RepairPal Expert Overview
The system that monitors tire air pressure to detect when the air becomes too low inside the tires may not be operating properly. If this happens, a driver can unknowingly continue driving on a tire that has low air pressure, increasing risk of an accident.
Recall repairs on your Hyundai must be performed by a Hyundai dealership. Hyundai will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Hyundai dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Hyundai recall number is 159.
The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not have been set in the correct mode during vehicle assembly, and may not detect low tire pressure for tires on the vehicle. Dealers will replace the TPMS sensors free of charge to resolve the concern.
