Adaptive cruise control works well most of the time. Occasionally, it ignores stopped traffic and closes to a dangerous distance. It then slams on the brakes and all warning lights go on. The sensors are defective. On two lane roads, the sensors detect oncoming traffic and flash the brake warning light. When on cruise, the sensors detect cars making a left turn when passed on the right, and apply the brakes. The same thing happens when on a freeway in the middle lane passing a car on the right. The false warnings have happened since i purchased the vehicle. It's been to the dealership numerous times. They can't fix it. The cruise problems were discovered on a trip to florida from january to march 2021.

Vehicle stopped in front of us on a state highway. I slammed on the brakes. The car failed to stop within reasonable distance and pulled hard to the left. Causing us to strike a concrete wall destroying the car and masonry wall. Three occupants sustained minor imjuries. Brakes always felt weak but since we bought it as a new car we didn't know any better. Upon looking over the crash scene only a single skid mark was observed from our car. It appears that the brakes on the right side of the car did not engage or the abs system malfunctioned causing only the left side tires to brake fully. I am aware of brake issues with this model car and it may have contributed to the crash. Car was seemed a total loss.

Brake light failure. Brake lights work inconsistently. Changing the bulb does not fix the problem. This is an electrical issue that has been reported by numerous owners. This is a safety hazard as the components have to be repaired by a technician which causes hundreds of dollars, per light. This is a defective product that should be recalled!!!

Took the vehicle to get the subject 195 ( 20v543000) recall performed. Upon arriving to hall hyundai in newport news, they informed me that parts were not available. I previously asked them upon making the appointment if they had parts in stock. They assured me they did. Prior to this, i attempted to have the recall performed at pearson hyundai in richmond, va on two separate occasions. I called the service department a couple weeks prior to the appointments to ensure they had parts, each time i was told they did. However, upon arriving each time the informed me they had no parts. I was also told by a parts worker that the dealership was putting any new parts received into the vehicles on the lot so they can be sold. This vehicle remains a safety concern since multiple dealerships do not have the parts to repair.

While driving on the freeway at 70mph, my steering and brake system become less responsive. Could not brake fully. Electronic console gave a numerous warning alerts, including: cross traffic warning, four wheel drive system temporarily not available, restraint system malfunction, and possible chassis malfunction. I was to pull over to the side of an offramp, and needed about 100-200 feet for the car to come to a complete stop, despite pumping the brakes.

Service electronic brake system and abs warnings, both visible and audible. Dealer replaced abs module under warranty for first occurrence at approx 23000 miles. Occurred again at approx 40000 miles and diagnosed as same issue agin at independent shop. This resulted in a $900 replacement of the same module. The effect of the the module failure on brakes and safety is unknown to me. The warnings can happen at any time, when starting vehicle, or when driving. Sometimes the warnings subside but seem to be triggered easily by hitting a small bump on the road while moving.

I DROVE MY VEHICLE TO MY CHILDREN'S DAYCARE A FEW MILES FROM MY HOME, PARKED, AND TURNED OFF THE CAR. WHEN I WENT TO START THE CAR TO LEAVE, I HEARD A STRANGE BUZZING TYPE SOUND AT STARTUP, AND THEN GOT A BUNCH OF WARNING LIGHTS FOR THE BRAKES AND TRACTION CONTROL. I TURNED THE VEHICLE OFF AND ON A FEW TIMES TO TRY TO GET THE WARNINGS TO CLEAR. I NOTICED THE BUZZING SOUND WAS COMING FROM WHEN I PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL. I TRIED TO GET THE VEHICLE TO GO INTO NEUTRAL BUT IT WOULDN?T. THEN I TRIED PUTTING IT IN DRIVE, AND IT DID GO INTO DRIVE, BUT STARTED DRIFTING BACKWARDS BECAUSE I WAS PARKED ON A SLOPE. THIS IS THE SCARY PART THAT COULD HAVE INJURED SOMEONE. I WAS IN A DAYCARE PARKING LOT AND SOMEONE COULD HAVE WALKED BEHIND MY CAR AT THE TIME IT DRIFTED BACK. THANKFULLY THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. I MASHED ON THE BRAKE TO STOP THE CAR, AND IT DID STOP BUT REQUIRED MORE BRAKE TRAVEL AND MADE SOME GRINDING NOISES, LIKE THE ABS WAS OPERATING. AFTER I REALIZED I HAD A MAJOR PROBLEM, I SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND FOUND SOME PEOPLE ON FORUMS WITH SIMILAR ISSUES. I TRIED DISCONNECTING THE 12V BATTERY FOR A FEW MINUTES, A COUPLE OF TIMES, BUT COULDN?T GET THE BRAKE ALARMS TO GO AWAY. SO I GOT IT TOWED TO MY DEALER. DEALER WAS BUSY AND DIDN?T GET TO LOOK AT THE CAR FOR TWO-THREE DAYS. THEY SAID THAT WHEN THEY TURNED ON THE CAR THEY DIDN?T SEE ANYTHING WRONG. I ASKED THEM IF THEY SAW ANY CODES, AND THEY CHECKED AND THEY FOUND CODES FOR THE CAN COMMUNICATION AND INTELLIGENT BRAKE SYSTEM. THE SERVICE ADVISOR CALLED THIS A "FLUKE" AND SAID THAT THE CAR WAS SAFE TO DRIVE. HOWEVER, I AM READING THAT THERE ARE MANY REPORTS OF THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL YEAR Leaf. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS CAR, ESPECIALLY NOT WITH MY CHILDREN IN IT. WHAT IF THE "FLUKE" COMES BACK WHILE I AM DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AND CAN'T SAFELY STOP IN TIME?
