Hyundai is honoring the recall even though the car is 11 years old?
Can you send me whatever info you have?
Maybe I can get mine fixed too!
I expect to read a thread in a couple years or so that you have to sell off some equipment to pay for repairs on this automobile.
The cars you have had in the past are/were junk and this one fits right in that category. Buy cheap poop and that's what you end up with.
My Chevy Suburban has a couple hundred thousand miles on it and runs terrific and looks great. And 5-6 years ago gas would cost me 50% to 60% less than today.
Sal good luck and I do hope it works out for you guys. I do understand all the warranty BS but don't count on it.
Sal that's a great car....wish the price was little lower...one of my-cworkers has Volt and it looks great (can't say same about any others)...hope this one lasts longer than 10 years
I'm out on the deck currently enjoying a brew but will PM you some details in the next day or two. It isn't "warranty" it's actually a recall which means Hyundai is legally obligated to provide whatever remedy they came up with to you. Details to come via PM.
Thanks. Maybe I can get my old car fixed for free!
Well I made it fine, From my house to Brooklyn with 70 miles left in the battery and then home again by 10:00pm with 48 miles left in the battery. The Battery was still charged at 52% when I got home.
Here's a Quick pic I took of the center console while waiting in traffic:
And Here's a Picture of the Trees I made during my trip:
Actually I made one more but I forgot to take a picture of it.
Here's the Charger I'm looking at buying. My Neighbor is looking to see if his company can get it at a wholesale price.
This charger uses a plug that is designed to be plugged into the same receptacle that is used for an Electrical clothes dryer so then if you have to you can bring the charger with you and have the greater chance of having some place to plug it in.
This website has for sale adaptors that can used to change the plug so that it fits in all various style plugs that you can find at all different places, like Hotels, Camp grounds, etc.
Nice ride, Sal. Only suggestion I have is that if you're going to ride with Metallica, ride with the "Black Album"
Clean nice pickup....oh wait that's a car.Hope it didn't come with a Emotiva amp in it I heard they got dem "Bugs" in dat new amp XPA-1L monoblock amp. lolo....But really cool ride bro.
Yeah, LOL. The iPhone I synced with the Car only had a few albums downloaded. I downloaded all of them last night.
I guess someone had to buy one...
Just kidding, congrats!
The recall for the control arm is the last one on the page -
Recall ID # 87634 - SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM
Click on "full details" for all the info. If you go to Hyundai they can down VIN search and tell you what recalls have been completed on your vehicle and take care of any that haven't been done yet.
whats the warranty on the batteries?
For the recall, I have a 2003 Honda Pilot and I get a recall notice 2 weeks ago. They did fix it for free ( I didn't know anything was wrong with it but I still look it in)
I hear there are going to be charging stations along I-95 (and more planned in the future on other interstates) which make long distance travel possible with the Leaf. And more and more hotels are going to have them too. Just have to stay 1 night and the charge is free.
There are two Warranties on the battery. One states that the battery will work for 8 years or 100,000 miles whichever comes first.
That was the original warranty and for some people it wasn't working out because they claimed that being in extreme heat the battery was losing bars. The 2011 to 13 leaf Battery has 12 Bars in the instrument panel in the car. Each Bar is good for around 7.5 miles.
These people who live in the mid-west/south-mid-west USA were having issues where the battery (because of heat) was not charging all the way up anymore and then their range was diminishing.
So Nissan came out with another Warranty that states for 5 years or 80,000 miles that battery will never fall below 9 bars. If the battery falls below 9 bars and cannot be charged to 9 anymore they will “fix” the battery so that it goes back up to at least 9 bars.
Basically they will remove a few faulty units and add a few new ones making the battery hold more of a charge.
So if you are at 43,000 miles and less than 5 years old and the Battery will only charge to 7 bars then they’ll fix the battery to go to at least 9 bars.
If you are at 76,000 miles and 7 years and it only charges to 6 bars you’re out of luck.
If you are at 76,000 miles and 7 years and it’s dead, won’t take a charge anymore then you’ll get a brand new battery.
But if the Car is at 80,001 miles and 5 years old and the battery only charges to 5 bars and you can still get 40 miles of range they are not going to give you 5hit. You’re SOL.
Nissan is coming out with New replacement battery pricing this June.
I said 2011 to 2013 above because the rumor is that the 2014 will have more range and a larger battery.
Meadowlands Nissan...passed that place about 5807832750982 times this past weekend.
Was staying at the Meadowlands Sheraton (8th floor facing the city) and the wedding stuff was in Wood-Ridge. Sort of missing north Jersey again (only place on earth where you can drive like a total d-bag and still be one of the better drivers on the road lol)
My Wife is trading in her 2010 Sonata and getting a Prius C this weekend.
Just out of curiosity Sal, how long does it take to charge the battery from say 25% to fully charged ?
Costco used to have charging stations but yanked them out because nobody was using them.
Cool, so you can take a road trip with this car - just need to plan your rest stops along the way.
