Hyundai is recalling over 419,000 of their cars and SUVs. The reason for the recall is to fix suspension, brake, and oil leak problems. United States safety regulators on August 1 of this year had the biggest of three recalls, recalling 225,000 Santa Fe SUVs from 2001 to 2006 because of front coil springs to be replaced due to rust and cracks in cold-weathered states. These SUVs were sold in 20 states and Washington, D.C., and affected the states are Wisconsin, Vermont, West Virginia, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Maine, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, and New Hampshire. Springs will be replaced for free and owners will be notified by the end of September. No crashes or injuries were reported, but the company did receive 1,200 warranty claims. 133,075 Sonata’s from 2011 are also up for the recall due to brake fluid leakage that can cause increased stopping distance. The hoses will be replaced for free starting by the end of September as well. Also, no crashes or injuries were reported due to the issue. Also recalled is 61,122 Veracruz SUVs from 2007 to 2012 due to possibility failure of oil leaks from a valve cover gasket on the alternator. This could cause the engine to stall and then won’t be able to restart. No injuries or crashes were reported due to this problem. For free, dealers will inspect and replace any alternator and front valve cover gasket by the end of September. Just this year, the company had recalled over 40 million vehicles in United States.

    1. Hello Sharley-
      My first suggestion if you have any concerns that you vehicle may be affected by any recalls, would be to visit or contact your local Hyundai dealership.
      The dealer can run the VIN number on your vehicle to verify if any of these or other concerns may have affected your car?
      Drive safe and thank you for visiting Auto Club USA.
