#6 of 15 Starting Issues / Stalling out
Nov 26, 2007 (1:31 pm)
Bought my VC Aug. 1. Have had starting issues as well. The problem is intermittingly...whereas it can take either 3-4 seconds to start or it needs a second time to actually start. My dealer has not been able to "duplicate the problem" and they went as far as saying, "it's normal for it to take two times to start". I have been battling the dealer to acknowledge my issues and I have yet to meet with the Representative. Another issues that I think is related: the vehicle will sometimes literally stall out if it has gas range under 41. This tends to happen when making a turn, after slowing down. This is a HUGE safety for me as my wife and kids tend to use the vehicle.
Any thoughts and/or suggestions out there ?

As far as the stalling with low fuel remaining after a turn and slowing down, Ray Charles could see that's a fuel starvation problem! I'm not saying there isn't a design problem here, but how about keeping a bit more fuel in the car???

Of course, I have been keeping the fuel range with no less than 1/4 tank. Point is, its a NEW car....and I should not have to worry about stalling on an intersection even though there is 40 + miles on the tank left. Ray Charles would be annoyed as well don't you think?

I had the problem with starting and took it to the dealer after making an appointment. They said that there was a recall for a similar problem but my vehicle was not on the list. anyway they would install the item since I had the problem.
After a couple hours they told me that that did not fix the problem and that they would change the fuel pump. Since it would take a day or so to get a pump, they provided a rental. Free. It fixed the problem and I just hope that the new pump is not the same as the original and goes bad again later. All in all, aside from a little inconvenience, I had a good experience at the dealer.

#12 of 15 Veracruz Style

I am having a difficult time deciding if I want a Veracruz or not. Does anyone have an idea when the next redesign might occur? Are most of you out there happy with your Veracruz? What would you say is the biggest flaw with the SUV? I keep reading about Genesis and Veracruz. What is that all about? Is there a chance they may discontinue the Veracruz? I keep my cars 7-8 years and since I drive it that long, I don't want to make a poor decision. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Our 2008 started having varying RPMs at cold start up and poor throttle response when first taking off from idle...it would hesitate some and then go ok.
After reading here and around the web I found - at - http://www.aboutautomobile.com/TSB/2008/Hyundai/Veracruz/Fuel+System
or cold engine rpm fluctuation- tps replacement & ecm update. Some vehicles may experience either slight engine rpm fluctuation at cold warm up or malfunction indicator lamp illuminated with the etc
We took it the dealer and they perfomed that fix of the Throttle position sensor today and ECM update......so far so good it seems to be running much better...hope this fixes it for good.

Sadly, I am still having the problem even after TPS replacement and ECM updates (twice).
