Recall 15V756000

Rear Differential Mounting Fasteners Loose

Recall Details

The rear differential and rear suspension cross member may not have been aligned properly during vehicle assembly. This could result in the loosening of the fasteners which secure the rear differential to its mounting. Dealers will verify the proper assembly of the differential free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The fasteners that secure the rear differential to it's mounting position may loosen due to a misalignment of components upon vehicle assembly. This can cause the drive shaft to disconnect from the differential and result in a loss of vehicle acceleration and risk of undercarriage damage or an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Hyundai must be performed by a Hyundai dealership. Hyundai will notify owners of affected vehicles in January, 2016. 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. The Hyundai recall number is 135.
