Problems with the Lane Departure System

Today’s modern safety systems are designed to protect drivers. However, Hyundai seems to have dropped the ball with the basic lane departure technology.

One NHTSA complaint says, “After replacing the OEM summer tires to Continental DWS, the Blind spot detection system is malfunctioning always saying there is a car in my blind spot when there is no car there. Same tire size as OEM was put on my OEM Rims. My car has less than 1000 miles right now, brand new bought it with 11 miles and was working fine. Nothing has been changed other than tires. Hasn’t been in an accident, Windshield is spotless. Nothing has hit my rear bumper. I don’t know why and neither do dealerships why my BSD is triggering falsely with just a tire change. Please Help.”

Aside from the issues occurring when customers change the tires, there are also concerns with vibrations. Service Bulletin #20-SS-004H states that wheel and tire balancing must occur to stop the vibrations. In the meantime, drivers can “own the corners” while feeling a shaking and vibrating sensation that seems unnatural. Talk about a thrilling ride.

Problems with the Vehicle Structure

A quick look at how the Hyundai Veloster was built shows that there are bigger issues to deal with. The structure doesn’t seem to be well-thought-out.

In fact, the Edmunds editors say, “long driver’s door can make tight parking spots awkward.”

Sadly, Hyundai doesn’t seem to have paid close attention to any component that was put into the Veloster, including the vital engine. In fact, looking back at 2021 models, it’s easy to see the problems that are coming down the pipeline with the 2022 lineup. NHTSA Campaign Number #21V301000 says that models with affected engines may not have properly treated piston oil rings. Because of this oversight, stalling and engine damage can occur.

Additionally, if there is an oil leak on the hot exhaust, a car fire could occur. Of course, this isn’t the first time that Hyundai has been facing lawsuits because of engine fires, so the company is probably used to it by now. At this point, it might be best for customers to trade in the thrill of the Veloster with something that isn’t trying to kill them.
