Vehicles Affected: Approximately 6,000 model-year 2016-17 Hyundai Tucson SUVs manufactured between May 19, 2015, and Nov. 14, 2016, and model-year 2017 Santa Fe SUVs manufactured between Nov. 28, 2015, and Nov. 14, 2016

The Problem: An accessory trailer hitch wiring harness may have a malfunctioning tow-hitch module, which could result in a trailer’s brake lights being constantly illuminated while in use, possibly confusing other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the accessory trailer hitch wiring harness for free.
