Seven Most Common Problems Hyundai Car Drivers Face in the UK

by Superior Cars Auto Repair Garage in Northampton

Hyundai is focused on manufacturing cars with superior specs, emission reducing technologies, and impressive residuals at the lowest possible ownership cost. Where most of the car manufacturers are charging extra for every added feature to their car, Hyundai has a reputation for featuring all the needed specifications ranging from Bluetooth to cruise control to sat-nav as a standard. However, technology doesn’t come alone, it also brings along a set of problems. Some arise due to driver’s ignorance, weather conditions, and road infrastructure while others spring up as a result of faulty engineering. 

Most of them are covered under 5 year manufacturer’s warranty but with some terms and conditions. The brand has so far successfully launched various models to cater to different customers with different needs, choices, budgets, and lifestyles. Most of the surveys reported that consumers are happy and satisfied with their cars in the first 3 years from the buying date. Later, service centre visits increase for repairs or replacements. Let’s have a glance at the problems with Hyundai cars that frequently pop up before drivers in the UK.

1. Engine Problems

2. Damaged Fuel Cap

3. Gearbox Fault

4. Mass Air Flow Sensor Fault

5. Clutch Issues

7. Transmission Defects

Besides the above mentioned frequent issues few other complaints have also come forward, such as seat belt detachment during crash, rattling and explosion of panoramic sunroofs, self-peeling paint, and soy wiring issues.
