NHTSA a government agency can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them.
You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which if any recalls pertain to your car. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them.
They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car.
They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.This is a fun comfortable car that goes through anything a New England winter can throw at it.
Looks great, drives great and gets better than rated gas mileage and I drive a car hard. The bluetooth phone interface sucks, but that is the only bad thing I can say.
I've put over 35, miles on the car and it still drives and rides like a new car. The dealer can make all the difference. The one I bought the car at is great for service etc. I plan to keep this car for a long time, that is if I can get it away from my girlfriend! Update June Still love this car but be warned, do not put Hanook tires on it. Replaced them with Generals and the car feels like new!
Update Dec. Update Jan now with 80k miles and not a single issue since the last warranty repair. Still gets great mileage and handles very well. Everything is holding up very well. I plan to keep this car indefinitely! We have owned this car for 4 months and it's crapped out on us twice. Both times were electronic related. For some reason Hyundai can't get the electrical right on this thing.
The first time anything happened was when we tried to go somewhere and the car wouldn't start. Nobody could start it, so we got it towed back to the dealership and finally someone fixed it. Two months later, the car started knocking. I went back to the dealership and they told us it had to do with the heating and air conditioning system on it. Now, I'm just trying for the lemon law, so I can get my money back and buy another car that hopefully works better. In short, I wouldn't recommend wasting your money, the dealership is selling it for cheap for a reason.
I regularly drive across the country and it is a good ride. I would like more flexibility with armrests but a pillow gets the job done when spending more than hours at a time driving. No repairs needed but I will need better all-season tires if I spend time in the snow. Bluetooth and heated seats are great. Make sure the dealer is reputable and will stand behind the car.
I had to take it back to the dealer twice in the first week that owned it.Hyundai has found a new problem that can cause its car engines to fail or catch fire, issuing yet another recall to fix problems that have affected more than 6 million vehicles during the past 3,5 years.

2015 Hyundai Tucson
I left the car at vandergriff Hyundai for a day with N. Add Complaint. It did not show any signs of failure but as I was driving the engine made a bang noise and just stopped and would not start again. After I did some research I found out that this is not the first Tucson to have engine failure after 70, miles.
Entire muffler pipes and catalater converter fell off car in one piece while driving the vehicle and pulled bumper out of alignment when it came down. Thankfully was only traveling at a slow speed in a residential area and was not on the highway. Heard a loud bang and emediatly felt and heard a change in engine. The contact owns a Hyundai Tucson. While the vehicle was idle, a raccoon entered the engine compartment and ate the insulation.
Taylor Hyundai of perrysburg eckel junction rd, perrysburg, oh was contacted and referred the contact to the manufacturer since the vehicle was not covered under warranty. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified and admitted that they used a soy-based compound for the insulation. The manufacturer also stated that they could not assist since there were no recalls for the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 42, Engine failed at miles.
I was taking left into my drive, in front of oncoming traffic, the engine sounded like it was revving, but I had absolute no power. Luckily I got enough power eventually to get into the driveway without getting hit. I have had this happen repeatedly in this car.
It has been into the deal once and they said they updated the software but it has started happening again. This is so dangerous. I never know exactly what I'm going to get when I step on the gas. The dual action clutch is awful and I was not informed about it even having this when I bought it. Otherwise, I would not have bought it. Theta II motor seized. No warnings.
