Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,300 model-year 2016 Hyundai Tucson SUVs manufactured between May 26, 2015, and Jan. 15, 2016, and equipped with an accessory trailer hitch harness either included with the accessory trailer hitch or sold as a service part

The Problem: When the engine is running and the brake lights are illuminated, if the turn signal is activated, the trailer turn signal lights will either turn off or remain continuously illuminated and fail to flash; this would prevent the communication of the driver’s intent, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the tow hitch harness for free.

What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners May 6. Owners can call the automaker at 800-633-515, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
