Potential Charging System Fault

An engine oil leak from the front valve cover gasket could result in enough oil leaking onto the alternator to cause its failure. An alternator failure will cause the charging system warning light to illuminate. Driving the vehicle in this condition for a unknown period of time will result in the engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the alternator and front valve cover gasket as necessary to correct this concern.

The Brake Light Switch May Fail Prematurely

The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

The Driver's Airbag May Not Deploy as Designed

The clock spring electrical contact for the driver's airbag may become damaged through normal usage over time. The electrical circuit will experience a high resistance condition and in the event of a crash, the driver's airbag will not deploy, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the contact assembly as necessary to correct this condition. The Hyundai recall number is 103.

My recommendation - Buy North ...
I have owned my VeraCruz Limited for two years. The car has been great. Quite ride, smooth transmition. I have had problems with the settings for controlling the power seats and tilt steering wheel. The dealer replaced under warranty the unit controlling both in the steering column at 27,000 miles. Steering is a little sloppy and doesn't give a firm feel of the road. Some minor squeeks in ...
