Around Sept. 2017, while in motion on city street. Vehicle's 2 warning lights turned on, 1st was check engine, then not long after that oil warning lights. Luckily I wasn┐T to far from home that the vehicle didn┐T stop running and made it home. So when I got home I told my husband about it. Before checking engine compartment he noticed oil dripping and coolant dripping under the car down to the ground. And it was a lot of spillage that it empty both oil and coolant from car. He opened hood engine compartment to check the level of oil and find's it was low of oil. At the same time he noticed oil leakage coming from the valve cover section, leaking down to alternator and covered with oil. After that he visually checked the radiator and there was no coolant, it was empty. So since then I never ran the car or was out of service. I was too busy back then and no money to get it fix. Luckily I have another car to get around with. So just recently, a friend mentioned to go online and checked to see if any recall for this vehicle's problem or make a complain. Hopefully it's a manufacture's problem and will like a respond, so I can get this car rolling again.

Veracruz 4WD 6-cyl

ABS and ESC lights are on. Was told it was a ABS sensor/hydraulic issue. The part is $2500 the dealer says. I found several other complains online about 2008 Veracruz having this issue. The car only has 50,000 miles on it.

The ABS light, ESC light, traction control light and AWD light all illuminated. The dealership tried twice to diagnose the problem, but could not locate any codes for it. The third time the issue arose, the dealer decided that there is an issue with the ABS sensor. The vehicle is a 2008 Veracruz purchased in May 2009. I was told that the vehicle was just past the warranty period and that Hyundai would not cover this item. It appears that this is becoming a common problem with this vehicle, as there have been at least 15 complaints on the NHTSA site and many more listed in the Hyundai forums online. Please investigate this issue and see if a recall is warranted. Thank you.
