    lots 'O' pretty pictures & video ads. Got in the pre-order line . . . but THIS is causing a double take.



    Hyundai Ioniq 5 Recall On The Horizon Due To Coolant Leaks?

    Hyundai acknowledges coolant leak in Ioniq 5 - UPI.com

    Their Kona EV suffered a batch of issues that iirc eventually got ironed out.
    Hyundai Announces Massive Battery Recall For Roughly 82,000 BEVs

    maybe the quality scare will stop the stealerships from trying to gouge buyers to the tune of $5K-$10K like what's happening to the rav4-prime

    Recalls - even before hitting the streets. not too encouraging. . Wish they'd have put as much into their quality department as they do their ads. Faulty cooling won't necessarily kill the baby in the crib ... but it does raise an eye brow.

    off topic . . . . but there seems to be quality issues of the single motor id4's as well. primarily software.
    growing pains.

    The ID.3 had issues with software in the beginning. Seems making a mass market EV isn't that easy.
