Hyundai Motor America Complaint - 2008 Sante Fe Brake Issues
WEST SENECA, NEW YORK -- I googled today and found other reviews. I see I am not the only one who has a brand new 2008. Only 3 weeks old to me and it is at 1100 miles. Lost the brakes twice this past Friday. Once I was trying to stop and they were not there but, finally at last moment as I tried to steer to a ditch they finally grabbed. Then on my return trip I was fully stopped but, still not confident. I left two car lengths in front of me. Good thing the brake let go and my SUV shot forward. Luckily as I quickly hit the brake it grabbed this time. Got the vehicle home and called the tow to go back to the dealer. Dealer did give me a used 2007 car to drive. The salesman told me the service department narrowed it down to the master cylinder. But, today when I called with a suggestion my brother had they insisted they couldn't get the problem to duplicate and at this moment don't think theres anything wrong. I am uncomfortable and do not want to drive it waiting for it to happen. I will not be happy if they do not replace what would be the cause just because they can't duplicate. Do we have to wait until I hit a car or worse yet have an accident where someone it injured or killed before they consider this issue to be real? Will post more as I continue with this saga. So much for buying new and not having anything to worry about.
Maybe Hyundai is not the best choice in vehicles. It's great warranty but, not if I am going to have accidents because of inferior quality of parts they use.
