Hyundai recalls over 420,000 vehicles in the US over separate issues

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 5, 2014

Hyundai Motor Co. is calling back around 420,000 Sonatas, Santa Fes, and Veracruzes in the United States over separate issues. The South Korean carmaker recently issued a recall of 883,000 Sonata sedans (model years 2011 to 2014) due to potentially defective transmission-shift cable.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were no reported injuries or accidents in the latest recall. The latest round of recall covers around 225,000 Santa Fe crossovers (MY2001-2006) in 20 cold-weather US states as road salt can cause rust in a coil spring.

NHTSA said the coil spring could fracture and puncture a tire, thereby leading to a possibility of a crash. The recall also covers around 133,000 Sonata mid-size sedans (MY2011) due to leaking brake fluid that could lengthen the distance required for it to stop completely, which may possibly lead to a crash.

The latest round of recall likewise includes around 61,000 Veracruz crossovers (MY2007-2012) due to an oil leak that may result to damage to the alternator and the charging system, possibly leading to a full loss of power and a crash, according to the NHTSA.
