RepairPal Expert Overview
2012 Veloster models equipped with a manual transmission are being recalled because the parking brake may not function correctly.
Hyundai will notify owners of affected vehicles during January, 2013. If you are experiencing problems with the parking brake, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call. The Hyundai recall number is 107.
The rear brakes on the 2012 Veloster contain certain components of the parking brake system. Moisture and road grime that collects on the rear brakes may cause the parking brake components to bind, and potentially fail to work properly. This is only affecting vehicles equipped with manual transmissions. If the parking brake is not fully engaged when parked, the vehicle may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Hyundai dealers will replace both rear brake calipers to correct this concern.
