I bought a 2002 Sonata, my upper motor mount went bad. My motor is a 2.7 and my mount checks in as a 2001 2.5. My mount would be $359.00 from the dealer but $122.00 at the auto parts store! WOW BUT THERE'S MORE!!
Being I have the 2001 mount it would be at the very LOW cost of $222.00 or off the internet at $183... What a big ripoff!!! Next time I'm buying American!!!
NANUET, NEW YORK -- The best warranty in America doesn't mean anything if Hyundai finds a way to tiptoe around it, which is exactly what they do. My 2003 Accent had transmission leak that was not a result of negligence, but a manufacturer defect. I had to fight with the dealership AND corporate for almost 2 weeks to get the repair covered under warranty. Even then, the clutch(which normally isn't covered) needed to be replaced because it was damaged as a result of the leak. Corporate agreed, but the dealership didn't, and I had go elsewhere to get my car fixed correctly.
I'm still waiting for Hyundai to compensate my for my loss, since it was their malfunction.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK -- I have had issues since day one with my car electrical problems and so forth and every time I brought it in for repair they would tell me that sorry that is not covered. Here is your $800 bill for changing some break pads and some other crap and so forth. My car has been a lemon since day one. I have 44,000 miles on it and so far I have the engine seal broken the radiator fried the water pump broken 3 times, the ac and heater broken, all electrical systems broken and this is just a small part of the problems. With my extended 100k miles warranty no matter what nothing is ever covered. Every one I speak to can not help they say dealers do not have to do service and the customer care says that the dealers cannot be forced to do the work. For some reason I get the picture that they pay very little if it goes on warranty.2 Replies - Latest reply on 08/14/2007Add reply
AVENEL, NEW JERSEY -- I waited 6 hours for service of my car only to be told that i would need to come back the next day. They provided me with a loner car at my expense for gas and tolls. When i picked up my car, the brakes were still not serviced. I complained and complained. Two months later, they again looked at the problem and insisted the work was complete. It was not!

No administrator from the dealership or the main office ever contacted me about this issue. I made call after call. And wrote letter after letter. I called the owner of the dealership and he has not returned a call or written a letter to date.
Lousy warranty and customer service
RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA -- My 2003 Hyundai quit running. It has 64,000 miles. It was towed to the dealer who "inspected" it and told me it would cost $1,628 to repair. I complained and asked that they have the "factory" review ... read full review4 Replies - Latest reply on 03/22/2007
