Front Coil Springs Break When Exposed To Road Salt

Recall Details

The front coil springs may fracture from corrosion that occurs due to exposure to road salt. Dealers will replace the front coil springs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

In cold weather states where road salt is used during icy conditions, the front coil springs could corrode and break, resulting in possible contact with a tire and loss of vehicle control.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Hyundai must be performed by a Hyundai dealership. Hyundai will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in November 2015. 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 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.
