Families deserve to have a spacious vehicle that provides plenty of safety. Many of today’s owners believed that the 2020 Hyundai Palisade would offer solutions for them. After all, the automaker claims that the SUV has “three rows of upscale style and intelligence.” Yet, research shows that the Palisade provides something completely different. Owners are struggling with excessive noise in the cabin and spontaneous cracks to the windshield.

Problems with the Structure

When it comes to manufacturing a family-friendly vehicle, it’s vital that the structure provides safety. Yet, the body is so poorly built with the Palisade that families are subject to annoying whistling sounds coming from every direction.

One Edmunds review illustrates the point precisely. “I purchased 2 months ago and it’s been at dealership more than it’s been in my driveway, strange noise coming from driver door when ac or defrost is on high and they have tried to fix it by changing door seals and adjustments to door no luck and I’m very disappointed .”

Hyundai isn’t hiding the fact that the cabin isn’t built securely. The trouble is, most of the time, it’s not entirely evident where the noise is coming from. That’s because there are many causes that the automaker discovered as the root cause of the sound. With Service Bulletin #19-BD-010H(1), Hyundai admits that the noise could be coming from a gap located between the A-pillar lower molding area. To fix this, technicians are told to insert a spongy material in the gap. It’s also possible for the noise to come from the lack of contact between the B-pillar glass run and door glass or the outside mirror assembly gasket outside of the A-pillar. Whatever is causing the noise, it’s evident that Hyundai doesn’t know how to make this SUV, which is exhibited by all of the gaps and imperfections. What else is missing that should be in place?

While looking at the structure, it’s critical to look at one more issue that’s prevalent. Hyundai issued a recall, labeled with NHTSA Campaign Number 19V802000 because the side curtain air bags are getting damaged from the mounting bolts. To ensure safety, Hyundai must put a protective covering over the mounting bolts. Otherwise, the air bags might be damaged and can’t protect occupants correctly. Where is the “intelligence” in these designs? It seems the engineers were suffering from a lack of brainpower when designing the Palisade.

Problems with the Visibility

When a driver sits behind the wheel of a 2020 Hyundai Palisade, they expect to see clearly what’s in front of them. The trouble is that this model suffers from windshield cracks that appear out of nowhere.

One NHTSA complaint states, “Less than 2 months into a brand new vehicle, the windshield cracked during a rainstorm on the highway along the line of the wipers. Nothing hit the windshield other than rain. The dealer is making us pay out of pocket for recalibration and tinting, despite the fact we have insurance. Safelite is replacing the windshield. It took 3 weeks to get the windshield. Also, the steering motor had to be replaced in less than 2 months.”

The same problem has been reported with the Kia Telluride, where owners are coming out in the morning to find massive cracks in the windshield. Because of the design, there is a hefty bill associated with windshield replacement, and many customers are not satisfied. The automaker isn’t willing to acknowledge any design issues with the windshield at this time. But, what should scare owners is the fact that the automaker released Service Bulletin #19-BD-012H, which details every step of replacing the rear sunroof glass. This causes owners to ask themselves why Hyundai feels the need to instruct technicians on a job they already know how to perform. While the automaker still holds to the claim that the Palisade is “intelligent,” it’s clear that the engineers and technicians are not.

The alternator suddenly failed. This caused the batter to rapidly deplete and lose all electrical function of the vehicle. Loss of power steering, breaks, lights, instrument cluster and gauges. Basically the vehicle rolled to a stop. Further investigation has shown that this issue is not uncommon on the palisade. A quick google search revealed dozens of people with the same issue. Since it's on several year models of the palisade it points to the alternator. It goes out and the battery cannot support the electronics.

On the 2020 palisade sel premium the blue tooth voice recognition for calling out and siri request only works when the iphone or android phone is connected through the counsel usb. (carplay) when not connected with the usb cord, but connected through the bluetooth to the phone, the phone can receive and call out by touching the screen. Also, phone contacts shown on the screen through the bluetooth can be retrieved by manually panning through the contacts and toughing the contact to be called. When a call is received through the blue tooth, again you have to take your hand off the steering wheel and eyes off the road to find and touch the screen receiver button. The steering wheel phone buttons do work unless again the phone is connected through usb cord / carplay. This is an epic fail for this model hyundai and sets a big question for their advancement into bluetooth technology. Also, I question their concern for driver and pedestrian safety, with the driver taking his eyes off the road and their hand searching the the monitor screen to manually answer or use their phone.

