A Hyundai dealer handed her a $7K repair bill.

Daryan Coryat says she could hardly believe it when a Barrie, Ont. Hyundai dealership handed her a $7,000 repair bill for her SUV.

Coryat wants Baytowne Hyundai to help help pay the cost, saying the dealership didn’t take proper care of her 2013 Hyundai Tucson while the vehicle sat for eight months on its lot waiting for a new engine part.

“They didn’t want to help out whatsoever,” said Coryat, who lives on the outskirts of Barrie about 110 kilometres north of Toronto.

She says she took her SUV to the dealership in August 2021 when it broke down. Hyundai Canada eventually agreed to the repairs as the part that broke was under recall for 2013 Tucsons.

“It took about eight months for the part to get here due to COVID and part shortages,” Coryat told CBC Toronto.

She says Baytowne told her the vehicle was ready in April 2022, but the engine light went on when she drove it off the lot and Coryat noticed immediate problems.
