 Description of the problemCar has begun to malfunction after only three years of ownership. There were no warning signs of a faulty engine or overheating. In december of 2020 i took the car to get an oil change, it is now january 2021 and i have had to add oil to my car due to an overconsumption of oil. After taking it to hyundai i am now being told that the car might need to have the piston rings replaced which would require an engine rebuild or a whole new engine. The car malfunctions on the road as well as when it is idling. The car was used regularly for school but since the pandemic began it has been rarely used.
