problem #3

Sonata GLS 2.4L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 89,477 miles

Out of the blue my car overheated while in neutral and I was chatting outside the car. 15 mins goes by and my rad fan wasn't working. I turned the A/C trying to force the fan on and it didn't work. A new resistor fixed the problem for a week before my A/C went out and my car overheated again which I will submit a new complaint for as it was a different fix.

Sonata GLS 2.4L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 144,000 miles

So after my car overheated the first time, the resistor being replaced seem to fix it. That lasted a week until my A/C stopped working. I only drove it twice as my daughter was far too hot in stop and go traffic at 7 months old to be with no A/C. Only the 2nd drive, my car overheats AGAIN! So now it's not driveable. My third party warranty company somehow gets it covered, but the parts would have been $660CAD before labour to have the entire electrical system on my cooling assy replaced.

This car is nothing but problems!!
