Hyundai Sonata Check Engine Light Leaves Drivers Flustered

Almost every driver has experienced the ominous check engine light at one point or another.  Seeing it pop up on your new vehicle however is very disconcerting. That’s the feeling multiple Hyundai Sonata owners are experiencing with their vehicles. Many callers to our 1 800 Lemon Law hotline are reporting a repetitive Hyundai Sonata check engine light issue.

Our friends over at have logged numerous complaints ranging from blinking check engine lights to other symptoms occurring when their engine light came on.  One driver reported that his wife “was driving down I70 in a blinding rainstorm, when all of a sudden the engine light started flashing, the engine started sputtering and the computer screen said “Engine System Malfunction”. We couldn’t manage more than 50mph down a busy interstate as cars and semis flew past us.” That same driver reported that his vehicle sat in a dealer shop for more than a month waiting on parts for replacement. 

Under State Lemon Laws and/or Federal Warranty Statutes, you may be entitled to significant compensation if you’ve had your vehicle in for repeated visits or have lost use of your vehicle for a large amount of time.

If you reside in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or New York, we have specific state Lemon Law FAQ pages with loads of information.

If you are seeing the check engine light come on in your Hyundai Sonata take it into an authorized Hyundai service dealer immediately.  If they are unable to provide a clear fix, the light comes back on after the repair, or you lose the use of your vehicle for an extended period of time, you may have a claim and best of all, the legal help is free. 

You may be entitled to a complete repurchase, a new car, or significant compensation for the losses you have experienced. If you are ready take advantage of consumer protection laws to get back on the road of recovery, fill out our Get Rid of Your Lemon form. We will be glad to discuss your situation and determine if and how we can help.
