2012 HYUNDAI VELOSTER Power Train problems & defects.

HYUNDAI VELOSTER Power Train problems : 11.

While Approaching A Traffic Circle, The Driver Slowed The Car From 30 Mph To About 15 Mph For Traffic Sequencing. When The Accelerator Was Pressed, The Rpm Increased To About 6000, But The Car Did Not Accelerate For 3-5 Seconds, Which Caused Oncoming Cars To Swerve To Avoid A Collision. A Similar Situation Developed Several Weeks Later When Merging From One Freeway Onto Another. Several Mechanics Have Termed This Situation As A “false Neutral,” Where The Computer Controls Attempt To Determine Into Which Gear To Downshift, In Order To Maximize Acceleration Torque. Whatever It Is, Although hyundai Mechanics Say It’s “normal,” I Think It Is Unsafe And The Problem Must Be Addressed. Timely And Reliable Acceleration Should Be A Given In Any New Vehicle. The Vehicle Has A Dual-clutch Transmission, Which The Service Manager At The Dealer Stated Was Susceptible To The Delayed Acceleration, But Was Normal. Updated Ivoq 05/22/12 *tr

Vehicle Downshifts To Fifth Gear When Passing But Does Not Return To Sixth Gear Upon Releasing Accelerator. Vehicle Continues At Same Rate Of Speed When Releasing Accelerator As If It Were On Cruise Control. While Passing An 18 Wheeler On Hwy 169 North, I Noticed That There Was Another 18 Wheeler Approximately 100 Feet In Front Of The One I Was Passing. With An Oncoming Vehicle I Could Not Pass Both Trucks, So I Passed The First One And Pulled In Behind The Other One. When I Let Off The Accelerator, The Car Continued At The Same Rate Of Speed Forcing Me To Slam On The Brakes To Avoid Rear-ending The Other Truck. This Vehicle (and Subsequently Another Vehicle On The Dealership Lot) Exhibits This Characteristic Every Time The Vehicle Goes Into Passing Mode. However, If You Back Off The Accelerator Slightly, After About 5 Seconds, The Car Will Shift Back Into Sixth Gear [but All The While Accelerating]. I Noticed That You Can Manually Shift The Vehicle Back To Sixth By Moving The Shifter To Manual Mode For A Split Second And Then Shifting Back Into “d”. The Engine Rpms Will Fall Back Down Immediately Indicating The Shift. Otherwise, The Vehicle Remains In Fifth Gear Without Decelerating For Approximately 8 Seconds. In My Case, The Car Did Not Do What I “told” It To Do: Decelerate By Releasing The Pedal. I’ve Spoken To hyundai And To The Dealership And Have Filed A Complaint With The Better Business Bureau Because Of This Design Flaw. “control” Is The Key Issue Behind The Wheel Of A Vehicle. If Someone Is Not Expecting The Vehicle To Continue At The Rate Of Speed When They Let Off The Accelerator, They Could Crash Into Someone As I Almost Did. Thank You. *tt

When The Transmission Is Cold At First Start Up And For An Hour Or So, You Put It Into Reverse, The “r” Flashes And The Transmission Will Not Move. This Has Left Me Stranded In A Parking Lot. Also Intermittently At Cold Start, The Transmission Shifts Into Reverse With A Delay, Then Harsh Engagement. Also Intermittently After Driving 1 To 2 Minutes Then Coming To A Stop, You Accelerate And Make A Slow Speed Left Turn, The Transmission Will Not Shift Out Of 1st Gear. *tr

Car Has Stalled While Driving. Sometimes It Will Not Go Into Gear. Other Times It Only Goes Into First Gear. Had To Move It To Neutral Then Back To Drive To Get It To Work. Other Times, Had To Turn It Off Completely And Back On To Get It To Work. This Problem Nearly Got Me In An Accident When It Happened While Entering A Highway. Also, Sometimes In First Gear The Car Will “chugg”. It Will Struggle To Accelerate And Have A Jerking/chugging Feel. After A Couple Visits To hyundai, They Have Failed To Figure Out The Problem. *tr

