I've had this car 2 months and now its acting like it doesn't want to start on the first turn often. Now yesterday while pumping gas the safety click never stopped and gas shot out everywhere! I was too scared to crank the car because gas was everywhere. I have an appointment next week but not confident with the dealer. Had issues with them since I bought the car.

Something similar happened to me this weekend with my 2022 Tucson limited hybrid. I pushed the start button and nothing happened for about 10 or 20 seconds. When it finally started, the radio/navigation/ settings reverted back to guest. Luckily it didn't erase my profile so I was able to change it back but the whole experience was weird. I'm taking it to the dealer today to see what is going on..

So the dealership service dept kept my car for a day and a half and ran 3 tests stating the car passed and unable to duplicate the problems. I will be filing an official complaint the auto industry's regulator, the Federal Trade Commission, for further assistance.

Does anyone think it might be worth getting the extended warranty? I usually don't as someone is making money on it and it is not me! But I'm really thinking about it after reading many of these posts.

I did buy the extended warranty with my new Tucson Hybrid. Dealer told me that if the head unit had to be replaced, it costs 4 to 5 grand. If you won't keep the car longer than 5 years...then maybe not worth it? Buying it up front runs a little over $400 per year of extra warranty.

So, you are going to get the extended warranty? I fully intend to keep mine longer than the 5/60K warranty. I shudder to think of the cost of replacing the hybrid batteries after 5 years <g>.

Of course you will still have warranty on the hybrid battery. 10 yrs 100000 miles if I’m not mistaken

Yes, 10 years or 100K miles on batteries in the US. I purchased the extended warranty from Hyundai so most everything covered for 10 years. The price of the car head unit, I was told is $4 to $5K. So, depends on how long you intend to keep the car.

I had a 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and had 108,000 miles on it in 8 years it had a lifetime warranty on the battery. I never had a problem with the battery. I traded it for the Tucson( not hybrid ) this year because of only the 100,000 mile on the battery. I do miss my hybrid!

Surely the pump not stopping is a problem with the actual fuel pump, not the car? Petrol pumps have a sensor which sucks in air as it dispenses fuel and as soon as the air is replaced with fuel, it recognises that the end of the nozzle is below the fuel line, therefore the tank is full and it shuts off.
