Hyundai Coupe 04 FAULT
Hyundai not just a badge, also a crap car and service.
If possible you need to make all your readers aware of this possible fault with the Hyundai coupe, my car is a 2L se and is 04 reg, it was bought brand new and driven off the forecourt of our local Hyundai dealer in Rushden, N'hants.
The vehicle was returned to the Hyundai garage for a few minor repairs and then returned to us on Tuesday 27 Sept 05, the car was reversed onto our drive and the cars engine turned off, the vehicle handbrake fully applied, my drive is on a very very slight slope, the dealer came to the door and my wife went out to inspect the car, after about 2 minutes of looking around the car (with no movement) there was a loud bang from the car and the car shot back towards our house at a speed as if the car was being reversed, the car travelled straight through our garage door of which was double locked and scraped down the wall taking the delivery guy with it causing him grazing to his arms.
Hyundai sent out engineer to look at the car and the site who stated that "there was a fault with the vehcile and it wasent driver error" we are lucky that the dealer was here when this happened (and almost got run over trying to stop the car).
Please advise your readers to contact their dealer and get their vehicles checked immediately, this was not a case of the handbrake not being applied correctly but a fault that may cost a lot of money, the garage have taken the car back and have been able to recreate the problem by applying the handbrake and pushing it at an angle thus releasing the handbrake, the cable has not snapped but Hyundai are trying to hush this up and from admitting that there was a fault now say the handbrake may of worn out after 1 years of use as it may not have been used correctly!!!
it's lucky that my wife and 4 month old son were not stood behind the vehicle at the time, Hyundai are trying to get a hold on the UK car sales with their latest TV ad compains but are selling death traps!
