2003 Hyundai Elantra recalls

 

Suspension & Steering, July 17, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Hyundai is recalling 2001–2003 Elantra and Tiburon vehicles in areas of the country with heavy concentrations of road salt usage. Corrosion and thinning of the steel in the front lower control arms may progress to a point where the panels become perforated, which can cause a fracture between the ball joint and pivot attachments to the chassis.
