Genesis Key Numbers
Hyundai has proposed a settlement that would offer owners extended coverage in case their sunroofs explode.
If approved, the settlement would double the existing sunroof warranty, reimburse certain previously-paid expenses, and even offer cash to those that decide to sell their car within the next 90 days.keep reading article "Hyundai Has Offered to Settle an Expoding Sunroof Lawsuit Settlement And It’s Good News for Owners"
Hyundai, along with 19 other manufacturers, has agreed to a voluntary program to equip all new passenger vehicles with automated emergency braking (AEB) technology by September 1, 2020.
AEB was found to reduce rear-end crashes by 39% during research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Automatic emergency braking uses a combination of radar, lidar (reflected laser light) and cameras for a forward collision warning system that gives a driver audio or visual warnings that a forward collision is near.…keep reading article "Is Hyundai Falling Behind in AEB Technology?"
Hyundai’s “smart trunk” is supposed to open all the way without using keys or pushing any buttons.
However, a lawsuit alleges that while the trunk unlatches, it never really works as advertised.
Hyundai has marketed the Smart Trunk as a feature that automatically opens the trunk fully, or at least enough for a person to put large items into the trunk. But according to the lawsuit, the trunks are defective because they fail to open more than a few inches, or sometimes not more than a small crack.
I never saw the appeal in this feature, especially given its $950-$1,900 price.keep reading article "Lawsuit Says Hyundai’s Smart Trunk is Really Kind of Stupid"
Hyundai is recalling 161,000 cars for issues with parking brake switch issues.
According to Hyundai, the warning light used to indicate when the parking brake is applied may not illuminate due to corrosion of the parking brake switch. This could cause a driver to possibly leave the parking brake engaged while trying to drive the car.
The affected cars are from the 2015 and 2016 model years.keep reading article "Over 160,000 Sonata and Genesis Cars Recalled with Corroded Parking Brake Switches"
Hyundai’s motion to dismiss panoramic sunroof lawsuit was denied, at least partially.
Hyundai filed to dismiss the shattering sunroof lawsuit and the judge agreed to dismiss almost all the lawsuit except claims based on fraud…
The judge said the plaintiffs can move forward based on claims of fraud and can amend the complaint if they want the judge to reconsider violations of consumer protection laws and unjust enrichment.
The lawsuit Billy Glenn v. Hyundai Motor America et al. still has life, but it’s up to the plaintiffs now if they want class-action certification.keep reading article "Panoramic Sunroof Class-Action Squeaks Past Hyundai’s Motion to Dismiss"
ndai has been sued because their sunroofs can explode without being struck by an object.
Plaintiff Billy Glenn filed the exploding sunroof lawsuit after the glass in his 2014 Santa Fe Sport exploded just months after purchasing the Hyundai. The sunroof was replaced, but Glenn claims the replacement sunroof also shattered and sent glass into the vehicle.
This is a Hyundai-only lawsuit, but not a Hyundai-only problem. Glass is heavy, temperamental, and doesn’t bend when you go over potholes. So until automakers stop replacing their roofs with glass, I don't see this problem going away.keep reading article "Hyundai Sued Because Their Sunroofs Can Suddenly Make it Rain Glass"
Hyundai and Kia are being forced to update their fuel economy estimate labels for unsold cars on dealer lots by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The EPA said Hyundai and Kia will lower their fuel economy (mpg) estimates for the majority of their model year 2012 and 2013 models after EPA testing found discrepancies between agency results and data submitted by the company.…
