Has anyone heard of a way you can bypass the Hybrid portion of the Sonata Hybrid so you don't have to buy another 270v Battery at the cost of $5000 from the Hyundai dealer? My 2011 Sonata Hybrid
just had the engine freeze up (and my car wasn't on the engine recall list of Sept 2015). My extended warranty is replacing it next week but my technician now says my hybrid battery has only 19% charge and he won't know if it has to be replaced until the engine is replaced...they can't charge the battery someway? I'm reporting the frozen engine to Hyundai...a lot of people have had the same problems with the engine freezing - metal in the oil.
How many miles did yours have? Mine did that at 97000 miles, 2013 HSH.
