 Description of the problemOn may 30, 2016 at around 9 pm i stopped my 2015 hyundai sonata at a traffic light and without warning the engine died. I was almost rear ended when the light changed to green. No warning lights came on until the engine died. After about two minutes i was able to restart the car. I turned left at the intersection where my car had stalled and in the middle of the intersection the engine died again. I thought i was going to die. Exited the car and waved traffic by. Two more minutes and the engine started again and i was able to drive the three remaining blocks to my home. I had the car towed to ourisman hyundai where i bought it. They have had it ever since. Today, june 6, ourisman called and said they could not duplicate the problem and i should return the loaner car and pick up my sonata. I will not pick up a sonata that dies in the middle of driving. I would like to live. I called hyundai america and reported the issue and they open d a case file. I have left messages with the gm at ourisman and he has not returned my calls. Oh, i forgot to mention that when i bought the car (it was a year old) i told the salesman that i did not want a hertz, avis or any other rental car. He assured me it was not purchased from a car rental company. After over 5 hours at the dealership, i was told it had been from a rental company. I was worn out and thought it still had four years left on the warranty. I feel like a fool. I have asked hyundai america to buy my car back.