I have only had this car for 1. 5 years and about 6months ago I keep hearing a thump from rear suspension then the alignment started going off pulling to the right. Take it to tire kingdom to be aligned and they told me the shocks are leaking. Go to dealer and they took one week to say one shock is bad but part will take another week to get here I tried to get them to change both as the tsb I found 22-ss-001h but they refuse and will only change one. How can I get them to follow this tsb? As at the moment the car dose not feel safe to drive and I shoul not be responsible for this issue of changing both shocks properly. Dealers should not be able to fight things like this as they avoiusly know thers issues but they won't honor it. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated, otherwise I may have to get lawyers involved. Thank you for you time.

I approached the intersection slowly and stopped completely to turn right. There were a couple of vehicles in front of mine. I pushed the 'auto hold' button while waiting on the red light. A second later, I felt the car moving on its own and stepped on the brakes. The car did not stop and went forward and crashed into the vehicle in front of me. My vehicle did not stop after the initial collision and accelerated more on its own and went forward. I pushed the 'park' button to stop the car but it did not work and the vehicle kept moving forward fast and hit another car. It still kept moving fast until it hit other things. The car stopped after it went through a wire fence and hit a tree. The brake did not work at all. The car never stopped once it started moving on its own. Forward collision warning never came when it was approaching the first vehicle in front of mine on its own. The 'check engine' light was on for 3 days and disappeared on its own about 1 month prior to the accident. I tried to take it to the service center immediately but the earliest appointment I could get was in june. The service adviser at hyundai service said there was nothing that they can do since the warning light was not on when we asked for a service check on 6/11/22.

The roads were icy and my son pulled over to wait out the storm. Our car was parked. Another car slid on the ice and stuck our hyundai palisade in the rear. It was a minor impact, no airbags deployed and nobody was injured. The steering column sheered off and the steering wheel was cut loose from the column. Hyundai has an open recall campaign on a similar model (nhtsa campaign #18v118000) for this exact problem of steering wheels sheering from the column. Hyundai sent an investigator to check the car and reports to me that there is no defect with my car. The insurance company is planning to repair the car, including the steering assembly, and return it to me. It is hard to believe that this incident, which occurred on a car built just a few months after the models that were recalled, could be a coincidence. There was no prior warning. The car is now at body repair shop and is available for inspection.

2020 hyundai palisade purchased in may, 2020, amid covid shutdown, and not driven as much as normal until september, 2020. In february, 2021 was driving along a 4-lane parkway (speed limit 55) and something struck the windshield. All other vehicles were at least 2 car lengths away and the sound of the strike sounded like an insect hitting the windshield. What resulted was a nickel sized, spidery crack on the passenger side, about a third of the way from the top. When safelite attempted to repair this, it immediately spread out as they applied pressure while installing their equipment. Windshield had to be replaced (hyundai glass used). August, 2021 car was being driven on 6-lane interstate (65mph) when a large rock struck the lower part of the passenger side of windshield. Large crack resulted which immediately spread across windshield, necessitating another windshield replacement (3rd party glass used). A week later, on 4-lane highway, while 2+ car lengths behind a semi, it sounded as if the car was being sprayed by sand followed by a loud pop. What resulted was a small crack at the edge of the passenger side which quickly spread horizontally until making an upward turn which slowed its progress. After waiting 6 weeks for a replacement (hyundai glass) to come in, windshield was replaced for 3rd time on 11/2/21. Less than 24 hours later, while driving in traffic on 10-lane section of interstate (60mph), a loud pop occurred resulting in a nickel-sized, spidery chip in about the same location as the first instance. If history holds true, this will probably necessitate another windshield replacement. Having driven all of these same roads for 25+ years, prior to this vehicle, I have only had 2 other windshield chips, both which were repairable. 4 windshield replacements within 9 months is indicative of a design flaw.

On interstate highway in south dakota in september 2020, a small pebble came off the road surface creating a small chip on front windshield. Within one hour the windshield had a crack horizontally covering the entire windshield. This caused a complete one day delay on our vacation trip as the windshield had to be replaced at a local safelite location. Certainly the delay was an inconvenience but more important we are concerned about our safety. This occurred when vehicle was less than 2 months old. Now it is july, 2021 and on another interstate a small pebble came off the road and caused a small chip in the lower left windshield. Next day the small crack started to run requiring a compete windshield repair again. If a small pebble can do this immediate damage, I fear the entire windshield could shatter causing a major accident or at worst a fatality. Safelite and travelers insurance have all documentation regarding the two incidents.

