Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls
The warning chime that sounds to alert vehicle occupants that their seat belts are not securely fastened may fail to sound. This could result in an occupant forgetting to buckle their seat belt, and increase risk of injury in a crash.
For vehicles operated in areas where road salt is used, corrosion may cause the front coil springs to fracture. If the coil springs fracture, they may contact the tires, causing damage to the tires and possible loss of vehicle control.
Vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine could loose power to the drive wheels without warning due to a broken axle.
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 is recalling 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe models because the air bag system may not properly detect an occupant in the passenger seat and fail to deploy the front passenger airbag in an accident.
Due to an electrical issue in the steering column, in the event of a crash, the driver's airbag may not deploy as designed.
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.
The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting numerous vehicle systems, many of which can increase the risk of a crash if they fail.
