Hello all, I'm totally new to this forum and the EV world - this is my first Hyundai, EV, and first time leasing. I am looking to see who else has experienced the same issue as me: I signed a lease for a brand new 2021 Kona Electric on June 17th 2021, and just two weeks later (July 3rd) I had to have it towed to the dealership because it would not turn on after being charged up. Got it back 2 days later, only to have to tow it back to the dealership again on July 7th for the exact same issue. It ended up being in the shop for 8 MONTHS because they were waiting for the new battery to be delivered. I never got a full explanation of what the issue was with the battery - something about it being a faulty feature meant to keep it from catching fire?? - and I am wondering why this was never included in any kind of official recall. Apparently my case was the first one my dealership saw and then within a few days of my car initially going in they got a ton more with the same problem. I contacted the Hyundai Finance Mothership when my car initially went in and looked like it would be there for a while to ask about freezing my lease payments for the time being and was told NOPE. I was told I needed to continue to pay the lease payments, they would provide me with a loaner (which was of course a gas engine car so I had to pay for fuel now, too), and then when the repairs were finalized then I could submit for reimbursement for my lease payments. I finally got my car back last week and am going to file for the reimbursement, but I've got this nagging feeling that Hyundai is going to drag me through the mud with this process and try to wiggle out of paying me all the money I put into this lease for almost a year. I've tried to get them to say "we will pay you all your money back" in writing and they haven't, they've shifted me from case manager to case manager, and on the Campaign Reimbursement form I need to fill out on the website it doesn't say anything about lease reimbursement, only repair reimbursement. This is a long winded way of asking, IS ANYONE ELSE IN THIS SAME WIERD SITUATION?? I know there is a class action lawsuit going against Hyundai about the battery systems in the EVs already, but I would like to know if anyone else is looking at having lost nearly a year of their lease due to this shady issue. I had a good experience with the dealership staff themselves but Hyundai overall has been sketchy as ****. Any advice or story swapping is appreciated!