About 1 1/2 hours into a 7 hr trip driving on vacation the car started running rough. Upon slowing the engine shut off several times. The car started knocking and the check engine light came on about 30 min from our destination. We took it to the closest hyundai dealer who informed us the engine needed to be replaced because it had no oil in it. We never had a low oil light or check oil light come on. I had checked the oil life before we left on our trip and knew I had a cushion of several hundred miles before it was due for an oil change. This could have caused all of us in the car since the car shut off and all power was gone.

My tire was losing air so we took it to a local tire shop to be repaired thinking it had a nail in it or something. Turns out it was losing air because the wheel was cracked and slightly bent. The only 2 people who drive this car are my husband and I and neither of us could recall hitting or running over anything. The hyundai dealer refused to submit a warranty claim (car had 16,200 miles on it), so we called hyundai corporate and they submitted a warranty claim that would be assigned to a case manager and they would get back to us. That was 5/24 and by 6/15 we still hadn't heard anything back from them in spite of calling 3 more times to check the status of the case. I believe either this particular wheel was defective or the engineering design of the wheel is wrong. We still have the wheel for inspection. No warning lights other than the low tire pressure warning came on. The dealer inspected the wheel twice and les schwab (tire place) inspected it twice and installed a used ("take-off") wheel for us yesterday. The tire had no damage and there was no damage of any kind anywhere on my car, so I find it hard to believe that we could have hit something so hard to crack the wheel but had no other damage and couldn't remember any such event. The crack is over 1 inch long and absolutely could have caused a blowout or accident, so we weren't able to use the car much for a month except right around our home.

It is extremely difficult to buckle the seatbelt around our childrens' booster seats. We have a six and nine-year-old who are fully capable of buckling their own seats. However, they are unable to buckle in this vehicle due to the limited slack on the buckle and the narrow captains' chairs in the second row. I am barely able to buckle them and often concerned that the clip did not secure properly due to the challenging nature of the process. This is a safety concern because if we were to wreck and it was not secured, my children's lives would be at risk.

The windshield was hit with a pebble at a low speed of around 35mph. There were no other cars within about 3 car lanes, so this was not a high-impact situation. However, the pebble cracked still cracked the windshield. The dealers confirmed that this model vehicle has a high incidence of cracked windshields that could potentially lead to injury or harm. I am worried that a truly high-impact rock would be life-threatening to the passengers.

Just purchased this vehicle yesterday. Took it for a test drive two days earlier and noticed very strong interior odor, such a carpet cleaner or disinfectant, which we assumed was from dealership trying to clean, but other cars we test drove did not have this smell. Both my us and and I came home that afternoon with a strong headache that lasted all night. We assumed it was from stress and car shopping's. We still decided to purchase the car, assuming it was still just a disinfectant and would go away. Brought home, opened all doors and windows and back hatch to air out. Sprayed with natural air freshener all over carpets and floors. After one night of sitting closed inside the garage, opened up the doors to find the smell is getting stronger and more intense. Opened the windows to let air out and sprayed carpets again. Today, an article was released that thousands of other hyundai palisade owners are complaining of the same issue, and is tied to the higher end models and nappa leather seat, which we have. We now have learned that hyundai has been made aware of this issue and are not responding. We are sad to find out that our 1 day old car (to us) has such a widespread problem that we were not aware of and cannot stand. We are concerned about the materials and products used to build this high end vehicle and it's affects on our health. I am very sensitive to smell amd have complained of this awful scent since we first sat in the car. Now that we know this may not be something that will just air out and may be an inherent problem directly from hyundai, we want action. This may be the real reason why the previous owner turned it in. It is awful and I don't feel comfortable sitting myself or my family in our newly purchased vehicle. We feel hyundai should replace or repair this problem with a recall!

Vehicle exactly 1 year old with full warranty, was driving down road with no vehicles in front of me and sunroof exploded. It sounded like a shot gun went off inside the vehicle and glass pieces came down all over me and my wife. This appears to be a common issue with previous hyunda santa fe and tuscon models and the dealer claims a rock peck caused this and that is simply not true. Its been a terrible battle with the local dealership and they are asking me to file a comprehensive claim with insurance company however I dont feel I should be responsible simply because this has happened to so many people, even people who own the new 2020 palisade. Its more common on dual sunroofs but we have the single sunroom and I promise, it was a very scary situation that we dont want to experience ever again. We have been proud hyundai owners over the past 8 years and if they elect not to help us with this issue of repairs, unfortunately we will trade the vehicle and never purchase hyundai again.

