Problem Summary: HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY (HYUNDAI) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 ACCENT AND TUCSON, MODEL YEAR 2007-2010 ELANTRA, MODEL YEAR 2007-2011 SANTA FE, MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 VERACRUZ, MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 GENESIS COUPE, AND MODEL YEAR 2011 SONATA VEHICLES. THE STOP LAMP SWITCH IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES MAY MALFUNCTION. A MALFUNCTIONING STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY CAUSE THE BRAKE LIGHTS TO NOT ILLUMINATE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED OR MAY CAUSE AN INABILITY TO DEACTIVATE THE CRUISE CONTROL BY DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL. ADDITIONALLY, A MALFUNCTIONING STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY ALSO RESULT IN INTERMITTENT OPERATION OF THE PUSH-BUTTON START FEATURE, AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE BRAKE-TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK FEATURE, PREVENTING THE SHIFTER FROM BEING MOVED OUT OF THE PARK POSITION AND CAUSE THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) MALFUNCTION LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE.

Consequence: FAILURE TO ILLUMINATE THE STOP LAMPS DURING BRAKING OR INABILITY TO DISENGAGE THE CRUISE CONTROL COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. ADDITIONALLY, WHEN THE IGNITION IS IN THE 'ON' POSITION, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTER MAY BE ABLE TO BE MOVED OUT OF PARK WITHOUT FIRST APPLYING THE BRAKE. THIS MAY LEAD TO UNINTENTIONAL MOVEMENT OF THE CAR WHICH MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Recall Number: 11V179000

Recall Date: 03/15/2011

Component: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE

Problem Summary: HYUNDAI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2008 ELANTRA VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 14, 2006, THROUGH AUGUST 29, 2007. THE DRIVER'S SEAT TRACK POSITION SENSOR DETERMINES THE SEAT'S FORE AND AFT POSITION AND ALLOWS THE DRIVER'S FRONTAL AIR BAG TO DEPLOY AT THE PRESSURE APPROPRIATE FOR THAT SEATING POSITION, WITH A LOWER PRESSURE DEPLOYMENT IN THE MOST FORWARD SEATING POSITIONS. THE AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE MAY RECEIVE AN UNSTABLE ELECTRICAL SIGNAL FROM THE SEAT TRACK POSITION SENSOR SUCH THAT, IN A CRASH THAT REQUIRES DRIVER FRONTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT, THE DRIVER'S AIRBAG MAY DEPLOY AT THE HIGHER PRESSURE THAN INTENDED IF THE SEAT WAS POSITION IN ONE OF THE FORWARD POSITIONS IN WHICH A LOWER PRESSURE DEPLOYMENT IS INTENDED.

Consequence: A HIGHER PRESSURE DEPLOYMENT THAN INTENDED INCREASES THE RISK OF INJURY RESULTING FROM AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT.

What Owners Should Do: DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTING TO BEGIN DURING APRIL 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI'S CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-633-5151.

Recall Number: 11V143000

Recall Date: 03/15/2011

Component: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE

Problem Summary: HYUNDAI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 ELANTRA VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 14, 2006, THROUGH NOVEMBER 1, 2008.
