I really LOVED this car when I first bought it. I've had it going on my third year and it's falling apart ! EVERYTHING is expensive to repair and most mechanics refuse to work on them I've noticed. I could have bought an old beater for what it cost me to have a timing belt put in and now that it's been replaced, the two sensors behind the belt cover are bad. Crankshaft Position Sensor and the Camshaft sensor. I put new front brakes on it and as I was driving home from the mechanic's, the ABS light came on. I found out that the wheel sensor is bad and has to be replaced to get the light off. I'm trading it AS SOON as I get it fixed. I can't very well expect a decent trade in value with the check engine light and ABS light on ! :/ Also I might ad that the rear struts work fine, but make a helluva noise ! If anyone reading this comes across an 02-05 XG 350 or 350L as mine is WALK AWAY !!! Mine looks awesome, black w/black leather power moonroof, LOADED even has rear air but man...what a POS !
I am having issues with my hyundai. The check engine light has been on for sometime, and the engine codes say "limp home". The car does shift rough sometimes but my main problem is when I am accelerating at high speeds ( 60mph and above) the car shakes/ vibrates. I do not think that it is the balancing of the wheels because it only happens when I am accelerating, if I take my foot off the gas the ride is smooth. I am a single mother and am trying to figure out what the problem is without spending loads of money.
i boughht my xg350 with 86,000 plus miles in october 09, thank goodness for extended warranty, it has saved me many times, the calipier freezes up quite often, is that normal?
sadly, my extended warranty ended in match 11 and since its been a money pit, meaning it all started with a simple oil change and fuel filter change and its been one issue after another and this atm is dried up. to date, i now have 125,000 plus miles, what else could go wrong or is it in my best interest to get another extended warranty?
im really worried about the belt breaking, so i had it inspected by 3 different mechanics, all 3 said it was good, what does that mean in the mechanic world?
i know it will cost roughly a grand for part and labor.
my air condition squeals every time i turn it on, so i just suffer thru the mn heat, what does the squealing mean?
any input is welcome, thannk u
I bought the car when it only had 8,000 miles on it. The car is everything I wanted, it is comfortable and dependable. The one bad thing is the radio. It is terrible.
