problem #1

Sonata GLS 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,980 miles

This car is idling funny. It's now in the dealership service dept. waiting to be looked over.

I have had this car for over a year, never had an issue. The car idles low and almost dies. The rpm's drop well below 500 when idling, not normal of course, she normally idles around 900ish. When it drops below 500 it acts like it's dying. Sometimes I'll be stopped and it'll be at 900ish and go up rapidly and fall well below 500. It hesitates when I give it gas, and it's been doing this for about a week now.

I know Hyundai doesn't own it's dealerships, but the one I'm stuck with currently is rated D by the BBB. I'm scared my issues won't be resolved before warranty expires.
