Hyundai Motor America Complaint - Timing Belt Issues - Beware!
ARIZONA -- I purchased a 2002 Accent. A principle reason was because the touting of the 100,000 mi/10 year warranty. The salesman never said anything about the 60,000 service. Now at 63,000mi my timing belt broke. After contacting the dealer I have discovered that without the service visit they won't cover anything... and so I paid to have it towed to Aamco. They replaced the belt for 284.00 but the engine is dead so for about 4000.00 they will rebuild my engine! The car isn't worth that much. So until I figure out what to do I am driving my daughters '96 Toyota (at 158,000mi).
So---Watch that warranty!
