Oil consumption tests completed....Results are in...

2012 Sonata 2.4L ... almost 122k miles
Test 1....600 miles 1 qt
Test 2....900 miles 1.5qts
Test 3....600 miles 1 qt
Now Hyundai wants to camera scope the motor. I would think they are looking for metal shavings and scoring on the cylinder wall.

Anyone else have to go this route or farther?

Anyone get a replacement motor with just the completed oil consumption test results?

I would go as far as possible and hope that you get a new long or short block.

I wonder if Hyundai is simply gathering data on their failed suppliers or engineering.

Ohh....They are gathering data to find blame. Hopefully they are concerned a bit about the customer.

Hope it goes somewhere, but some manufacturer's state that a qt. every 600 miles is not a problem.
Maybe they'll do like others have done and extend the engine warranty which amounts to nothing, just that one would have a car that needs oil every 600 miles, but the engine won't destroy itself.

'12 Kia Optima SX with 76K miles (perfect running with all my mods, never used oil). In Dec '18 developed slight "rod knock of death". In less than 10 days, I had a new long-block and they even moved all my modifications over! No muss, no fuss. I now have a lifetime warranty (unlimited miles/unlimited time) for all owners on the engine. Cost to me: $50 (I replaced the original serpentine belt). They also gave me a free rental during the fairly short time they had my car. I did have to do the dealership update that reflashes the ECU for the knock sensor test and as a result had to pay LAP3USA to re-pair my ECU tune to my car ($150). Car runs great, no issues, no oil usage, etc.

I'm a happy camper!


FWIW: I use Castrol Edge 0W-40 oil with the Fram Ultra XG8688 filter.

2012 Optima SX w/Premium Touring Pkg, "Spicy Red" | 81K miles (New engine at 76K)
Purchased 7/2012, built 3/13/2012 at GA plant.
Mods: LAP3 UncleBoost tune (Stage 1.5+), Injen SRI w/hydro-shield, 3/8" Magnefine Trans filter, PIAA Sports Horns, Fumoto Qwik-Valve, Saikou Michi OCCs (PCV&Intake), HKS M40XL Plugs, Ultra Racing FSTB, Nameless MM, 3"MP, CP w/Synapse SB V2 BOV, Theta2 TBS, CP-E 3" CBE, UR Crank Pulley, Eibach Pro-Kit w/TruHart, Advanti Kudos rims, Conti PureContact tires, 38% tint.

Your dealer is tolerant of mods. Most that I've dealt with were not.

Your typing is bad as mine, but I use the excuse that my 3 reattached fingers don't work too well anymore. That would be XG9688. I also recommend ANY full synthetic filter from any common brands.... Wix, Napa, Purolator, Amsoil, RoyalPurple, Ryco..... Fram synth filter is a great choice as are any synth filter. Napa Platinum is on sale for $5 and is a steal for that price point and worth stocking up a few. Synth media won't biodegrade on the garage shelf.
FRAM ULTRAŽ Spin-on Oil Filter XG9688 | FRAM
https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/PFL41334

For turbos, I recommend 5w-40 because it is a grade mentioned in the owners manual. Even though I have faith in ALL the available brands in 0w-40, for some reason, the clueless tech writers left out 0w-40, 0w-30, 10w40, 5w50, 15w50..... which I also wouldn't fear to use.

A 5w40 would usually have a slightly higher HTHS than a 0w40. And, HTHS is the front line protection coming from your oil.

And to annoy the use it forever greenie crowd, I recommend replace the oil/filter at the severe service intervals in your owners manual. All data that I've seen has convinced me that GDI needs it. Nothing has proven otherwise.

I agree....haven't heard this happening to anyone else hear on the forum.

I was told after test #3 that the paperwork would be submitted but sometimes Hyundai Warranty Dept responds back and wants to look inside the motor. Service manager stated he called them and they want to look inside motor.

Probably a waste of energy to try and make any sense of why Hyundai does some of the things they do, they have their own regimented process and I wouldn't be at all surprised if every X number of claims requires some sort of additional proof - like a look inside of the engine. I'd think a savvy dealer would keep some pics lying around of both bottom end failures and top end failures - after all they are anything but rare events.

If the bearings don't get you then there's always the rings, but in any event enjoy the new engine , you deserve it !

Just the facts ma'am - 168k and rising by the hour
Death, taxes and Theta II engine failures