The first two times I was unsuccessful and it was very difficult to see. The wipers were working when I left my house and became disabled as I was driving. The weather was a mix of sleet, rain and snow but with minimal buildup that would've caused the wipers to be disabled. I had no warning or visibility and an accident could have easily occurred.

The very next day, another pebble hit while driving on the feeder road and a second crack formed and did the exact same thing. The tiny ping of a pebble caused 2 large cracks that are now affecting visibility while driving. After researching, we see there is a class action lawsuit against hyundai for their faulty and weak windshields and hundreds of complaints online about the inability for the windshield to take any tiny impact. We also know kia, their sister company is replacing windshields on the telluride for the bad windshields. Hyundai has yet to acknowledge the windshield is not reacting appropriately to small pebbles.

Approximately 6,000 miles in, my windshield developed a crack approximately 5" long from the camera housing down. I do not recall a rock strike event happening, and I am the sole driver of the car. I just had the windshield replaced today, and before the glue was dry two cracks appeared spontaneously without having the car in motion, on mirrored sides of the windshield. Over the past six hours that my car has been in the garage, one crack has grown by at least 2". It seems there is something structurally unsound about the shape of the windshield with pressure cracks seeming to occur spontaneously.

We have had two incidents with our windshield since owning it brand new for only 8 months. The first incident was while we were driving on interstate-95 and a small rock hit the windshield causing a small chip to the driver-side bottom corner that spidered quickly but was small enough to be fixed and sealed. The second incident was also while we were driving, this time on interstate-81, and a small rock hit the center middle of the windshield and quickly spread as a crack nearly 2-feet long and angled. This crack could not be repaired and the windshield needed to be replaced.

Windshield cracked at just 400 miles while ironically the car was at a detail shop and they were installing exoshield that is supposed to prevent rock chips and cracks. The windshield shattered in the lower right corner way down by the hood area while the installer was re-attaching the trim around the glass and popping the clips back in. This is not normal for glass to crack like this from normal activity especially when it wasn't even hit. The glass shouldn't break from touching it, cleaning it, etc. Also, on day 1 right after buying the car while I was driving back from the dealer something hit it and caused a small rock chip which I repaired myself. Never had this occur on day 1. That is why I was willing to pay for protection field to avoid this. Unacceptable.

During a heavy rain storm went through a low lying area at low speed (25 mph) where several inches of water had ponded. The fca system slammed on the brakes temporarily even though there was no known obstacle. My guess is that the fca sensed the water as an obstacle causing the brakes to be incorrectly applied. Had someone been behind me, it could have caused an accident. The fca sensors are on the very bottom of the front so it is possible that the sensors were momentarily submerged.

About a month after buying the vehicle, with less than 900 miles, a large crack developed behind the mirror of the windshield that was noticed while the vehicle was parked. We had not been hit by anything noticeable or audible, and by the time we were able to see the crack the windshield was ruined. We noticed a very small blemish in the dark area near the mirror that may have caused the crack. Our local dealer was not willing to address the windshield issue so we took it to another dealership, while on vacation, by request of hyundai of north america. The second dealership saw the blemish and said it could not be replaced by warranty. I escalated the case through hyundai of north america and they could do nothing else since the dealer said it cannot be covered under warranty. So, if this windshield can be ruined from an insignificant blemish, there is something wrong with the windshield.

The windshield on this vehicle is defective in that any minuscule impact has the potential to completely crack it. I have now had two windshields replaced within the last 5 months for presumed impacts that were not even perceptible from within the vehicle. I'm not even certain if the cracks were impact related at all. I purchased the vehicle new and have yet to own it for a year. The windshield on these vehicles seems to literally be susceptible to high speed grains of sand. My first crack completely blocked my field of vision and made the vehicle unsafe to drive. I have other vehicles that are over 10 years old for which I have had no issues with the windshield, and are still driven on the same roads as this 2020 palisade navigates. This is no coincidence, something is wrong with these windshields and someone is going to get hurt unless this is thoroughly reviewed and investigated. *tr

After discussion with many palisade owners on a facebook owners forum, other owners are experiencing similar issues with cracked windshields from nominal pebble strikes.

