Although the Hyundai Elantra is generally reliable, it isn’t perfect and can develop problems that may vary between the model year.


These common Hyundai Elantra problems should help you find out what is wrong with your Hyundai Elantra or just what you need to pay attention to in the future.


2017 Hyundai Elantra ignition coil problems

Poor coil packs is one of the possible ignition problems of Hyundai Elantra. A broken ignition coil for 2017 hyundai elantra can make your car almost impossible to drive or even can’t start.

And we all know that when it gets worse, it loses the ability to ignite the spark plugs and will effect the engine's operating capability.


Except the coil problem, we want to talk about some common problems which may happen to your Hyundai Elantra.

#1 Engine/Powertrain problems:

The company has recalled more than 1.2 million 2011-2014 models due to engine problems; including the problems like poor cooling, ticking noise and setback.
However, the recall seemed not resolve the problems like hesitation, misfire and the catastrophic engine failure.

Meanwhile, other engine problems like belt troubles, engine failure, and check engine light-on issues are reported in this recall.
After studies on its 2011-2014 cars, Hyundai eventually found out the root cause is the metal debris inside the engine.
Debris left over in the manufacturing process clogged the internal lubrication holes and caused the comprehensive engine failure.

#2 Steering issues:

In 2017, Hyundai recalled about a hundred of 2017 Elantra vehicles due to an issue with Electronic Power Steering connector. If your car is involved in this recall, your Hyundai dealership will replace the electronic power steering connector.

 The loss of power steering makes the vehicle hard to steer and control. It has the greatest impact at low speeds. If it’s not working right, it can quickly create a dangerous situation.

#3 Electrical system:

Over 500 Hyundai Elantra owners reported electrical system problems. 
More and more car systems are designed with electrical supply so the list of electrical problems is extensive. Common problems normally include car alarm malfunction and problematic ignition systems.

Wiring improper connecting problems are often the leading cause of electrical system issues. You should always have your vehicle checked for any wiring worn-out to see if the faulty wires need replacement.


#4 Problems with the Brakes:

The ability to brake quickly and properly is the most important aspect of any vehicle, but many Elantra owners seemed not satisfied with it.

The owners reported various problems, including failure of the master cylinder, poor quality brake pads, constant brake lights, and brake failure.


A bad brake booster would reduce the Elantra’s braking power. It increases the distance required for the car to come to a stop, which can lead to an accident if the driver fails to apply the brakes on time.


#5 Airbag problems:

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra has airbag issues in addition to sketchy brakes; these two problems are a dangerous combination. Many Elantra drivers claimed the airbag light came on but the airbags fail to deploy in a crash.
