I'm not familiar with your state's lemon law so you should examine it and take full advantage of it. I have done so under MA lemon law in the past and found it to be equitable. Likely you will get a new car and have to pay a use charge for mileage on your current car. Bring it back for the third time.

I have a 2011 elantra that has stranded me 3 times this week. Wont start !!!! Had it towed to dealer today and it started up fine and they said nothing is wrong with it and no error codes. Called hyundai and they gave me a case number said on third visit to dealer if they cant fix it they will escalate the case. Just looked on You Tube and there is video of the elantra not starting. Has anybody found out what the problem is?

My 2012 GLS just did this for the first time at 27,000 km. Huge cloud of white smoke during downshift & acceleration. Oil level is correct, no engine fault codes but I can see that the coolant expansion bottle is empty (the radiator is still full).
Have booked the car in to a local dealer for inspection but I am not comfortable with their initial responses.
I suspect a cylinder head gasket problem or worse.
Although it's too early yet, I'd like to understand the root cause of this problem so that the correct long term solution is applied.

Just had my 2011 elantra in to dealer again for starting issues. This time they said a code was in system saying transmission relay switch needs to be replaced. Dealer ordered part. I sure hope this is the problem and that its fixed once and for all. They told me its a relay to the starter and it might show its in a different gear when infact its in park and that would cause the car to not start. Ill update as soon as i can...
