Certain things aren’t covered under warranty however. And recalls are only helpful if they have your current contact information, or if you are the original owner of the car. So, if you are the owner of an older Hyundai vehicle that is having some issues, or had some issues before you took it off the road, talk to us.

Common Problems with Hyundai Vehicles
One of the biggest complaints about the older Hyundai Elantras, especially 2009 and older, was issues with the steering. People experience sudden loss of power steering while driving and the only solution was to restart the vehicle. After this occurred frequently, consumers would take their vehicles to a mechanic to get diagnosed, and the result was a $2000-$3000 fix that required replacing or repairing the entire steering column and all its components.
If you have an older Hyundai Elantra and found you suddenly lost power steering, or the steering became incredibly stiff randomly, you may be one of the individuals to be suffering a major steering issue with your vehicle.
2.Major Electrical Issues Resulting in Engine Fire
There’s nothing like parking your car at the shopping centre, only to return an hour later with it fully ablaze. Well, believe it or not, this does happen, and apparently quite frequently with the 2007 Elantra models of Hyundai cars. Many consumers reported that they put their vehicle in park, turned it off, left it, only to find it on fire when they returned.
The majority of the engine fire reports stated that ABS module short circuited and that was the cause of the fire. This naturally prompted an immediate recall from Hyundai. However, many people are still experiencing this issue to date with their used and older Hyundai Elantra cars. If you’re the victim of a car fire due to this electrical issue, you may want to consider selling your car to a scrap car buyer like More Cash For Scrap.
3.Power Train Issues
This is another very big problem amongst older model Hyundai vehicles. Mainly, their SUV the Santa Fe. Reports of the vehicle shuddering at various speeds, not shifting properly, an inability to go above 60kms an hour, to even being unable to put the vehicle into reverse were made by consumers all across North America. Some customers started experiencing these issues after only owning the vehicle for a week.
Again, Hyundai issued a recall and repaired the vehicles of people who were contacted. So, if you’re considering buying a used SUV like the Hyundai Santa Fe, you better think again. If you currently own one, but never got contacted, check to see if your car is a part of the recall, and if it’s not, you may still want to consider selling it as the issue affected more than just the ones included in the recall notice.
