Hyundai Tucson Recalls
The engine will not accelerate when the accelerator is pressed and released repeatedly, during certain driving conditions and high temperatures. This could make the vehicle immovable and result in an accident.
The hood may open unexpectedly while driving due to a secondary hood latch that fails to secure it. This could cause loss of visibility and vehicle control.
For vehicles equipped with a trailer hitch and wiring harness, the turn signals of the trailer may not operate as expected when activated. This is due to an issue with the wiring harness. This could result in a crash if other motorists can not determine the driver's intent to turn.
The hose that carries transmission fluid to a cooler that keeps the fluid from overheating may develop a leak. This can result in transmission failure and the vehicle not moving when commanded.
The driver's side air bag as mounted in the steering wheel may come loose from its mounting. This can increase risk of injury in a crash.
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.
The red reflectors installed in the rear bumper do not meet Federal safety standards. This could lead to reduced visibility of the rear of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
The air bag safety restraint system in the vehicle has a feature that deactivates the passenger side front air bag if it detects a child in the right front seat. This same feature has a programmed flaw, which erroneously illuminates the air bag warning light if a passenger over 240 pounds sits in the right front seat. When the air bag warning light is on, the air bag system is non-functional, which could result in more significant injuries in 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.
On certain vehicles a faulty Automatic Stability Program may cause the vehicle to apply brakes at an inappropriate time, causing loos of control and injury.
