CarScoops: Elantra N Owner Says Hyundai Stepped In After Cop Told Him To Sue Dealer Over Stock Exhaust

CarScoops website has posted, “Not long ago we told you about how a police officer chided and then ticketed a driver for his loud exhaust. While that might sound pretty normal for California, what makes it strange is that the car in question is a stock Hyundai Elantra N sedan.”

“Now, we’re getting new details from the driver stating that the Korean automaker has stepped in to provide more assistance in various ways. Check out the full original interaction below.” The car owner states, “a new Hyundai manager reached out to me and set up a date to have my vehicle picked up for testing at HATCI (Hyundai America Technical Center Inc). They set me up in a hybrid loaner and I am still currently driving the loaner vehicle.” So this situation is taking multiple months all while the owner continues to make payments on the car.

“”For its part, Hyundai seems to be going toe to toe with the Californian government over the issue. According to the owner, “Hyundai have confirmed a few weeks ago that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I assume that they will be holding on to the EN and I will be driving their loaner until the citation and state ref is cleared.””

“On top of that, Hyundai has given him a $500 payment as compensation for the trouble and he’s hired a lawyer for his February 23rd court date. Here’s to hoping that it gets thrown out long before then. The owner plans to provide an update with the results of the case when they take place.”
