No need help

My 2017 Hyundai Tuscon 1.6L Turbo failed on a 55mph highway with no warning signs, no check engine light, no low oil pressure light, very faint noise was heard prior to completely failing. Vehicle was towed to a local shop who stated there are 100s of thousand of recalls for this exact situation, then towed to Hyundai dealer who said they have 25 cars in line waiting for engine replacements. My vehicle is not part of a recall yet, but like with the other Hyundai engines is at risk of failing at high speeds risking massive injury and death. My vehicle does not qualify for the KSDS knock sensor they are putting in other vehicles to warn the driver of catastrophic engine failure. A warning to get off the road is nice, but these engines are a danger to those who operate them and those who may collide with them at high speeds in the event of engine failure in lower visibility than my case or even inclement weather.

How likely are you to recommend this car to a friend?

No, I would not recommend
