Date: friday, 3 july 2020. My car would not unlock with the key fob. Thought the key fob was dead and grabbed the spare to try again. No luck with that one either. Tried using the blue link app to unlock. Unsuccessful again. Unlocked my car with the key from the fob and got in. None of the interior lights came on (i keep this feature on). That should have been my first clue. Tried starting the vehicle like the owner's manual suggests if the key fob battery is weak. Didn't work. I tried to test different functions that would normally work if a vehicle is off (i. E. The lock/unlock buttons and hazard lights). Nothing worked. I had to call for a tow to my dealership, which has to wait until after the holiday weekend (4th of july). I will not find out the problem until after. I did not leave any lights on or any doors open. I just used my car the day before this and there was no indication of anything wrong with the vehicle. No lights on the dash came on to alert me of anything and my car is acting dead. More dead than your regular needing a jump start dead. The only thing i have not tried is jump starting in fear of invalidating the warranty in some way. Thankful my car is just in my driveway and i'm not stranded with my kid somewhere.

Car gives warning message to "immediately shut off the car to prevent damage ".... This has happened numerous times and hyundai doesn't seem to have a fix, and doesn't think its a safety issue. This is a safety issue particularly when you are in heavy traffic with no place to move over to shut off the car

Feb 2020 driving on interstate 70 engine seized with oil spraying out the bottom of the car with no warning (light) of issue from the vehicle. Vehicle towed to dealership. Vehicle has under 50,000 miles. Warranty did not cover engine issue (appealed 3x? S) paid out of pocket for a new short block engine. Have not driven much due to quarantine covid-19 & employee cut backs at the dealership. Recently (today) returned from a short a trip (approx 150 miles on pa turnpike) with oil spraying out from the bottom of the vehicle again. Luckily, the engine did not seize this time but it would have if i kept driving. Regardless, it is very dangerous & unsafe. Hyundai needs to do something about this issue. Will never buy another hyundai again and will never recommend this so called? Safe? Vehicle to anyone.

I was coming back from the river on rice road (177) on friday 6/26. Traffic was light and there was a car in front of me but quite a distance from me so when i heard the windshield crack, i was confused as to what it was. I chopped it up to far flying pebble that got me, no big deal i have insurance coverage to repair and fill in this small chip. I called my insurance and today? Safe lite? Came out and was doing the repair and it cracked halfway down to the driver? S side. Never seen a repair crack that much that fast. I have had pebbles hit other car windshields and have been repaired with out issue. Even the repair person said this was not normal.

2020 Hyundai PALISADE
Parts: VISIBILITY/WIPER
  • Date of Incident: Jun-11, 2020

2020 palisade with 15,000 miles hit by a rock, leaving 2 decent sized cracks about an inch and a half in diameter on the passenger side. The windshield took a week to arrive and be replaced, which in the meantime the crack expanded almost the entire length of the windshield, crossing over to the driver's side. The windshield was replaced and taken to dealership to have sensors recalibrated. In less than a month from replacement, a pebble hit the windshield, this time on the driver's side. Now having to replace a second windshield in less than a month. An easy online search shows that this has been a very common event among other 2020 palisade owners.
