We purchased this 2017 Hyundai Tucson SE with the All Wheel Drive system and the Turbocharged 2.0 engine from a shop in Hawthorne, California. We saw the vehicle at the shop and then drove to the customer to pay them, as we often do for our customers.
Unfortunately with just over 87,000 miles and the engine had already given out. The customer decided not to put a new engine in it but to part ways before investing more time and money into it. You just never know what you’re going to end up with when you put a used motor in a car. Especially when that particular motor was known for catastrophic engine failure early on.
The 2.0 4 cylinder engine found in the Tucson and Sonata had a recall for premature rod bearing wear, which could result in engine failure or, in extreme cases, engine fire due to the connecting rod puncturing the engine block and causing the engine oil to leak onto moving or hot parts of the engine. The 2.0 Turbo engine was shared in several different models of Hyundai vehicles as well as in their sister company’s vehicles (KIA).
We can buy your Hyundai Tucson, Elantra or Sonata with a bad engine. As well as any Kia Soul, Forte, Rondo or Sportage, running or not, recalls fixed or not.
