    Default Problem with Hyundai

    The engine block has cracked on our 2011 Hyundai Tucson. My wife has been told of at least 5 similar instances of blown engines in the new Hyundais. Has anyone heard of or had a similar problem?

    thanks,

    Danny

    Hi,what size is your motor?My wife own a 2009 Santa Fe with a 3.3L V6 and it's running fine.My sister-in-law bought a 2010 Santa Fe and she had a lot of problem with the transmission.It was so bad that,for a small fee, Hunday changed it for a 2011.
    At least,yours is still under warranty.
    Good luck.

    You were looking for a jeepeta and Hyundai was your first choice was your first mistake. You could have gotten a Ford Escape or a Honda CRV but no...Now if this car is in DR I have no idea how you are going to get this fixed. Because there is no warranty and I wanna know who is going to pay the $3K for the replacement motor?

    A much better car at the same price as the Tucson.

    Well, most 2006- mid 2009 Honda Civic 1.7L engine blocks are cracking like crazy, so it's not just the Korean brands.
    I have heard of the problem, but so far it effects the 4 cylinder blocks.

    My first choice but I haven't bought anything yet. A friend of mine swears by them. Has bought 4 so far, travel all over the DR with no problems. Anyway, I'm still shopping.

    For a tune up on a Ford scape he will be charged with four hours labor as to replace the sparks plugs I'll have to remove the intake manifold.

    use platinum plugs so you only have to do it once.

    and those 1.7L 4 cyls are Korean casted also.

    Racer three weeks ago a friend of mine trying to go around with the mechanical broke the spark plug on #2 cylinder of his Pontiac gran prix.
    He is lucky I could get it out using one of those extractor for stripped screws with no damage to the threads or to the engine. I idled the motor for a little bit before installing the new spark p. just in case any small part of metal to be dropped inside the cylinder when drilling.
