 Issue ID684652

 Model Year2008
 File date21/07/08
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI have a 2008 elantra that stalled on july 21, 2008 on the new jersey turnpike when it had 3,455 miles. The car decelerated so quickly that i was almost rear ended by an 18-wheeler. A half hour earlier it nearly stalled in an intersection and almost caused an accident. The check engine light turned on approximately 10 minutes before the the intersection incident and 40 minutes before almost being rear ended by the truck. A state trooper stopped to make sure i was okay and to escort me to the toll both / exit but i don't imagine he filed a report. I push the car off the turnpike exit and had it towed to the local hyundai dealer. They diagnosed the problem as a failed fuel pump and replaced the part. There was no accident and no one was injured but the possibility of injury was very real.
