2019 N 6MT dying at idle

Hey, everyone, new to the forum, but proud original owner of my N. I've loved the car for the 23k miles I've put on it. However, lately I've been having issues with the vehicle dying on me.

I had issues with one of the fuel pumps at the beginning of the year, and I decided to replace the high pressure. It still continued to die so I took it to the dealer. They stated that my low pressure was bad and replaced it. It still died, so they replaced the low pressure again saying that they installed a faulty pump.

Fast forward like two weeks from then, my electrical went haywire. They fixed some loose pins and grounds in my drivers side door panel. Worked great. Finally, I solved all my problems. After picking up the car, it drove and ran flawlessly the entire fifteen mile drive home. After stopping to get some breakfast, the car started perfectly, but shortly after leaving and stopping at a stop light, the car began to bog down, lose RPM, and eventually die (Similar to my original fuel pump problem).

I brought it to the dealership once again, about four days ago. This morning I received a call from my advisor that they have been unable to replicate the problem I previously stated to them. They said the car ran fine, even after being hard on the throttle and driving in N Custom (which is the only mode I ever drive the car in.)

I'm at a loss and I'm starting to debate selling the car. I apologize for the essay, any advice helps. Thanks in advanced.

Take it to another dealership. Open a ticket and complaint with Hyundai Assurance. Any trouble codes pending or permanent?馃憤馃嚭馃嚫

Don't mean to be negative but I'd probably sell the car too. Phantom electrical problems and issues the dealer is not smart enough to fix are a nightmare. Especially if you're still making payments on the car but can't drive it.

I totally agree with you if it was taken to more than one dealership. But though I live within 10-15 miles of a few Hyundai dealerships, if I ever needed warranty work, I'd only go the dealership I purchased my car at after talking to the techs at a couple of them. I don't feel the level of service is equal across all dealers.

I agree, I'd see if there's another dealer that could at least take a look. I've had experiences that have been up and down depending on what I was there for. Good and knowledgeable dealers are hard to find.

I had a friend that recently had similar issues with his car (not a VN) but it ended up being the 12V battery. Maybe swing by a parts shop and have them test it for you to make sure the battery isn鈥檛 just dying? Also maybe an alternator test. Not saying I鈥檓 sure this would be the issue, but worth at least the free checks at an auto parts store
