 Description of the problemI purchased a 2014 hyundai elantra gt brand new. Admittedly i put a lot of miles on my vehicle and it had 121000 miles. However, i always kept up on my maintenance and always used synthetic oil since the first oil change. After getting an oil change i was about 3 miles from the facility and my car suddenly lost rpm and the speed decreased. I pulled over to the side of the road and turned my vehicle off. No lights came on, not engine or oil. I turned the vehicle back on and suddenly the engine started making a rattling noise. I called a tow truck and had the vehicle towed to my local garage. That mechanic said he thought it was the timing chain. I then had the car towed to dickson city hyundai. There, they said i needed a new engine. I began speaking with a representative from hyundai customer care. I ended up having to pay half of the engine replacement and labor costs. My portion was $3250. This is completely ridiculous that a vehicle always maintained would have the engine gone a month before the five year anniversary of purchasing it. I will never buy another hyundai in my life.