Purchased Car On 5/5/2012 With 6 Miles On It. Within Less Than A Week And 200 Miles The Transmission Began Clicking. Took It Into hyundai And They Stated It Needed A New Transmission. After 2 1/2 Weeks The Transmission Was Replaced As hyundai Refused To Give Me A Different Car. Since Then The Car Cannot Accelerate, Sounds “clunky” And When Going At Low Speeds Sounds Like The Gear Isn’t Engaging And Sounds/feels Like It Would If You Released A Clutch Too Early. Car Loses power And Sounds Like It’s About To Die. A Hissing And Rattling Sound Under The Hood Happens As Well. After Taking It In To Dealer, Dealer States They Could Not Find The Sounds Or Noises Or Loss Of power I Was Having. Rpms Rev Really High Before Engaging In First Gear. Dealer Still Won’t Do Anything Since They Can’t Diagnose It. I Have Almost Been In Multiple Accidents For Failure Of power And Car Not Accelerating. Takes About 3-5 Seconds Before It Goes. Brakes Grab Too Easily As Well. Loss Of Gas Mileage (around 6-7 Mpg) Was Reported To Dealer But Dealer Told Me It Was Due To “winter Gas.” I Can Understand 2-3 Mpg Difference But 6-7 Is Too Much. Car Has Also Been In The Shop For A Week For The Car Alarm Going Off Constantly For No Reason. A Piece Of The Windshield Plastic Also Fell Off For No Reason When Car Was 3 Weeks Old. Dealer Duct Taped That Part Down Until A New Part Could Be Ordered. *tr

For The 4th Time, My 2012 veloster Literally Shut Off While Being Driven. It Does Not Stall. It Shuts Off Entirely. No Electric. No power. No Nothing. Luckily, This Has Only Happened When Doing Under 15mph Or Stopped At A Light. If This Were To Happen On A Highway Or At High Speeds, It Is Quite Certain That I Would Be In An Accident As There Would Be No Way To Alert Other Motorists That My Vehicle Cannot Be Driven – There Are No Brake Lights Or Anything When It Shuts Off. When It Shuts Off, It Is In Drive. It Cannot Be Put Back Into Park. I Have To Put It Into Neutral To Restart It. It Does Restart Without Hesitation. I Did Take It To My Local Dealer Once And They Were Not Able To Locate Any Problem. I Have Done Research On This And See That hyundai Has The Same Kind Of Problems Most Often With Their Santa Fe Models. I Have Checked To See If There Has Been A Recall For This Issue From hyundai, But So Far They Have Not Addressed This Issue.

My Car Has Been Having A “chugging” Feeling Around 20-40mph For A While Almost Like Engine Is Not Getting Enough Fuel. I Was Stopped At Intersection And Went To Accelerate And Car Died As If I Ran Out Of Gas Or Went Into “limp Mode”. It Would Not Turn Back On And After A Few Min. It Did Start Only For The Same Thing To Happen About A Mile Later. Took It To Be Looked At The Following Day They Found Some Chewed Wires Fixed That. Thought The Problem Was Fixed Then About A Month Later I Was Driving Between 70-75mph On Highway Suddenly Speed Rapidly Decreased To 20mph Was Revving Engine At Over 4k Rpm And Car Would Not Go Over 20mph! After A Few Miles Driving At 20mph Speed Kicked Back In And Got Home Safely. Went To Drive It The Following Day And Car Went Into “limp Mode” While At Stop Light About To Get On The Highway Started Back Up After A Few Min. Took It To Dealrship They Found No Error Codes They Drove It And Could Not Figure Out Anything That Was Wrong. I Do Not Feel Safe Driving This Vehicle Daily During Rush Hour On The Highway! Have Found People With Similar Issues And Same Results Which Is Nothing. Have Looked Up Some Possible Causes Maybe Relating To The Fuel Pressure Sensor, Throttle Position Ssensor, And/or The Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Based On veloster Forum But So Far No Solution To My Problem And Dealrship Wants Me To Continue Driving It.
