2016 Hyundai Sonata PHEV Hybrid System Failure

My Sonata PHEV had Hybrid System failed not once, but twice within a span of 1.5 months. It's been hardly 1.5 years since I had bought this car. In both cases the Check Hybrid system warning comes up and Engine looses total power. The 1st time it happened, it was in the middle of a busy 405 freeway and was left all of a sudden with no power on the engine. Extremely dangerous and life threatening problem to face with. With what ever power was left, was able to coast to the ramp on the right. Stopping anywhere in 405 freeway is absolutely dangerous, even on the shoulder (many people including cops has been rear ended). The 2nd time it happened it was on a 3 lane local Parkway still dangerous as I am left with no power to control the car. It was 106 degrees outside while I was waiting outside for the tow truck to come. The car had to be towed to the dealership in both cases. The 2nd time the car had to be towed I had called Hyundai roadside assistance, and that turned to be a total disaster, which I am not getting into here as that will take another post to describe the awfull experience I had. After that I had to call my AAA service to get it towed. The dealership took 1 month to fix the car the 1st time. They ended up replacing the Power relay Assembly which had to be shipped from South Korea. It ran for close to 1.5 months and again the same problem with the Check Hybrid System warning and its back at the dealership. The dealer ship says that the Power relay has gone again and Hyundai now wants to see if replacing the Hybrid Battery will fix it. It seems to be a trial and error thing from Hyundai's end, let's try this, let's try that and see. I have become their unpaid real time Tester to try out their solutions.Now they want another month to fix it!!! Highly unreliable car, imagine getting this problem in the middle of nowhere, this car cannot be trusted. I have so much expectation from this car when I bought it but it turned to be a Lemon

Wow.

So, I guess I'm not alone. *VERY* similar situation. Check my thread here:
2016 Sonata PHEV - Left me stranded

I *still* don't have my car back...but I'm also going through the process of getting Hyundai to buy it back as a lemon. If you qualify, I *STRONGLY* suggest doing the same.

I'm also trying to get Hyundai to buy my Plug in back. It failed to charge, twice. Today it almost died, while accelerating.

Make sure you take the time to fill out a safety complaint with NHTSA. Your issue sounds dangerous.

Just out of curiosity, how many miles were on the car when this happened?

Are you using an attorney for this? (Just curious, because I am using an attorney for my Lemon Law actions.)
GOOD LUCK!

I had 32K miles on it when it happened 1st. How about you ? I believe that for those who haven't faced it yet, it is a ticking time bomb, by the time it gets to this mark, there is a good chance it will fail.
