problem #1

May 152014

Sonata GLS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

There would be a delay/hesitation when I push the gas pedal before the car would accelerate. Seemed to be the worst in the first few minutes of starting up and when accelerating while turning sharply (turning out of my driveway in the morning). This problem got worse and worse until it was dangerous to drive in traffic. I went to the dealer and they said it was the throttle position sensor. They replaced it under warranty (barely). It has been fine for a couple years, but lately I am starting to get the slightest hint of hesitation again when pulling out of my driveway.... worried this will be a recurring problem. Not under warranty any more.
