SEVERAL WEEKS AGO, I bought from this dealer a 2010 Accent, 4-door,
but, being old-school, didn't think to look
for or ask about a TEMPERATURE GAUGE at time of purchase.
The Malloy salesman didn't tell me about this missing instrument,
Since that day neither the Hyundai Customer Service people at the
corporate headquarters, or Malloy Hyundai personnel would answer my
question: WHY NO TEMP. GAUGE?
Intentional? Is the lack of a gauge an economy move by Hyundai?
I'll probably never know.
But the absence of an easily visible IN-DASH analog gauge has made me
and skeptical. Like what else DOESN'T this motor vehicle have?
The owners manual refers to an emergency light that, supposedly, comes
on when the vehicle is dangerously hot, as a "temperature gauge." No
THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE! So, I have an inquiry about this issue
pending with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
