#55 of 80 Transmission problems and more
Oct 19, 2011 (6:04 am)
We own a 2005 Tuscon and it has had the first transmission resealed three times then replaced, the second transmission had to be resealed, the oxygen sensor replaced, the power steering pump replaced, after the hoses were replaced for it three times, the rear glass struts replaced, the rear shocks replaced, the tires never get the wear they are rated for, the front defrost for the windshield was never connected and was only fixed after an accident with a deer and they they finally the connection cable and fix it. The passenger seat belt belt locks when it should but won't release afterwards.I do not feel it is reliable transportation. The motor cover has five of its six bolts stripped when the dealership worked on it. It has been a very expensive car to maintain. It has only been to the dealership for repairs and scheduled maintenance. It does handle well but the repair costs have been out of control. I will not buy another Hyundai it will be an American brand.

Too bad you never tried a Japanese product. Have only owned Honda, Acura and Toyota since 1981 and even though some came from Ohio or Canada they were all topnotch. Got snookered on the 2010 Sante Fe since the wife liked it's looks and comfort.
Never thought that basic components like struts, defrosters, transmissions would be a problem in a modern day vehicle.

Same here in NY...wasted a day waiting at the dealership for them to say nothing was wrong...i just had to replace fuel injectors....well its still doing it, a few days ago a new problem- when I use the auto start, about 25% of the time it will shut off after a few seconds....I guess I will call the dealership AGAIN!
I was merging onto a pretty busy highway today when I stepped on the gas and the car wouldn't go...glad there was no one behind me!

Could be but I'm no mechanic.
Choking for gas sounds different from a broken belt though.
Try asking here too:
"No Start" Problems
Gates.com says that both the 4 cylinder and V6 engines are interference, meaning if your timing belt breaks, you may damage the valves or worse. So you may want to try to get that work done soon.

My 2011 Tucson with less than 30k, had the transmission go out. The dealer said there was a leak in a radiator cooling hose. Leak is not accurate. It burst on my way to work and the transmission went out. Has anyone else had this problem? What should I expect from the dealer in terms of repair? How do I ensure there isn't damage to the transmission?

Continuation of my post from Mar.15, 2011. Sorry for the delay.
The trouble was the crankcase position sensor. On JUne 1. 2011, I went to Auto Zone and purchased a new crankcase position sensor for $60.00 minus a 10% do-it-yourself discount otherwise known as a senior discount.
My local mechanic charged me $40 to replace it. He had to take out the radiator first.
I'm sure my local Hyundai dealer would have charged me $150 for the 1-1/2 hour job.
I now have 25, 800 miles on my odometer without any other problem.
I have had no other problems since it was new. I suppose I'm lucky after listening to the problems of people in this forum.
