Hyundai Announces Three Recalls for 420K Vehicles
Share this Article

Hyundai has announced three new recall campaigns that affect roughly 420,000 vehicles, taking the total amount of Hyundai vehicles recalled this week up to 1.3 million in the U.S. 

The first campaign affects the 2001 through 2006 Santa Fe sold in 20 different States where road salt is heavily used. The issue is rusting coil springs that can break and potentially make contact with the tire. Dealers will inspect the coil springs and replace them free of charge. There have been no crashes reported as a result of this issue, but Hyundai has recieved 1,200 warranty claims about the springs, about 90 of which say the spring hit the tire.

The second recall affects the 2007 through 2012 Veracruz crossover. An oil leak from the front-cylinder bank can drip onto the alternator, causing it to be damaged and stop charging. In this event, the engine can lose power and stall while driving. Dealers will replace the cylinder gaskets and or the alternator if necessary.

Finally, the third recall affects the 2011 Sonata. These cars may experience a brake fluid leak from the two lines that connect to the system’s master cylinder. In this event, stopping distance for the car will increase. Hyundai dealers will replace the brake hoses.
