Ok ive sent you some emails, having trouble resizing my videos, But yes my car does exactly the same noise as your videos, that weird even does it when the key is not in the ignition, only the bonnet is up and the drivers door is open.
Yep Lemon Laws need to be in Australia. And also more control needs to be given to Fair Trading and the ACCC. Google ACCC-Hyundai you will see there is a new agreement just put into place February 8th. But still I cant get any answers. Ive asked a trillion times whether this software update is available, but getting no response. Total b...s....t If I can help you avoid what I have gone through it would give absolute great pleasure.
Manual shifting, yeah that was I was told to do, I don't even know how to do this, nor do I want to, I brought a car D=Drive.
I cant get into the other Hyundai Forum but I two posts there, one is Lemon SR Accent, and the other is Surging SR Accent, think that's what I called them, the surging post has everything pretty much on there.
As for comment above about the 7,500 or 6 months service. NO THIS IS FOR DIESEL OR TURBO only. I had another lady with the same car as mine and hers didn't start doing this surging until 30,000 klm!!!! She was told that because she didn't have those services done her warranty was null and void, so I checked it out for her, and I do have it in writing from Hyundai to say no we don't need these ones done. Double check on that for your car please.
Rotten to the core all around, Ive been told; that I drive with my foot on the accelerator and the brake at the same time, I drive on bumpy roads, when I hit a bump my body veers to the left thus causing my right foot to come off the accelerator and this causes the surge, to cruise control at all times (look in your handbook pages 42,44 and 45 Warning do not use cruise control in city or varying speed traffic), My god there has just so many excuses not to fix my car. Been to NCAT case dismissed because I didn't have the written report, Yep that's been thrown in my face and very very nastily at me. Crap all round, the last dealership has on their invoice that they checked my car against 2 new cars in their car yard lot and they did the same thing, so my car was normal
Not Normal,, Not Right, and I will be like the every ready battery, I will keep on going on ha ha.
Gone too far to back out now, and why should I. These cars should not be sold in Australia. And when they see my latest report that I sent you, wont that blow them out of the water !!!!! NO HUMAN ERROR
I am 58 years old, been driving since I was 15, never had this problem, have worked in a dealership for 11 years, never have we done a warranty claim when the car has not been at the dealership. Yet Hyundai tell me that they have amended the warranties and put them correctly into their system. Why would you have to amend warranties for crying out loud. Actually the first one was done after I lodged with Fair Trading and the second was done after I lodged with NCAT. Why would I allow my car to go back to a dealership after lodging with these guys????? Beats me. Yep definitely something fishy here
If you can get onto the other Hyundai Forum and post what you have been through that would be great, mostly American customers on that site, but there is one rude aussie that left a nastyish comment, and I was going to delete them, but I've never lied about anything. So here is a valid point here, take note of any phone calls, comments emails etc etc etc. I have and it looks like I will need them aye. Keep in touch via email.
