Car shutting off while driving

Asked by Oct 25, 2019 at 01:09 PM about the 2017 Hyundai Accent GL Sedan FWD

Question type: General

My 2017 Hyundai Accent turned off while driving.  I was travelling 40 mph,
level road at 4:32 pm. I had a half tank of fuel and haven't refueled in a
week. I have 20,000 on the vehicle. The speedometer and tach needles
dropped to zero, all of the dash lights came on and, really weird both of the
trip meters went to zero.  While still moving it restarted and I continued. It
concerns me that my car would just shut off without notice.

Sounds like a defective ignition switch. Your car's under warranty. Just take it to the dealer to repair.
