2003-Hyundai-Santa-Fe-2

Μπορεί η GM να είναι ο πρωταθλητής των ανακλήσεων για το 2014, αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει πως είναι ο μοναδικός κατασκευαστής που ανακαλεί οχήματα του. Η Hyundai παραδείγματος χάριν, ανακαλεί 419.000 αυτοκίνητα στις Η.Π.Α., σε 3 διαφορετικές καμπάνιες.

Η πλειοψηφία των οχημάτων (225.000) είναι Santa Fe με έτος κατασκευής 2001 με 2006 στα οποία, τα εμπρός ελατήρια θα χρειαστούν αντικατάσταση. Από ότι φαίνεται, τα ελατήρια αυτών των Santa Fe, μπορεί να σκουριάσουν ή/και να σπάσουν όταν εκτίθενται σε ψυχρό περιβάλλον και το αλάτι που ρίχνεται στον δρόμο σε αυτές τις περιπτώσεις.

Έπειτα, το Sonata ανακαλείται για μία ακόμα φορά. Τώρα, 133.075 παραδείγματα του μοντέλου του 2011, ενδέχεται να παρουσιάσουν διαρροή υγρού φρένων εξαιτίας μίας τσιμούχας.

Τέλος, 61.122 Veracruz ανακαλούνται για πιθανή αστοχία του εναλλάκτη τους. Το πρόβλημα εντοπίζεται σε μία ελαττωματική τσιμούχα στην κυλινδροκεφαλή που μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε διαρροή λαδιού πάνω στον εναλλάκτη και εν τέλει, αστοχία του.

Κανένα από τα προαναφερθέντα προβλήματα δεν κατέληξε σε ατύχημα, πόσο μάλλον τραυματισμό ή θάνατο ενώ, όπως συνήθως, οι επισκευές στα οχήματα που καλύπτονται από την ανάκληση, θα γίνουν δωρεάν.

SUMMARY:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model Year 2001-2006 Santa Fe vehicles manufactured from March 31, 2000, through February 15, 2006, that are registered and operated, or which were originally sold and registered, in the following 20 “salt belt” states and the District of Columbia: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The affected vehicles may experience front coil spring corrosion from road salt, causing the coil spring to fracture and make contact with the tire.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the front coil spring fractures due to corrosion it could cause the coil spring to make contact with the tire, possibly puncturing the tire and increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the coil spring, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 124.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SUMMARY:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2011 Sonata vehicles manufactured from December 11, 2009, through September 1, 2010. The affected vehicles may experience a brake fluid leak from the two brake lines that connect the brake system’s master cylinder to the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) due to insufficient seal between the inner brake hose and metal brake line fitting.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the brake lines leak brake sufficient fluid, the brake warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate and longer stopping distance will be required, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake hoses with a revised service part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 122.

SUMMARY:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Veracruz vehicles manufactured from December 26, 2006, through July 24, 2012. The affected vehicles may experience an oil leak from the front cylinder bank valve cover gasket. If there is a sufficient amount of oil dropped onto the alternator, the alternator will be damaged causing the charging system to become inoperative.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the alternator is damaged, the charging system warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate, and the engine will lose power and the vehicle will eventually stop operating while being driven. An unexpected failure of motive power while driving increases the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect/repair or replace the alternator and the front valve cover gasket, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 121.
