How long should I wait for a software update to correct the surging in my 2016 Hyundai Accent?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Mar 2018

Has Hyundai agreed to supply a software update? If they have I would think they would be able to supply it within a few weeks at most; if they haven’t you need to negotiate with them to come to an arrangement that satisfies your complaint.

2016 Hyundai Accent electrical fault

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2018

Being so new the car should still be under warranty, so I would take it back to the Hyundai dealer you bought it from and ask that they run a diagnostic check on it. If that fails to show up anything wrong, ask the dealer to call in Hyundai’s service representative for help.

Surging problem in a '16 Hyundai Accent

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Nov 2017

You have clearly been given the run-around by whoever told you that. Talk to your dealer, and ask for a mechanic to go for a ride with you to observe what it is that is bothering you. That way they might be able to understand your complaint and fix it for you. If you feel very strongly about it, ask for a Hyundai technician to go with you.

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Nov 2016

Right now you're stuck in no-man's land. You believe there's a problem, the mechanics at the dealers you've gone to say there isn't. You need a third opinion, this time from an independent mechanic.

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Sep 2016

Your car is still in warranty, so you should be talking to your dealer about the problem and what is causing it. If they cannot give you a satisfactory explanation talk to Hyundai's customer service people (1800 186 306). You could also talk to an auto electrician about the problem.

Best small car for city driving?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jun 2016

You're not alone feeling the stress of choosing a new car. Toyota's Yaris is the safe choice but you should test drive the Suzuki Swift, since it also gets The Tick. Bargain hard on your favourite.

Mercedes-Benz C200 2011: Should I downgrade now it has developed electrical problems?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Jun 2016

Electrical problems can quickly become costly but you will notice a big step down in comfort and class if you downgrade to a Hyundai. It's a sensible move on the budget front but make sure you understand the implications — take a long test drive in the Accent before you commit.

Price differences for Toyota and Hyundai parts

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Dec 2015

We're not about to defend the car companies but do the import prices include the same fees and taxes a factory operation charges, or the warehousing costs? Also, the much higher volumes in the giant US market allows companies to keep their margins down.
