Another day, another auto recall that our clients and readers should simply not ignore.
Hyundai has launched a recall after the company learned that several of its Azeras and Sonata vehicles could expose consumers to fire risks.
According to the company, the vehicles may be exposed to risks as the anti-lock brake module may be exposed to water. In this case, there might be an electrical short circuit and the engine compartment may experience a fire as a result. This could happen whether the vehicle is in use or not, expanding the potential risks of major fires.
While this particular campaign isn’t massive, impacting only a little over 87,000 vehicles, it’s an important and serious one as drivers could be impacted as well as bystanders and even other vehicles and private property.
Dealers will be installing a relay in the vehicle’s main fuse panel, bringing an end to the possibility that there could be an ABS module shorting. All repairs should be performed entirely for free.
If you are a Hyundai customer and you own one of the recalled vehicles, do not wait until a fire incident takes place for you to act.
All too often, accidents happen before recalls are launched. In this case, there was an incident involving some smoke in the United States associated with the impacted vehicles. Another minor incident was also reported in South Korea.
We’re glad that while minor incidents were reported, none resulted in injuries. If you would like to know more about this recall and how to get your vehicle repaired, follow this link for more information on the campaign.
