#172 of 188 New Hybrid Multi-ECU Update
Jul 02, 2013 (7:14 am)
Here's what all of us 2011-2012 Sonata Hybrid owner's have been waiting for:
HEV MULTI-ECU UPDATE – VERSION 2
This bulletin provides information related to a software update of the following controllers: ECM/TCM/HCU/MCU/AHB/OPU by GDS Event#302, and BMS by Event#303.
This ECU Update will refine vehicle drivability, HEV transaxle shifts, and cruise control.
Applicable Vehicles: 2011-2012MY SONATA (YF) 2.4L Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)
In order to get this you need to complaign about hesitation and jerking situations. HSH owners who have had this done report Hyundai has fixed their problems.
This TSB will make your hybrid's acceleration much smoother, especially during the cold first start up of the day.
You must complain to your dealer about the jerkiness and hesitation in order for them to install this repair. It personally has helped me and many others with drivability issues.

Just want to bump this for all 2011-2012 Sonata Hybrid owners who have not had the latest TSB 13-FL-004 performed. It enhances drivability and stops the cold start jerkiness and hesitation.
You have to actually complain about those symptoms to the dealer to have this installed, as it is not a recall, but a TSB.

I'm glad it helped you. Hopefully many more hybrid owners will see this and get the TSB installed on their cars. It makes a world of difference.

#181 of 188 New TSB For Sunroof Noise
Sep 02, 2013 (5:03 pm)
DESCRIPTION: On some 2012~2013 Sonata (YF) and 2012 Sonata Hybrid (YF-HEV) vehicles with panoramic sunroof, a slight creaking or rattle noise in the roof may be heard. If the source of the noise is around the roof area on top of the B-pillar, follow the procedure outlined in this bulletin to eliminate the noise.
This basically uses "acoustic felt" and Loctite to secure the sunroof cross-members to stop the creaking.
