At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone in California, New York or Illinois who bought or leased certain Hyundai or Kia vehicles with a dual-clutch transmission and experienced shifting problems or loss of power.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys are looking into certain Hyundai and Kia models that were recalled in late 2022 due to a problem with the electric oil pump in their dual-clutch transmissions. It’s believed that the recalls may not have adequately addressed the underlying issue – and the attorneys are now looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of drivers who have experienced transmission problems.
What Problems Are Drivers Reporting?
Harsh, jerky, erratic or hesitating shifting or a complete loss of power while driving.
Which Vehicles Are Under Investigation?
Certain Hyundai Santa Fe, Santa Cruz, Sonata, Elantra N, Veloster N and Kona N vehicles, and Kia K5 and Sorento vehicles (the full list can be found below).
How Could a Lawsuit Help?
A lawsuit could help drivers get back money for repairs and possibly force the automakers to provide a free fix for the potential transmission problems.
