 Description of the problemDec 29,2016 vehicle engine completely broke down while driving 55 mph on rural highway. All lights came on at once and i was able to steer it to an intersection and pull over. Towed to local garage. Initially diagnosed as burnt out starter, however, once replaced the engine would not turn over. It was seized. The vehicle was towed to myrtle beach hyundai on jan 3rd where it will be tested. I believe this is related to the hyundai recall regarding defective engines with metal shavings although i had just had the recall tests done at the dealership on dec 16th. I have had a series of issues with the turbo ever since i bought this new car with service records at dealerships in burlington, nc as well as in shrewsbury, nj and n. Myrtle beach. All receipts are in the vehicle right now at the dealership but i can upload at a future time.
