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.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners on Jan. 13. Owners can call the automaker at 800-633-5151 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
