#168 of 177 Extended Warranty for 2007 Veracruz LTD.
Jul 08, 2012 (3:29 pm)
I am taking possession of a 2007 w/64500 miles. Am looking for an extended warranty for it and hopefully alot of the "bugs" identified in this forum will have already been addressed. How do I find a service record for this car as far as dealer-type repairs listed here?

Our 20011 Veracruz has the closed transmission fluid system... no dipstick. Yet if used in severe conditions dealership recommends a fluid change every 30k miles. I guess they do this by using the trans cooler line, which is probably a safer way to change fluid than a flush? How often have you guys changed your fluid?
#172 of 177 Warning: Plastic parts on engine can break during routine oil change
Oct 10, 2012 (8:14 pm)
If you are considering purchasing this car, understand that on some models the oil filter is attached to the engine with a plastic piece that can break on a single oil change! The repair cost is over $300 and NOT covered by warranty.
I have raised this issue with Hyundai and they recognized the issue (LA BBB Complaint ID: 98720693 ). It appears that they don't care about it.
Also, it doesn't matter if you have it serviced at the dealer, they will claim that any work done by an outside vendors caused the issue.

My 2008 Veracruz alternator went out at appx 38,000 due to an oil gasket leak, and it was replaced via warranty. Currently at around 69,900 miles and some other gasket has leaked a few times but were all fixed under warranty.
#175 of 177 Brake/ABS issues
Dec 01, 2012 (7:53 am)
Ok..im sooo frustrated. Ive taken my 2008 veracruz to 4 different mechanics to have it looked at. The brake pedal will give out and sink , make a lil clicking sound and then recover. All 4 mechanics have checked the brakes and determined they are fine, no leaks, and not time to change them yet. ALL 4 said they could only guess it was the master cylinder going out. I finally get enough money together to buy the part and cover the labor (550+)...almost get home..stop at a store...come back out turn on car..and while sittin in same spot-brake pedal does it again...only this time...it 'shows on dashboard - ABS and Brakes. I turn it off and contemplate if i should drive it...turn it on and no lights on dashboard.
Seriously...isnt this something at least ONE of the mechanics should have looked for? and what is it?..why all these issues with a 2008...the car just is not that old...anyone else had this issue..and what did you do to get it fixed. Mind you...the 5 year/60k warranty doesnt apply cuz although not 5 years yet...car has 69k miles.
help, frustrated woman over here.

Your car should have thrown a code in computer when dashboard light came on. So this should help pinpoint the problem.
I would probably take it to a Hyundai dealership. If by mechanic you mean someone like Mieneke, then they probably arent experienced enough to properly diagnoise.

Looking for Filters on my 2010 Diesel Veracruz. I am in Panama and the dealer wants $398. for a oil change with filter service...That is NUTS! I am trying to find the Filters for oil, fuel, air etc. for this SUV. Does anyone know where to purchase these items on line? The dealer hit me for $48.00 for the fuel filter and did not have the oil filter but, quoted a price of $28.00.... They really rip off you off here as U.S. person. NEED HELP finding the parts.