I had my 8 year old triplets in the vehicle on 3/07/2020, and we were driving in town to the local restaurant. Children, being inquisitive, were inspecting every feature of the vehicle within their reach. One pressed the button and we heard the electronic release, unsure of what the sound was at the time, I did an inspection later and realized it was the walk through latch. I then ran a few circumstantial experiments with my adult son to test my concern that this feature might cause harm if activated at the wrong time. My concerns were confirmed with this test. My adult son in the seat, pressed the button while I was driving 5 miles per hour, and then I applied the brakes.

'check blind spot collison warning system' error message appears every trip after 10-15 minutes. My palisade also steers toward the center lane and does not stay in the middle of the lane as intended. I feel very unsafe being so close to oncoming traffic, and it causes arm fatigue to keep steering away from the center. Finally, there is a great deal of wind noise coming through the driver's side window/door as I drive at medium to high speeds.

We purchased our 2020 hyundai palisade limited six weeks ago. Currently has 3000 miles. The blind spot collision warning system (bscw) has a malfunction and stops working after driving a few miles on both highway and city/country roads. There are no cars or trees/obstacles around the car when it deactivates. Restarting the car resets the bscw system, but it malfunctions again in a few miles. When the system is deactivated, we cannot turn off blind spot active assist--it gives a controller error. We tried shutting off the bscw system indicator in the heads-up display. That does not fix the problem

There is a very loud whistling noise at the drivers door when driving at highway speeds with a right to left crosswind. I discovered this on a 2000 mile trip I took recently, and my ears are still ringing two weeks later. I may have hearing loss.

Received a postcard from my hyundai dealer stating to call the dealership about a factory recall. Called the dealership and was informed of an airbag problem so I made an appointment for repairs. Service writer at the dealership informed me the recall concerned replacing side curtain airbags. I checked this nhtsa website and there is nothing concerning a recall for airbags.

There are two complaints... 1. Within two weeks of purchasing the vehicle, a crack developed in the middle of the windshield, just below the rear-view mirror mount. Per the dealership recommendation we went to safelite for an opinion about the cause, since we had no memory of anything hitting the windshield, and the safelite manager provided a written opinion (via email) that there was no evidence of impact, and it was his opinion that there was a defect in the glass. Hyundai corporate stated that since we could not prove a defect existed, it would not be covered by warranty. 2. Similar to several other complaints, there is a loud vibration that eminates from the driver side window/door whenever the vehicle reaches 50mph or higher. Usually a decrease in speed mitigates the noise, but if can be rather deafening while driving on the highway.

While in motion on a highway a very small foreign object hit the lower side of the windshield in front of the driver. The sound of the hit was barely audible so the object had to be very small. I don't see how such a small object could break a windshield on a 2 week old vehicle

Less than 2 months into a brand new vehicle, the windshield cracked during a rainstorm on the highway along the line of the wipers. Nothing hit the windshield other than rain. The dealer is making us pay out of pocket for recalibration and tinting, despite the fact we have insurance. Safelite is replacing the windshield. It took 3 weeks to get the windshield. Also, the steering motor had to be replaced in less than 2 months.

Purchased vehicle and when we drove it at highway speeds (64-75) there was a severe vibration with low frequency rumbling (sounded as though driving on rumble strip). If we drove above 75 the vibration would lessen. We brought in into the dealer and on the first visit they first balanced tires, no change noticed although they gave us the vehicle back. Second visit they replaced rear tires and force balanced all tires, no change. Then they replaced front tires and replaced the rear drive shaft after having told us two weeks prior that they had measured the first one and it was within hyundai specs. The replacing of the drive shaft improved the low frequency vibration but did not completely eliminate it. We are currently waiting to hear back from hyundai corporate for a buy back.

Since purchasing my palisade, ive felt constant vibrating coming from the gas pedal while driving. It seems to have gotten progressively worse and now feeling vibrating in the steering wheel and brake pedal. There is no vibrating while stationary.

    I bought a 2020 Palisade and have had no problems (50K). Your writeup sounds like it was done by a Chev. / Ford executive. I have heard of the noise problem, but I have not experienced. Great car for me and a lot of car for the money. Bottom line some windshields crack, some have noise, some sky glass crack. Percent’s would be interesting. I only know my car has been great.
