Neighbors 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0L Turbo just came back from the garage. Last week my neighbor started the car in the morning -- multiple stalls and when it did start -- barely idled if you wanna call it that. Car flat bedded to garage. Brought the car home yesterday -- flat bed again. Said they did a compression test and 3 cylinders barely have any compression. Told it needs a new motor. Car presently has 147,xxx miles on odometer.

This is a very common issue. I am floored it made it to 140K miles before needing a new engine. Most fail sooner.

I always wonder about those tiny turbocharged engines and how durable they are.

Hyundai did extend the warranty to 10/120k but at nearly 150k he might be SOL.

RIP...2011 Sonata 😭

That’s tough luck for your neighbor. Those things are junk...hope for his sake he doesn’t buy another.

My in-laws who are the cheapest people on the planet just purchased a Kia w/out cruise control 🤐

Checked out the link you posted -- says it covers 10 yr./120,000 miles. He is surpassed the mileage warranty. I am gonna give him the customer service number to call them. Interested to see what they say. What does he have to lose by atleast talking with them.

So what.. it's their money; it'ss nobody else's business how they spend it. And besides, maybe they mostly drive in town and didn't see the value in spending the extra cash for the upgrade.

Fwiw, I rarely use my cruise control except for on long road trips - which is what, maybe twice a year? If it stopped working tomorrow (knock on wood) I wouldn't spend the money to fix it unless for some reason it effected the safety of the vehicle or had a dramatic effect on overall performance.. otherwise, I'd be just fine doing without it.

Time for me to be rude. The engine probably died younger than necessary due to our addiction to 87 octane. The crap tune Hyundai and others program to make turbo vehicles survive on 87 octane is absurd.

Most vehicles come with a stated warranty. Sometimes a vehicle manufacture will extend the warranty on certain issue(s) beyond the original warranty when bad press arises.
The new trend is more and more people are thinking the vehicle manufacture should warranty certain issues seemingly well beyond the written warranty.

Realistically? The car is 9 model years, a Hyundai and should be sent to the junk yard unless Hyundai will actually throw in a new engine.

because manufacturing defects = octane.. they didnt adequately clear out manufacturing debris. maybe it only had a couple tiny chips and made it that far..

I'd call hyundai because even if they wont totally cover it.. 75% coverage and new engine would still be worth it etc.

The vast majority of EcoBoost F150s run on “crap 87 octane” in fleets and private ownership. That’s a 2.7 or3.5l twin turbo DI 6cylinders doing truck duty. I suggest it’s not just the use of “crap 87 octane”. Plenty with 150k+ miles.

This Hyundai engine has a known defect.
