2013 Hyundai Sonata - 5NPEB4ACDH5 - Engine Problems

VIN: 5NPEB4ACDH5
Location: Cuyahoga Falls, OH
Miles: 1533
Date Reported: August 29th, 2012


Description of Problem

Purchased 2013 hyundai sonata gls at streetboro ohio hyundai dealer new in mid june 2012. Vehicle seemed ok but at about 1500 miles idle became rough particularly at idle in drive at lights and stops. Took in to dealer and was told after 4 days in shop that problem was familiar to the dealer and an engineer was being called in to figure out the solution as no codes were stored in computer. I left the dealer after being told sonata is within hyundai specs but was running strange. The dealer seems to be avoiding doing anything to admit there is a issue and refused to allow a service tech to ride along with me to experience the problem. They also refused to let my salesman go in a newer model with me to see if any other vehicles had same issues. I wrote to hyundai corporate and was given a list of other dealers to go to. As the problem has begun to get worse the idle will now rev and then decellerate the vehicle when coasting and i can imagine what this braking action will cause the vehicle to do as the weather becomes worse and snow appears. This seems to be a growing problem with the hyundai models from the recent hyundai forums posts.
