Wanted to catch your attention so I started a new thread. Did you see the
reponse I posted regarding the engine whine?? Is this a logical
explanation. My dealer told me that was what Hyundai Engineers said but I
wanted to make sure they were being straight up with me.
The answer they got was that Hyundai knows of the engine whine and that it
is a deign flaw with the Variable Intake Manifold
I have received several phone calls from Hyundai and have actually been
encouraged to look into filing Lemon Law papers for Hyundai to re-purchase
my car or to go through thier AUOTLINE Arbitration procedure. What amazes
me is that I have never said that I wanted to have them re-purchase my
car. I do like my vehicle but the engine whine whihc has been diagnosed as
a design flaw with the intake manifold is something that I was hoping
Hyundai would at least make an attempt to fix. I ahve requested numerous
times that they give my dealership authroity to try some things to fix it
b/.c they refuse to do anymore until they receive approval from Hyundai.
However, instead of working with me the consumer which I am willing to do
they are pushing me to enter arbitration to get tehm to buy back the car.
It may be that the design flaw is not readily corrected and the easiest
way to make you happy is to buy back your car. I don't understand why
they would want you to do this via the above procedure rather than just
make you an offer, unless there is some advantage to them to using the
arbitration procedure - unless they expect you to lose in arbitration,
which then may prevent you from suing them later. I'd be sure to read
the fine print of arbitration VERY carefully before taking this route.
