Potential Charging System Fault

An engine oil leak from the front valve cover gasket could result in enough oil leaking onto the alternator to cause its failure. An alternator failure will cause the charging system warning light to illuminate.

Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the alternator and front valve cover gasket as necessary to correct this concern.

The Driver's Airbag May Not Deploy as Designed

The clock spring electrical contact for the driver's airbag may become damaged through normal usage over time.

2007 Hyundai Veracruz Reviews

I have a constant knock in my 2007 Hyunda Veracruz hatchback. I have brought the vehicle back five times without a solution. I wondering if anybody has had the problem and have had problem resolved.
We have been getting approx. 22 mpg around town and about 24/26 on the highway. Otherwise I totally agree with Dicks review. Maybe he has the AWD? Ours is the GLS and Front wheel drive only.
Excellent driving, quiet,syle, but gas is horrible. They do not tell you the real story about gas miles. City arount 13 mpg hghwy 24.8. But overall a great crossover to own.
