Vehicles Affected: Approximately 218 model-year 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric hatchbacks
The Problem: Manufacturing defects within the electric power control unit may allow coolant to contact the unit’s circuit board, causing a stall and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the EPCU, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners Sept. 29. Owners can call the automaker at 800-633-5151, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
