The Problem: The windshield wiper motor cover seal may degrade, allowing corrosion on the wiper motor’s circuit board, causing intermittent or total loss of wiper function. Inoperative wipers during inclement weather can decrease driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the wiper motor cover and seal for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners on April 22. Owners can contact the automaker at 800-633-5151, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
