2014 HYUNDAI ELANTRA WITH STEERING, SUSPENSION PROBLEMS

ON THE ELANTRA GT, THERE IS NOTABLE PROBLEM WITH THE REAR SUSPENSION SYSTEM. WHEN HOLDING THE VEHICLE IN A TURN TO GO AROUND A CURVE, SUCH AS A HIGHWAY RAMP, THE VEHICLE’S REAR END WILL HOP IF IT HITS A BUMP IN THE ROAD. I IMAGINE THIS HAPPENS WHEN GOING STRAIGHT AS WELL, BUT IS NOT AS NOTICEABLE. WHEN GOING AROUND A CURVE, THE BACK AND WILL FISHTAIL SLIGHTLY CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO BECOME UNSTABLE IN ITS PATH. ON DRY ROAD, THIS DOESN’T USUALLY PRESENT A PROBLEM AS TRACTION IS RESTORED QUICKLY. HOWEVER, ON A WET OR SLICK ROAD THE SITUATION COULD PROVE TO BE MORE DANGEROUS. LUCKILY, THAT SCENARIO HAS NOT HAPPENED TO ME. YET. THERE ARE VARIOUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE ACROSS THE INTERNET FOR ALL MODELS OF THE CURRENT GENERATION ELANTRA (COUPE, SEDAN AND HATCHBACK). SOME PEOPLE REPORT THAT CHANGING THE REAR SHOCKS WITH BETTER AFTERMARKET ONES SEEMS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY HYUNDAI.
