RepairPal Expert Overview on April 1, 2013

Over 1,000,000 Hyundai vehicles are being recalled because the stop light switch can fail, resulting in loss of brake light operation and various other electrical concerns.

Hyundai will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles during June 2013. If you are experiencing problems with the brake lights, cruise control, shifter, push button start, or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system system, or if you don't receive recall notification after the notification date, please contact your Hyundai dealer. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Hyundai recall number is 110.

A whirring or whining noise may develop from the transmission. This could lead to failure of the right intermediate drive shaft, which can cause a loss of engine power to the drive wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any abnormal noise is noted from the transmission area. Please contact your Hyundai dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
