Just like any other vehicle, Hyundai Veloster has not only pros but also cons you should be ready to embrace and deal with. Thus, along with a stylish, up-to-date design, rich comfort and safety features, and pretty good dynamics, there is also the potential bad, such as engine and transmission problems, as well as some entertainment system issues. Let’s talk about them in detail so you do not find yourself on the back side of the road one day.

Main Hyundai Veloster issues and owners’ complaints
1. Transmission problems
Transmission slippage, high RPMs yet poor acceleration, and odd noises are among the most common transmission problems that Veloster owners have complained about. Such problems may appear at the mileage of 25,000 miles and are mostly caused by low-quality transmission fluids, regular driving under heavy loads, or hidden defects. If so, a transmission rebuild should help but, in some cases, replacing the whole transmission is the only way to fix the problem.
2. Engine problems
From knocking noises and loss of power for approximately 10 seconds to going into limp mode and excessive oil consumption, engine problems can cause a lot of problems on the road. None of these signs can be neglected and should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid a complete engine failure. Unless you’re a mechanic, leave the job to a professional. That will save you a lot of budget and headaches in the long run.
3. Connecting rod failure
Being an integral part of the engine, a connecting rod does an essential job, tying the piston to the crankshaft and creating rotational torque. To last the lifetime of the engine, it must be strong enough to withstand extreme combustion loads. Unfortunately, as many customers’ complaints say, Hyundai Veloster connecting rods are not durable enough to work under high pressure for many years. That’s why if you like to run at full throttle from time to time, you should be ready to replace your connecting rods or even the whole engine assembly at the mileage of 60,000+ miles.
4. Poor Bluetooth connectivity and syncing
That is no longer an issue for the latest generation Veloster; however, owners of the 2013-2015 Hyundai Veloster have reported problems connecting their smartphones. In some cases, the connection breaks suddenly for no reason; another issue is a completely frozen entertainment system.
The Hyundai Veloster is a quite reliable hatchback that is packed with modern technology solutions and safety features. Although, there is nothing endless under the sun, so breakdowns happen.
