issue become major because your company tried to save money during my car's warranty !!!

    If you check and search at Google you will come to know more than 1000 complaint is in sites for same issue!!!ENG SHUT OF WHILE DRIVING.

    https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t30024_ds794165

    http://www.carcomplaints.com/Hyundai/Santa_Fe/2012/engine/engine_stalls_shuts_off_while_driving.shtml

    http://www.automotiveforums.com/t235762-engine_shuts_off_while_driving.html

    http://www.hyundai-forums.com/md-2011-2016-elantra-sedan-coupe/345961-2014-shutting-off-while-driving.html

    and more and more ...

    So for me is not acceptable that you said you will charge me 1K to ONLY find the issue and then you will give me a quotation of 15K or 20K or 30K if I accept, you will fix the car if not I have to take my car as it is with recovery to other garages !!!

    Even if you give special discount of 45-50%, its not make me happy at all ! because issue should sorted out during my car guaranty time .which it was free of cost for me !now you are asking me to pay half of it !???for the issue which is factory fault!!

    For sure you all knows what im talking about !!!this is not new for you guys!!

    Hyundai should fix the issue for free for sure other wise i will open case about factory fault which it is danger !!!
    Look forward to hearing from you ASAP, As i need my car badly .

    Best Regards

dealership

Our van is bogging down and the engine sputters. It has to be pulled over as it loses power and restarted a couple of times. After complaining to the dealership (Southern Maryland Toyota Hyundai), they would just reset the check engine light (the first three times) and they claimed that they didn't log us down with the complaint when we most assuredly did (How else does our check engine light get reset?) The THIRD time, they ordered a cadillac convertor to replace the new one (because that's what "the code "says--liek they don't have real auto techs--just machines to tell them what it thinks). They replaced this and the Next Day--the same problem. Took it back in the following week (can't always have the time in the world to take from work for thier ingenuity), they replaced it with another O2 sensor this time. The next day, it was doing the same thing!!! These people don't have a clue and I'm making sure I take it higher than this. Take your vehicle elsewhere.

poor customer service

I am absolutely shocked with the treatment I received from Hyundai. I had a complaint about the servicing of my car (they didn't replace my wipers as per my request, they merely cleaned it). I went back to Hyundai, upon my arrival I had to wait for ages for Andries Burger (the Service Manger I will have you know) to finish his PERSONAL CALL, without any acknowledgement of my arrival. After he finished his call, I was greeted with a 'yes' - not even an apology for making me wait. He was very unhelpful with my complaint and said that he wouldn't go out of his way to help me since he didn't make money out of the sale of the car (I bought my car in Cape Town and had in services in Hermanus). I was gob-smacked. I went home and decided to phone him to again state how unhappy I was with the service I received. When I got him on the phone and started explain my thoughts, he got furios, raised his voice and said 'you can't talk to me like that, I'm much older than you are (I'm 32, not that it matters) blah-blah' and then proceeded to SLAM the phone down in my ear! Have you EVER!?! I reported him to Hyundai Head Offices - nothing's happened since.Do not buy a Hyundai - BAD client service!Selling my car.

    My Hyundai is terrrible --almost as terrible as the customer service from the dealers and the company. If you buy a Hyundai, you will regret it. The warranty and roadside assistance is not good.

    Ek is Afrikaansprekend. Ek het op 20 Desember 'n Hyundai Getz 1.4 kontant by Boksburg Hyundai gekoop. Het tot en met vandag 19 Januarie nog nie my lisensie en nommerplate ontvang nie! Dit nadat ek 'n riti in die stortreën vanaf Pretoria na Hyundai in Boksburg aangepak het. My tydelike registrasie verval ook vandag. Wat moet ek doen! Hulle het my belowe dat hulle die nommerplate gister by my huis sou kom opsit omdat hulle 'opgeslip' het!

    i do agree with the above.I recently serviced my car 90 000 km + Quoted for 2500 +-, ended up R9000 later, that is not the problem it is the poor customer and client service experienced at the Milnerton Branch in Cape Town. First of all upon arrival, let us say confusion - that is after numerous conformation of booked service days before. ( by RUAN Fourie) . Ignored by person number one in front of service bay waiting for person number to, see you standing their, get instructed by some workshop apprentices to drive through but there are cars in front of you that is not moving . Workshop personnel already covering your interior with plastic, first time i saw this cine i bought the car 2005. Eventually a Lydie appears very arrogant and forward, not a pleasant experience started the book in process. She had a big issue about my surname and insisted that i must be Afrikaans and not English .(I mean really!!) I t just snowballed from their . Telephone manners from the agent to inform me was very unpleasant - border on rude and belittling - tone of voice, rather not comment.This was the closest that i wanted to ask for another agent, but then i realised this is the best that i will get from this branch. This was carrying on for 3 days ... . When it came to the time that i needed to settle the account -well let me say this who ever works in their finance section at the Milnerton branch needs continuous training in the type of service as well as methods of payment etc etc etc. If YOU DO NOT KNOW get somebody to help.At the end of the day i had to pay Cash, due to the incompetense of the individual who does not know her work. Upon collect the vehicle, well i had to wait since priority deals was going down while the atmosphere was tense .Did payment, had to wait for receipt -Printers does not work -, apparently ongoing problem. No Last parade inspection was done with me upon collection of vehicle, i had to do it myself, But every body very eager to do First parade inspection ! ODD

defective vehicle

Neal and massy automotive.
Lady young road,
Morvant,
Trinidad and tobago.

