Hyundai owner gets DKK 25,000 – new electric car sat idle for 63 days

A Norwegian Hyundai Ioniq owner has received the court's word that he should receive compensation of several thousand kroner because the car sat idle for 63 days at the same workshop.

A Norwegian car owner has had such big problems with the 12 volt battery in his Hyundai Ioniq that the high court agrees with him.

The Hyundai dealer must cough up a compensation of 40,000 Norwegian kroner, corresponding to 25,500 Danish kroner.

This is written by Norwegian Motor .

The compensation must be given to the Hyundai owner because the car has been in the workshop with the same problem for a total of 9 weeks. The 12 volt battery kept discharging itself even though it was replaced twice.

The problem lies in the car's so-called Integrated Control Charging Unit. A problem both Kia and Hyundai have due to group relatedness and platform sharing.

The car brands have even issued a guide that enables car owners to avoid problems with the 12-volt battery. But it is not in all cases that this is the solution.

The Hyundai dealer then also tried to blame the driver for the battery continuing to drain itself of power. But the Norwegian legal system did not buy that explanation.

So, in addition to compensation for the driver, the dealer must pay all the costs of the case. But the matter is not necessarily over. Several Hyundai/Kia owners report exactly the same problem with the battery.

However, other drivers also complain about completely different types of faults on the cars. Among other things, Kia has had to recall over 1,200 electric cars that decompose themselves. Read more about it here.
