This problem was most commonly cited in the 2013 Elantra model, though there have been outliers in other years as well. Drivers notice this issue when they’re slowing down in preparation for a turn or when they go to change lanes.

If the noise is accompanied by a knocking sound from the engine or any type of unusual noise from under the hood, you should bring your car in right away. Your check engine light should turn on as well, which is a helpful indicator that your engine may need to be serviced.


When power steering fails, this can be a frustrating experience for a driver. This commonly occurred after the vehicle had been driven and put into the park gear. Turning the wheel without the benefit of power steering is annoying, though it can be done manually.

A mechanic should check the fluid level, as this can happen if it’s low and preventing the power steering from functioning. The serpentine belt may also be stretched and lack tension. Another solution may lie within the steering rack, which makes it difficult to steer once a failure has occurred.


Brake failure is an imminent concern once you start feeling the reduction in braking power. This can cause a collision and put drivers all over the road at risk. If you notice that the brake light in your Elantra is on, this can indicate a variety of problems from blown fuses to more serious concerns.

Low brake fluid can cause the light to turn on, as well as faulty brake pads and rotors that need replacement. Fremont Foreign Auto can resolve these issues and more if you’ve noticed concerning signs about the braking system on your Hyundai Elantra. This requires immediate attention and should be addressed to avoid an accident on the roadway.


Electrical system woes can show themselves across a variety of components, such as the ignition and the car alarm incessantly going off. These electrical issues can also cause the vehicle to fail, so the wiring should be looked at quickly instead of putting it off.

If there is a loss of the power brake assist, this can lead to total brake failure. Before purchasing a used car, one should always look over the electrical system before buying. Wiring issues can be solved but it’s best to know beforehand so you know what requires a repair or a replacement.
