  1. KONA ENGINE FAILURE AFTER 6000 MILES. 1.0 T-GDi

    Kona forum
    Sorry about your car, but it's cool you are offered a 3 cylinder 1L motor. No such luck here in the US. I had a 1998 Suzuki built 3 cylinder 1L Metro for 14 years. It had 240,000 miles on the clock when i traded it in on my 2012 Accent. Only did timing belts in all those miles, and wear items...
  2. I have to say Goodbye

    HG (2012-) Azera
    I had not heard of this car either. Learned a bit here. https://www.edmunds.com/kia/cadenza/
  3. 2018 2.0 spark plug torque?

    LF (2015+) Sonata/i45
    I use a torque wrench on new plugs because i don't have a "calibrated wrist". I'm never sure what I'm feeling as the new sealing washer on the plug starts to crush. Once crushed, if I'm reinstalling the plug I can go by feel with no problem. Not sure, use a torque wrench, then you know. The...
  4. Is Downshifting bad?

    AD 2017+ Elantra
    Not to mention, rowing gears on a car with three pedals, is just plain fun.
  5. Spark plugs, clean or replace?

    LF (2015+) Sonata/i45
    If the plugs are out, I'd replace them. Can't hurt, and it will be one more bit of maintenance done. The old Brit repair manuals used to refer to that as "false economy".
  6. Radio/Display dead after getting interior/engine bay detailed

    MD ( 2011-2016) Elantra sedan/coupe
    I wouldn't let them start monkeying with things they don't understand, take it to a dealer and present the detail outfit with the repair bill. The dealer should be able to verify what might have caused the fault. After all the detail shop probably isn't qualified to troubleshoot your cars...
  7. Price dropped expectation..

    Palisade Forum
    Typically, you get better deals at the end of the month, and if you wait until the end of the year, then the deals should be even better, when dealers don't want to carry the current inventory to the new year. I bought a new Hyundai, finalized the deal and took possession on the 24th of...
  8. Totaled 2013 Hyundai Accent

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    How bad is it, you say it's totaled, then by definition, it's not worth repairing. It could have unibody damage and need the equivalent of frame straightening. No comprehensive insurance? To my untrained eye, it doesn't look totaled in the pic. Has a professional looked at it?
  9. A question about the SiriusXM radio subscription.

    LF (2015+) Sonata/i45
    I never got billed for royalty fees either, (USA), but got so tired of the no talent, frustrated entertainers working as the disc jockeys that never stopped talking. Come on, shut up and play music. It was like listening to AM commercial morning radio. Now I just listen to digital music i...
  10. 2013 hyundai accent poor gas mileage.

    FORUM RULES
    1) Did you buy it new? 2) How many miles on the vehicle? 3) Did the mpg suddenly drop, or always been this constant? 4) Are the mpg numbers city, mixed, or highway? My 2012 gets 32 mpg city, 37ish mpg mixed, and over 45 mpg at 65 mph on the highway. Mine is a manual 6 speed transmission by the way.
  11. Paint too thick on a new car

    General Hyundai Non-Model Specific Discussion
    I don't know how you are measuring the paint thickness, but i would bet a good body shop could see telltale signs of a repaint. Find a good one and swing by and ask them. I think it's not uncommon for brand new cars to be damaged in transit from the manufacturer and the final destination, and...

  13. HYUNDAI FUEL ECONOMY CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT

    DM 2013+Santa Fe
    Here's another thread on the same topic, maybe they can get merged to avoid confusion. https://www.hyundai-forums.com/threads/mpg-class-action-settled.659437/#post-5945139
  14. MPG class-action settled

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Probably the layers win, the consumers seldom do in a class action suit. I was involved in one against Chrysler once, I kid you not, i received a check for less than $1.00. Time will tell on this settlement. On the plus side, the Accent is still running fine with no hiccups, I'm still on the...
  15. MPG class-action settled

    RB (2012-2017) Accent
    Interesting, I looked in my spam folder and sure enough, I had a confirmation of payment too, it was received 2 days ago. I don't know why it was in the spam folder, it's the same address Hyundai has had for me always, and their emails have never landed there before. The Hyundai settlement...
  16. Transmission Issue

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Manual or automatic transmission? My 2012 6 speed manual has no weird noises, in fact it's a very slick gearbox.
  17. Computer VS pen and paper on MPG

    2019+ Hyundai Santa Fe Forum (TM)
    My dashboard computed MPG is about 5% different, (shows better MPG) when i drive mostly around town with frequent stops, when compared to the MPG numbers done manually, but on long highway trips, with few stops it's closer to the manually calculated MPG numbers. My Accent dashboard computed MPG...
  18. Dumb question - Sorry - Bolt Numbers

    Tucson Forums (Please Post In The Correct Sub Fo
    I think that number refers to the "grade" of the bolt, it's hardness. Not the size of the fastener, IE, 10mm.
  19. First Oil Change

    2019+ Hyundai Santa Fe Forum (TM)
    On my 2012 new Hyundai, I checked the oil level at delivery, before i signed the papers, kept a close eye on it until about 3k miles, and then changed it with a filter. I now use synthetic oil, and have had 2 oil analysis done, low wear metals present, no fuel or coolant present in the sample...
  20. 2017 acceleration problem (NOT DUAL CLUTCH)

    2016- Tucson/ix35 Models
    Might be a clue to tell the service department if it keeps acting up. Good luck.
