So, oddly, my driver side low beam prematurely burned out on me. I took my VN to the dealer for replacing and to see if there is any underlying electrical issue that could cause it to burn out within the first 5k miles. Apparently the whole headlight assembly ($1,500) has to be replaced, which is absolutely absurd! This is all covered under warranty, but of course this means that I have to replace the PPF I added to my headlight, which will most likely cost me $200. I’m hoping this was merely caused by a defective part and that no one else will have to experience this.

They most certainly can and there are spec'd out kits for the 2019 Veloster, Veloster Turbo, & Veloster N.

Frankly, your dealer is full of crap, straight up!! Your first mistake was taking it to your dealer. They don't know squat about the VN. If you looked and have done a little research here and on other Veloster Forum, you will find out how to change the bulbs quite easily.

Like I said, there are spec'd LED kits available right now. There's an old saying, "look before you leap," it will save you a lot of time and money.:smile:

I can’t help but feel that every response coming from you is condescending. Of course I researched bulbs. I also looked at the headlamp assembly and thought, since my car is covered under warranty, why wouldn’t I at least try and take advantage and not pay anything, especially since my VN is so new and could’ve had other underlying issues?

Also, not taking sides with the dealer at all, as I would rather replace the bulb. Why in the world would Hyundai warranty put up a claimed $1500 for a whole new headlight assembly?

I had one of the LED modules in my passenger side headlight fail, causing the remainder of the LEDs to produce a very dim light to the point where others would tell me the DRL was out. I also hope there's no deeper issue behind these headlight failures. Mine also failed within the first 5k miles.

Dealer told me as well that they have to replace the whole unit. Losing the PPF is unfortunate...but if you want to be sure you'll have a working headlight again, probably safest to get the whole headlight replaced under warranty.

You mix your personal understanding and thoughts of condescension, in place of truth. (Feelings don't take the place of facts and facts don't care about your feelings.) This is the way, you think and where your mind goes. No one else has control of it, except you. If you don't want to hear the truth, then simply don't post erroneous information.

Stating the whole headlight assembly needs to be replaced, is wrong and I don't care who said it.
Of course I researched bulbs.
If you personally researched bulb replacements for the VN and were aware the bulbs could be replaced, why would you post such erroneous information? What underlying problems, have you personally read here or on other VN Forums, concerning this particular issue? Have you utilized the search engine at the top right hand of the page, to do any research on the subject?

You've already posted two identical threads, in hopes of getting additional responses. Do your diligence and search this or other forums, you'll find out there is no underlying problem. If you want to or decide to worry needlessly, about an issue which doesn't exist, go ahead.

I'm not concerned about you taking your car it to the dealer and exercising your warranty, it's your choice. You're responsible for what you post, no one else. I won't be the only one telling you,
you've posted bad information. So, get used to it.:smile: If you think countering bad information with truthful informed comments are condescending and improper, your in the wrong place. Providing accurate truthful information is, common place on any technical forum. Not attempting to do so, will always cause some debate.:smile:

I'm going to inform others when I read, erroneous information. I'll even admit when I've done so myself. The erroneous information you post, can causes others unnecessary concern. Each of us has a personal obligation to provide truthful, practical and useful information or simply ask questions if you don't know or are not sure. However, bad information is just that; "bad information."

Best advice, grow some thicker skin. In the future you might attempt to do some research on a particular subject, before posting erroneous information. It will definately save you time and possible personal discourse.:smile:

Don't even worry about it man he's been known to do this on both Veloster N forums (American and European). He just likes to provoke because I guess that brings him pleasure. He is not interested in sharing info or even reading your content in order to have a good intellectual back and forth conversation that increases knowledge in the community. He's a known troll, just ignore him lol.

There is nothing wrong with taking a defective vehicle into a dealer while it is under warranty. This is one of the benefits of purchasing a Hyundai, the warranty is extensive. Hopefully, the headlight assembly was just defective from the factory and the quality of the assemblies moving forward will be improved. It is true the dealers are not extremely knowledgable about the VN. But it's not like they are rebuilding your bottom end. If they want to replace an entire assembly under warranty and that solves the issue who gives a ****. Sorry about the loss of the protective film but I would have done the same thing. I would have noticed that my headlight was not functioning correctly and taken it in to let them deal with it.

Yep. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty and taking stuff apart, but when something fails like within months of purchase, one has to wonder, could this be a much bigger issue? Cheers!

Glad you guys got this resolved but yes. He will turn any chat toxic when we should all be here to help each other be respectful. But he acts like every single person in this forum doesn't know what a blow off valve is and doesn't know how to drive stick.
