2012 Hyundai Sonata Engine Defects

Model Years

It has recently come to our attention that there are potential engine defects present in certain 2012 Hyundai Sonata engines. The Hyundai Sonata engine defect manifests in a loud and unusual knocking noise coming from under the hood. Sometimes this occurs while travelling at an accelerated speed. The knocking is abnormal and unusual, i.e. without a discernible pattern, and sometimes gets louder, sometimes softer. This causes extensive damage to the engine’s components and the engine itself. Many cars that were sold have engines with this type of defect.

Aside from the potential hassle of having to deal with the car breaking down, this is also a safety issue since the engine can shut down at any point while the car is being driven, even at high rates of speed, such as on the freeway.
