Hyundai has recently issued no less than three recalls which are affecting 419,000 of its vehicles because of three different problems.
According to the car manufacturer, certain model year 2001 – 2006 Santa Fe, produced between March 31, 2000, and February 15, 2006, will be the subject of a recall. In the affected vehicles, the front coil spring corrosion from salt can cause it to fracture and make contact with the tire, possible puncturing it and increasing the risk of a crash. The recall will begin at the end of September, this year.
The second recall issued by Hyundai is affecting only the 2011 model year Sonata vehicles, which have been produced between December 11, 2009, and September 1, 2010, because of the brake fluid leak from the two brake lines which are connecting the HECU (Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit) to the brake system’s master cylinder, increasing the necessary stopping distance. The recall will begin in September too.
The third and final recall issued by Hyundai is affecting the 2007 – 2012 Veracruz models, produced between December 26, 2006, and July 24, 2012, because of a possible oil leak from the front cylinder bank valve cover gasket, and if this will be dropped onto the alternator too, this will be damaged causing the charging system to become inoperative. For any extra details on these recalls, you should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
