Recall roundup: 419,000 Hyundai cars for three separate problems image

Hyundai has recently issued three separate recalls for different problems which will be affecting a total of 419,000 vehicles.

Hyundai Motor Company is currently recalling models such as the 2001 – 20016 Santa Fe, produced between March 31, 2000, and February 15, 2006, which will be affected by the road salt corrosion, which may cause the coil spring to fracture. This can puncture the tire and increase the risk of a crash.

In the second recall, the South Korean based car manufacturer is announcing a call back for the 2011 Sonata, produced between December 11, 2009, and September 1, 2010. In the affected vehicles, the brake fluid may leak from the two brake lines which connect the brake system’s master cylinder to the HECU (Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit) and if this happens the cars will require a longer stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

The last recall is affecting the 2007 – 2012 Veracruz, which have been produced between the 26th of December, 2006, and the 24th of July, 2012. These cars can experience an oil leak from the front cylinder bake valve covering the gasket, leading to the engine power loss. For any extra details, the owners of the vehicles mentioned above should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151 or the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
