Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


00V259
Certain Sonata vehicles equipped with 2.5 liter V-6 engines and all Elantra vehicles may experience intermittent low-speed engine stalling, which occurs if the MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor electrical signal is interrupted as a result of engine vibration transmitted to the MAF Sensor connector wiring harness. This condition can increase the risk of a crash.
Dealers will re-route the MAF Sensor connector wiring harness. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


99V178
Passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. The automatic transmission pressure control solenoid valve seals can allow transmission fluid to leak. This leakage can result in reduced pressure application to the clutches, brake, and kickdown servo, allowing them to slip. This slippage causes the vehicle not to accelerate, or not accelerate as expected, when the driver presses the accelerator pedal.
Dealers will replace the pressure control solenoid valve. Owner notification was scheduled to begin during July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-829-9956.

Component not known


00V332
On certain passenger vehicles, the supplemental restraint system side air bag satellite sensors were improperly manufactured, causing the air bag warning light to illuminate and the side air bags to not deploy as intended in the event of a crash. Non-deployment of the side air bags could increase the risk of injury during a crash.
Dealers will replace the vehicle's two satellite sensors. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 30, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


03V257
On certain passenger cars and sport utility vehicles, the rear brake tubes pass behind the front suspension crossmember. Two steering gearbox mounting brackets are welded to the crossmember. On vehicles equipped with an antilock brake system (ABS), the rear brake tubes could contact both steering gearbox mounting brackets. On vehicles that are not equipped with ABS, the rear brake tubes may contact only the left mounting bracket. Contact between the rear brake tubes and the steering brackets could cause wear and corrosion that could result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage could result in reduced braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will reposition the rear brake tubes so they do not contact the mounting brackets, install brake tube clips to control the location of the rear brake tubes, and apply anti-corrosion material to the tubes in the areas where contact with the mounting brackets may have occurred. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2003. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Component not known


97V026000
The windshield wiper motor circuit breaker electrical contacts were contaminated during assembly.
This condition reduces the electrical continuity, particularly at low amperage, and can prevent the windshield wiper motor from operating. Inoperative windshield wipers can contribute to reduced visibility during inclement weather, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Dealers will remove the contaminants from the windshield wiper motor circuit breaker contacts.
