    Be aware!!! Turbo issue

    Post by Flash2.0turbo on 11/28/2010, 8:02 pm

    The people that are talking about loud startup be aware. I bought my sonata turbo early november and it was loud on startup. I took it to the dealer with 356 miles on it and they said the bolts that go through the turbo were stripped out on the assembly line. Needless to say that was on the 10th of November. Today is the 28th and they don't have an answer when they will be getting the new turbo in. This has made me extremely frustrated. I love the car but am beginning to wonder if I made the right decision. They think that a rental and the new turbo makes it ok but this is very frustrating especially when u spend months waiting for that car to come out and get it and drive it 5 days and already have it in the shop.....

    Flash,
    Is it loud only when cold or every time you start it up? It seems everyone has excessive noise at cold start up. so far.

    Cold start up was the most noticeable. I thought there was an exhaust leak bc I have always had friends with turbo cars and let them hear it. Right away they said it didn't seem normal. I took it to the dealership and they agreed and inspected it. The bolts that go through the turbo to bolt it up were stripped causing it to not have a good seal. I noticed that at first the car wasn't getting anywhere the rated gas mileage. I am pretty irritated with the whole situation.

    I know that all direct injection gas engines are a bit noisy due to the high pressure fuel injection. But this sounds like a possible real issue. I'd suggest that anyone who thinks that they have a problem should visit the dealership and have things checked out.

    There is an advisory on this... No fix. It's not stripped bolts either, it's just the actuator rod for the wastegate rattling on a cold start. Really nothing to worry about. The rattling stops when the actuator moves the rod after it warms up for a second, if it doesn't stop u may have an issue otherwise, this is all it is.

    Ok?! U know the dealer will tell you things to make you satisfied you are getting something done.

    Did the noise stop after it warmed up?

    Tell them u want to see this "bolt" making noise... I just have a hard time believing it.

    Just saying I don't trust 50% off what I'm told...

    It wouldn't be as loud but was still louder than it should of been. On cold start up it sounded like the motor was going to blow up. It was excessively loud. It sounded like a pos. I know Hyundai has great cars this is my third and the car is awesome but this is ridiculous and the dealership still doesn't know when the new turbo will be here nearly a month has passed. I told them I need to no something by the end of this week. Alabama has a lemon law!!! I am beginning to get extremely pissed off but hopefully it will all turn out good bc the 5 days I drove it I loved it.

    I'll try and video mine at cold start up, so u can see. It is loud and sounds cheap but stops. I BET they are waiting on a new turbo for nothing.

    The first time I heard a cold startup, I thought something was wrong. But after hearing a few, they unfortunately all sound cheap and strange on cold start. I'm pretty disappointed in the sound of the motor in general. Sounds nothing like the 2.0T in my GTI. Maybe it just needs a catback Smile
