2012 Sonata SE Stalls at first start of the day regardless of temperature. Needs restart.


Asked by Mar 20, 2012 at 09:51 AM about the 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At the first start of the day, the car will start and then stall.  Needs to be restarted.
Push button start is nice but seems to be source of trouble so far.

1 Answer


The push button starting problem seems to have corrected itself. The much warmer weather could be the reason for this. The Dealer did review the problem but could not duplicate.