To whom it may concern:

This is to inform you that I the above mention will be acting on behalf of my client dr. Muntaz muslim whom in 2007 january 12th purchased a hyundai tuscon from your company,
From that day onwards he have been experiencing problems with the said vehicle first was his certified copy of ownership a legal document in which the wrong color of the vehicle was written and which took your company 13 months to rectify
Then in 2008 march the a/c started giving problems in addition to that the automobile horn. The a/c compressor was changed
Then in may 2008 the said situation happened again this time the a/c compressor was changed together with the automobile horn.
Then in july 2008 the said problem recurred the a/c compressor was changed along with that the radiator was deemed defective and was changed.
In august 2008 there were oil spills on the inside of the bonnet my client called the gm of the company and 2 technicians was sent to ascertain the magnitude of the problem they told him that the damper cable needed to be replaced but when the vehicle was taken to the company to rectify the problem the engine was washed and they told him that nothing was wrong, on inspection of the vehicle my client found the engine shield missing, the then reported it to the service manager in which they placed a substitute one which was old.
Then in october 2008 the smell of electrical wire burning was being smelt anytime the a/c was on my client reported it to the service manager he was never told what the problem was but when the vehicle was returned to him he was told that he should not have any problems again.
In august 2009 the a/c was not working for the fourth time he reported it to the service manager he was then told that the company had to request an advance module from their suppliers in which it took three weeks, then the company replaced it.
In october 2009 the engine was leaking oil and giving problems in which a harsh grinding sound was heard anytime he started the vehicle he told the service manager the service manager told him to bring in the vehicle to the service when they examined the vehicle the told him that there was a build up sludge. Build up of sludge can mean a lot of things the viscosity of the oil, the climate or the overheating of the engine but the lay blame that my client did not service his vehicle for 20k km but then what baffles me is that the engine had over half the required oil so tell me who is telling the truth and who is not.
Well we will deal with that in due time the engine was overhauled and deemed to be in proper working condition with the exception of the a/c pulley which they the company had to order ans when the vehicle went in for service on the 1st june 10 it was then fitted on.
My client was then requested by your officials that he should desist from sending the company which is hmc and nmatt email which make them look bad
But what about the inconvenience of my client for the past three years plus what about the stress your company has put him under because for the stress my client has been suffering from epilepsy can hmc and nmatt pay him for his mental stress by them selling him a defective vehicle.
Regardless of how many km the vehicle has done the amount of time the said vehicle was in your service department is ridiculous.

I have advise my client that all correspondence should come through me before he speak to any official from nmatt.in addition to that my client have made certain claims as regards the defective vehicle which was sold to him either a new vehicle or a full refund which I deem should be most agreeable.
If this matter goes to high court you are liable of loosing much more than that plus all his legal fees

To whom it may concern:

This note is to inform you that in due respect to my emails to you in which you blatantly disregarded and without hesitation you have disrespected and insulted my client dr. Muntaz muslim by firstly selling him a deffective vehicle and now you have the avudasity to offer him a what you call a reasonable price.
If you call this justice I barrister donald wayne don't, I call this robbery with a passion a total rip off, you just cannot take customers money and give them third class vehicles.
That is what you have done to my client and you have 5 more days to come up with his offer of all his monies he spent for his car his attorney fees plus fees for his mental anguish or a brand new hyundai tuscon without defects
If his demands is not met within the 5 day period you will feel the full brunt of the law
P. S there is more clients like dr. Muslim and I will be most eager to work with them for their satisfaction

damage on the bumper

Dear Sir / Madam
On the 25th of May my vehicle was towed to East London by a Towing company, when I collected it I noticed that the bumper was damaged. I immediately reported that to Mr.Breyton who advised me that I must consult the Towing Company as it was their fault.

I did call the Insurance and spoke to Anton who wanted me to send him pictures of the damages, which I did. He responded by sending me the Check List which was signed by East London People, and there was no mention of the damages.
On the 8th of June when I was in East London, I consulted Mr Shane, the Workshop Manager and even printed the correspondence from the insurance company and gave it to him.
He promised to come back to me and also confirmed my number. Up to day he never contacted me. Instead on the 14th of June when I was in East London again I spoke to Mr Savesh who told me that I cannot talk to the Manager as he was busy with meetings, and he told me that there is nothing that they can do .
Can you please help me with my car.
Yours faithfully

extremely poor service

I had sent my car(Hyundai Tucson) for service and maintanance on 08-06-2010 and was advised the same will be ready the next day. The second day i made an inquiry after no one made a phone call to advise the time of delivery of the vehicle and was advised it will be ready on the next day(10-06-2010). I still become partient. On 10th June, I made again another inquiry in the morning and was told it will be ready by evening and will be advised the time of delivery to my office. At 3 in the afternoon again I made a call to inquire and to be told it will ready the next day. Why on earth wouldnt someone told me the first day that it will take 3-5 days to fix whatever was the problem, what kind of customer service is this, for a client who is paying for service to start begging to be services. Despite the fact that I wanted to buy a new model ix 35 Tucson. Hyundai will never be my brand anymore. I cant be served like a begger when I am paying for it
