Hyundai is a South Korean automaker which has been producing some of the world’s most popular vehicles for over 50 years. The company has been able to build a reputation for producing high-quality and affordable cars which can last for many years with proper maintenance and care. However, like any other car manufacturer, there are bound to be issues with certain models at different times.
If you own a Hyundai vehicle which needs repairs or services, we invite you to bring it to our Fremont Foreign Auto shop today. We specialize in diagnosing and repairing all kinds of Hyundai problems so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.
Here are some of the most common issues we see when working with Hyundai owners:
- Electrical issues
Hyundai’s electrical systems are known for failing prematurely due to poor quality wiring and connectors. If your car has been in an accident or has been sitting idle for an extended period of time, this can cause corrosion in the wires and connectors, leading to electrical failure.
This is especially true if you live near salt water or snow and ice during winter months. The best way to avoid electrical issues is to keep your car properly maintained by performing routine fluid checks and safety inspections regularly.
- Accelerator pedal issues
Hyundai vehicles often experience problems with their accelerator pedals. This can be a problem because it makes it difficult for drivers to accelerate quickly when needed. Accelerator pedals can also become stuck in place or break altogether. If this happens to you, come to our auto shop. Our technicians will be able to identify and fix any problems with your accelerator pedal so that you can get back on the road safely and quickly.
- Gauge and sensor failure
Gauges are used to read information about your car’s performance and health. Sometimes these fail and do not work properly, which can result in some serious issues with your vehicle’s performance overall. This could include malfunctions with the anti-lock braking system (ABS) or even lights not working correctly when they should be on at night time driving conditions.
- Engine seizing
This typically occurs when one or more components fail because of excessive wear or poor maintenance by the owner. The best way to prevent this from happening is through regular oil changes and filter replacements, as well as keeping up with routine maintenance tasks, such as replacing spark plugs and making sure everything is running smoothly.
- Steering and handling
One of the most common issues we see with Hyundai vehicles is poor steering performance. Most of them have electric power steering. This system can become damaged over time and cause your vehicle’s steering to feel “loose” or “wobbly.”
In some cases, this problem could indicate an issue with other parts of your vehicle such as an alignment issue or worn tires. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, bring your car so our technicians can diagnose it properly.
- Self-healing paint issues
Hyundai uses a special type of paint called “self-healing” paint that can repair itself when scratched or damaged. However, this feature only works if the paint is applied correctly in the first place; otherwise, you’ll end up with permanent scratches on your car’s finish.
At Fremont Foreign Auto, we understand that no one likes to spend money on car repairs. That’s why we offer a wide range of affordable Hyundai repair services to help keep your vehicle running smoothly.
