A year ago I posted that my sister's 2017 Hyundai Tucson 2.0 L was burning 1 liter per 1000 kms. She was told that it had to be worse than that for Hyundai to replace the engine. They confirmed the the oil consumption was just slightly under but very close to 1 liter per 1000 kms with two separate consumption tests over the past year. Each tests meant 7 or 8 visits to the dealer to have the oil checked and topped up by them, a real nuisance for my sis.

Thoroughly fed up, she traded it for a 2018 Ford Edge yesterday at her local Ford dealer. Her husband did the negotiating, says their happy with the deal. My sister says she feels like a big weight was lifted not having to go near that Hyundai dealer again, and she's thrilled with the new wheels.

The 2.0 L in the Tucson has a good reputation AFAIK, but she was unlucky to get a lemon. That Hyundai dealer though, terrible service. Customer satisfaction sure isn't a priority to them, and they didn't do any favors for Hyundai's reputation either. My sister liked the Tucson otherwise, and would have been happy with it if the dealer had fixed the oil burning problem.

If the oil change interval was 7500 km or so I would have run the sump dry to burn up the engine then refill oil and let them replace it.

Not any dealer I've ever bought a used car from, no matter how they claim otherwise. Hide, not repair, that's S.O.P.

Why didn't she take it to another dealer? I've known people with 100,000 mile Hyundai/Kias get new engines for various reasons.

Sadly, time is a luxury not everyone has.
coffee

When I told my father of the huge waste of time and ripoff a local shop was (when I had my Focus) he insisted I waste several more hours and days with the incompitent shop.
I told him I had to absorb the waste of time and money, as my time is worth more than badgering a shop owner who's only interested in making money.
As a result I simply left them bad reviews on the internet. That got the shop owners attention, but it was too late as I found a better, cheaper shop to rectify the situation.

Sorry to hear, OP. Glad she got something else. Car issues along with poor service can be exhausting.

This was the only Hyundai dealer within an hour of her, the next one is another hour away.

Those in the know understand Hyundai/Kia's reputation of intermittent quality is well deserved.


As a tech, if I end up with a "problem vehicle" I do exactly the same thing. I bail out of it. Sold my Jetta due to reliability issues. Sure, I can fix it, but it's not my goal to show the world I can keep a lemon running.

I have to wonder if you had found a way to let out another half liter between every visit, they would have still told her the same thing.

Pretty sure they seal every orifice with a tamper evident seal.
