I have purchased a 2013 Hyundai Tucson Limited and it now has 4000 miles on it.
Yesterday while making a left hand turn the same thing happend to me.
I almost got broadsided by oncoming traffic. The same thing happend to me this morning.
I haven't brought the car into the dealer yet and I hesitate to give it to them if they keep it for a week and then tell me than can find nothing wrong with the car.
I also have a 2009 Hyundai Sonata with 30000 miles and have not had any problems.
I am about to get rid of the car and buy a different make and model.
Any info will be appreciated.

I found my answer and maybe this will help you. Many years ago I worked in Northern NJ but lived in South jersey. During the summer I would be in bumper to bumper taffic for hours so I started driving with 2 feet, I still drive with 2 feet. I read somewhere on these Edmunds blog that if you hit the gas and brake at the same time...even for a second...the engine will "almost" stall.
So I focused on that and sure enough the problem went away.
Maybe this will help you.

I read the same item about pressing the brake while pressing the the accelerator. The article I read states that Hyundai put in a switch on the break pedal to cut off gas supply to the engine if you press the break while accelerating. Has to do with the problem Toyota had with run away cars.
I read that the feds will be making this manditory on all cars.
Hyundai just beat them to it.
I don't understand why Hyundai doesn't make this info available to there dealerships so they can pass it on to their customers.
It could save someones life.
By the way, I started driving with one foot and the problem went away.
Thanks again for your reply.

Just drove my 2011 sonata off the lot 4 days ago, purchased used with 77K on the odometer, no problems until I filled the tank and drove 500ft and parked and shut down the engine waiting for my brother for 5mins. Tried to start and the starter did as it should but the engine just sputtered enough to disengage the started just reaching 1K on the tack. Tried many many times and same response. Still sitting on Kroger parking lot. Any one else have a similar problem?
