On vehicles equipped with All Wheel Drive and the 3.5L V6, at speeds between 3 and 12 MPH, vibrations from wet brake pads may cause interference with the electronic signal noise with the ABS sensor. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) may activate, which may extend stopping distance and result in a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ABS ECU. The recall began March 24, 2004. The Hyundai recall number is 065.
On 49 vehicles, tear lines for the passenger front air bag may be missing from the instrument panel. If a crash were to occur, the air bag may not deploy properly if it is needed. Hyundai will replace the instrument panel. The recall began October 13, 2003. The Hyundai recall number is 063.
On 36 vehicles, the driver's seat height adjuster mechanism may interfere with the seat belt wiring, which could cause the seat belt warning lamp or supplemental restraint system lamp to illuminate. It could also cause the airbag fuse (cavity number 5) to open. If this happens, the airbags may not deploy if needed in a crash. Dealers will install a new driver seat belt buckle if needed, and a protective cover over the driver seat belt buckle wiring to prevent any damage. The recall began September 23, 2003.
