Hyundai settles engine defect class action



This settlement resolves lawsuits that were filed against Hyundai Motor America and Hyundai Motor Company alleging that an engine defect caused stalling, engine noise, or oil lamp illumination in the 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata with a 2.0 liter or 2.4 liter gasoline direct injection engine.

The settlement extends the Powertrain Warranty for the engine short block assembly. It also provides cash reimbursements for certain repairs and repair-related expenses, such as rental cars and towing. The settlement also provides cash reimbursement for certain trade-ins and sales of unrepaired vehicles.

To qualify you must have bought or leased a “Class Vehicle,” which are 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 model year Hyundai Sonatas with a Theta II 2.0 liter or 2.4 liter gasoline direct injection engine.

My 2011 Hyundai Sonata stalled while driving 60 mph with a big rig right behind me. Fortunately, I managed to get off the road safely. The car was towed to my local dealer and it is sitting there with no action after 3 days (that I'm aware of).
I feel I'm getting the run around. My vn # is connected to the 132 recall as well as the engine assembly class action lawsuit. The dealership and hyundai customer service do not seem to be aware of the class action lawsuit regarding the assembly.
I don't know what to do.
