Out of State may mean Out of Luck
Unfortunately on April 5th my 2017 Sante Fe broke down on Rt 91, St Johnsbury, on my way to Jay Peak. The electrical harness failed as a result of the knock sensor putting my vehicle in to limp mode. The Barre dealership was the closet Hyundai dealership around to service the car resulting in me being left stranded in St. Johnsbury. It took 6 days to get back on the road. The harness was sent regular mail, not overnight delivery, not getting to the dealership until April 11th. The dealership said there was not a loaner available nor would they delivery my fixed vehicle once it was repaired. I had family in Newport, Vt., and we had to stay there as there was no Car Rental businesses in Jay Peak, nor Newport. I feel communication to the status of the repair was poor as I had to constantly call the dealership to see if the part had arrived and the service department did not even know the tracking number in transit was until I inquired where the part was. A suggestion to service is that since this was only a $35.00 electrical harness part and that there is a major recall on the knock sensor that this part should be on hand as inventory. I was led to believe that the part was ordered on April 6th and was told it would arrive special delivery either on Monday the 8th or Tuesday the 9th. Again it didn't arrive until Thursday the 11th, resulting in both my wife and I calling out of work and the stress of not knowing what was happening. I must say that the national Hyundai Customer Service was great once the case worker that was assigned to my situation got in touch with me. One critique I do have is that before the case was picked up by a case worker, the original Roadside Assistance operator stated she was not authorized to call the Hyundai dealership to see how the service was progressing. She asked me at the end of our phone calls if there was anything else she could do to assist me and I requested for her, since she worked for Hyundai Roadside Assistance, to call the Barre Dealership.
