Hyundai Paint Problems Lawsuits Are Widespread
If you purchased a Hyundai recently, you may be aware of the Class Action lawsuit over the defective self-healing paint. This lawsuit alleges that Hyundai concealed defects in its paint, which is then sold to consumers. The class action has been consolidated, and the claims are widespread. Hyundai is accused of violating federal warranty laws, and a lawsuit filed against the company is likely to bring some relief. However, you must act quickly.
The class action lawsuit alleges that self-healing paint on Hyundai vehicles is defective
In 2017, a class action lawsuit was filed against Hyundai Motor America, Inc., a subsidiary of the Korean automaker, alleging that self-healing paint on Hyundai vehicles was defective. The plaintiffs claimed that the paint bubbled or peeled, and they felt that Hyundai had concealed a latent defect in the vehicle’s design. The lawsuit also alleges that Hyundai vehicles had soy-based wiring insulation, which attracts animals and causes the paint to peel and bubble.
The paint on the Hyundai Santa Fe and Veloster is allegedly delaminated. The lawsuit is aimed at the manufacturer, but the carmaker does have a warranty on its paint. This could result in a settlement worth 11 million to 22 million dollars. Whether the automaker will accept this settlement depends on the circumstances of each case. Hyundai Motor America Inc. is an unlikely defendant in this lawsuit.
The proposed class action against Hyundai was dismissed with prejudice in April after the manufacturer denied the allegations. However, the lawsuit’s proposed class consists of all Hyundai vehicle owners. Nevertheless, if you’ve suffered from this problem, don’t let it deter you from bringing a lawsuit. Hyundai has already paid out more than $1 billion to victims of its self-healing paint.
The class action lawsuit alleges that Hyundai concealed defects in the paint
A judge recently dismissed a class action lawsuit against Hyundai, claiming the company concealed defects in the paint of some of its vehicles. The lawsuit claimed the carmaker knew of the paint defects but failed to disclose them, leaving the body of the vehicle unprotected from corrosion. Hyundai says it was aware of the problem but didn’t know about it until consumers complained about the vehicle online. But the judge found that the company had known about the defect, even though there were no direct complaints from consumers.
The NHTSA investigated the matter and found that there had been 364 reports of shifting while driving. The Office of Defects Investigation found that there was no loss of motive power and no unreasonable safety risk. However, despite these findings, the plaintiffs’ attorneys are still pushing for $5 million in damages. Hyundai, which has pleaded guilty to the class action, says it will honor warranty claims, but denies coverage to those who don’t keep records of their maintenance.
The class action lawsuit alleges that Hyundai concealed defects in the paint after it was sold to customers
In the United States, a new Hyundai paint defect lawsuit has been filed against the automaker. The lawsuit alleges that Hyundai concealed defects in the paint after selling vehicles to customers and has a class of owners in seven states. The company was aware of the defect as far back as 2011 but did not do anything about it. As a result, the lawsuit seeks damages for owners, as well as compensation for the costs of repair.
In a recent lawsuit, SSH filed a class action against Hyundai and other automakers over paint defects in the company’s vehicles. The plaintiffs alleged that the paint of their cars had rust and defects that had been concealed after the vehicles were sold. This lawsuit was successful, and Hyundai has agreed to pay out the victims’ repairs. In response, the company is allowing affected customers to join the lawsuit and receive compensation.
As part of the investigation, Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants failed to disclose the defect in the paint after selling the vehicles to the public. The defects were known as early as the design and pre-production stages. They claimed that the Defendants knew about the defects through warranties and technical service bulletins and from complaints that were directly made to them.

How do I file a claim? I have a 2014 Hyundai Sonata that was purchased and my name and my mother’s upon her death in 2018 shortly after the warranty was no longer an effect is when I went to a local dealer where it was purchased and complained of the peeling they told me that they would notify me by mail if there was a recall.
I filed a claim with Hyundai and they had agreed to pay up to 60% of the claim for me that’s unacceptable.
In my opinion if they continue to use this paint or now have been confronted with faulty paint they should be liable.
So how do I get them to repaint my car at their cost?
My 2015 white Sonata hood is peeling. Car only has 40,000 miles on it and dealership says it will only pay 60% of it. I didn’t put the paint on nor peel it off and know it’s a widespread issue and they pay all, some or nothing! Make it right Hyundai!!!
How can I file a claim to be reimbursed by Hyundai? I have a 2017 Elantra that had the white pearl paint and it started peeling off last year. I called Hyundai and was told there was nothing they would do since the warranty was only for 3 years. I went to Maaco and had it repainted. Now I just received a letter from Hyundai saying that they have extended the warranty. But they say they can’t reimburse me because I had it painted somewhere else instead of the dealership. I don’t see how they can refuse me since they offered no help with the problem when I called them at first and so I went to get it done where I could afford to. They are reimbursing customers that had it repainted at a dealer. They should take care of this since they are now admitting to the paint problems.
