Gas tank leak upon delivery. After inspecting the leak, technicians were able to identify the manufacturer had issued repairs on gas tanks that were too thin and as a result, the vehicle we purchased was not properly repaired and leaked fuel.

Santa Fe

My new 2019 Hyundai sante fe from the time I bought it had the yellow check engine light come on. It said the bsm system wasn't working. Then the engine would not start on 4 separate occasions. I had to wait to get it to start. There have been 3 occasions when it did start it sounded like it was going die, very sluggish and didn't want to accelerate. The RPM would not increase. It also started 2 separate occasions it lost steering wheel power and the A/C stopped blowing cold air. I had to turn it off and wait to restart it. It is currently at the dealership waiting for the blind spot monitoring modules. The first time they replaced the module it still showed it not working. So now it is undrivable at gene messer Hyundai in lubbock Texas, they say it's not safe to drive so I am driving a loaner. They say they can't determine why the engine did the described things above. These things happened while in motion and parked.
