Had the Veloster N w/ PP for about 1 month, aboot 1500 miles on it. Every time I start the car the fan noise is noticeably loud, remains in idle, and remains on about 30 seconds after the engine is cutoff. I know many cars have fans that will continue to run but this car seems to be extremely loud relative to other cars I've had (never had a Hyundai before). I'm not driving the car crazily, just commuting to and from work in traffic in 60 degree weather and I'll get out and the fan is making a ton of noise. Anyone else notice this or have an opinion? I'm planning on taking to dealer to have a mechanic look at it soon.

I'm not sure what (if any) cooling differences exist between the PP and the base N or if the PP just runs that much hotter but have noticed the fan runs more frequently, for longer and is noticeably louder in the PP.

Actually the PP N has a much better cooling system all the way around. Take it to the dealer, it's not your problem, it's theirs. The PP N runs the same temps, as the non-PP.

After some clicking around, I see that there is some differences in cooling systems, no idea if it's just programming or mechanical or both, my fan (non PP car) came on yesterday (85 degrees outside) as I was pulling into the garage, I have a 1200 ft long driveway and very steep so I drive slowly, it wasn't very loud and only stayed on maybe 20-30 seconds, normal easy driving before pulling into driveway.

My non-PP has a fan that is quite audible and it will run after shutting the car off for upwards of a minute if the car had been driven moderately hard and not given a few minutes at idle to cool down before shutting off.

I honestly did not realize the cooling of the two cars were notably different in terms of physical components...I don't see why Hyundai would not use the same system, given twinning is likely cheaper than having two different sets of cooling components?

If you have a video, while we could not easily discern if it is too loud, we could at least say if it sounds abnormal.

Following this thread. I haven't bought a VN yet, but I live in the desert and temps are 100+ for ~6 months out of the year so the cooling system will definitely be taxed here. If the cooling systems in these cars are working hard when it's 85F, I'm curious if it'll be able to keep up when it's 120F.

After more thought, I'd have to see different part numbers for radiators, fans, water pumps etc before I'd consider there being much difference if any in cooling systems between the two cars. I'd bet the engines are exactly the same other than tuning, be silly to use different cooling systems between the two. I haven't hammered on my car yet but I've not read any reports on them actually running hot, I guess the fans come on early by design. I'm sure Hyundai did hot weather testing on these cars so I'm not worried in the least.

Update: Took the car to local Hyundai dealer yesterday. The service technicians all said the fan did seem excessively loud at idle but they couldn't say for sure if it was abnormal. Since I didn't have an appointment scheduled (just stopped by on my way home from work hoping the dealer could squeeze me in), they told me I'd need to come back in a week when they have an open spot on their schedule and they'd make sure they'd have their "top" mechanic look at it. They let me leave the dealer after about 30 minutes after checking that everything was normal (no warning lights, error codes, etc.). They said I can continue to drive it as long as no dash lights come on. I don't have video of the car with the fan noise but can take a video and upload soon. Will update y'all when I take it back to the dealer next week.

I wouldn't guess there's a malfunction but after owning both a PP and a base N one of the very first things I noticed was a significant difference in the engine cooling fan operation. In the base it sounds much like most every other car but when the PP fan kicked on (at least on the particular car I had) it just sounded much more powerful. I never actually investigated differences in fan performance but they sounded completely different to me.

I'm confident there will not be any cooling issues with the car. If Genesis can run all that power in there engines, I'm very confident the veloster will be able to take a beating as far as heat goes.

The only possible issue I could see, is the turbo/anti-lag system but even then, it looks like it was executed very well. Hopefully this engine will never have it's own engine recall either.

LMAO, hope not! 1.7 million 2.0's and counting. :grin: Wow and $16K per engine that's allot of bread!!! $272 billion dollars worth.

Hopefully Hyundai learned their lesson!:wink:

Scary to think about. You'd think Hyundai would have fixed the problem but we have been ordering some engines for 2019 sonatas and elantras. I'd say the N is hyundai's baby at the moment and I hope they realized that this would be a terrible time to mess this beauty up.
