#1580 of 2118 2001 Class Action Suit
May 20, 2004 (3:38 pm)
I received papers filed on behalf of owners of the2001 XG300.The horsepower rage again.Though I
had already agreed to Hyundai to have them give me another year or 12,000 on my warranty,this suit seeks more.Hyundai has agreed to settle by offering a debit card for $100.00 or the option of
$135.00 credit at a Hyundai dealer for parts or service good for two years.They had mistated H.P.
by 10.192 instead of 182,the true horse power for
the '01.The suit was filed in CA,so I don't know who is covered.

If you requested other options they would have paid one month of a vehicle loan or offered another cash equivalent. You accepting a check from Hyundai is what they needed for compensation to their contractual misrepresentation of the horse power. You could have voided the sale all together if you really wanted to fight them on it.
On another note, beside reading how batteries burn out quickly has anyone experience other problems relating back to the electrical system?

How do you back out of a sale after 3 years?I live in hot climate,so
batteries don't last more than a year or so.I now have a Die Hard with 3 year full replacement guarntee,Hyundai does not even offer a comparable one.

When you buy a vehicle you are enterint into a contract. There are 3 basic parts to every contract. 1) Offer 2) Acceptance 3) Condideration.
If a you accept an offer based in incorrectly publish information, that is material misrepresentation and thus you accepted offer is voidable, even if 3 years after the offer was accepted. If one was willing to get a lawyer to fight it out, you could have one. It is the same premise for Lemon Laws. You accepted an offer for a functional vehicle not something that doesn't work.
There is your Business Law 101 lesson for the day.
#1588 of 2118 xg350 brakes

I've driven 2 copies of the 350 and each had brakes that shuddered at times (as did a Kia Amanti I drove). Is this a persistant problem as it may keep me from buying this car that I otherwise like? Would really appreciate responses.

We have 37,000 miles on 2002 XG350L, and have no complaints about the brakes.
By the way, just replaced the original Michelin tires with a set of Bridgestone Turanza LS-H P205/60R16, and indications are that they are going to be outstanding.
