Recall 15V097000

Improper Gear Selection Displayed On Instrument Panel

Recall Details

When shifting the transmission shift lever to a desired gear, that gear may not show up properly in the instrument panel display. This could lead to an unintended gear being selected. The cause is water intrusion into the combination lamp housing. Dealers will apply pads to prevent water intrusion into the combination lamp housing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The gear selected by the driver when shifting the transmission shift lever may not show properly in the instrument panel. This can cause the vehicle to move in an unintended direction when driving.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Hyundai must be performed by a Hyundai dealership. Hyundai notified owners of affected vehicles in early 2015. If you did 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 uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
