Vehicles Affected: Approximately 429,700 model-year 2006-11 Hyundai Elantra sedans and model-year 2007-11 Hyundai Elantra Touring wagons
The Problem: Moisture may enter the antilock brake system module and result in an electrical short, which may cause an engine compartment fire even when the car is turned off, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will install a relay in the vehicle’s main junction box to prevent the risk of an ABS short circuit while the car is turned off for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners of the recall April 3. Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
