2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls
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.
The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting numerous vehicle systems, many of which can increase the risk of a crash if they fail.
The gross axle weight ratings (GAWR) is incorrect. Overloading the vehicle can affect handling/braking and may cause tire failure.
The trailer towing package on this vehicle is equipped with a wiring harness to provide lighting to a trailer. A module that works with this harness is mounted to the rear bumper reinforcement. This module can short circuit and overheat, causing damage to the bumper cover as well as the wiring harness and module.
The fuel tank on unsold vehicles may have a thickness issue in one of its walls. This could cause a fuel leak, which is a fire hazard.
