Hyundai is recalling greater than 26,000 Velosters constructed between 2012 and 2013 over considerations their parking sensors may brief circuit, growing the danger of a fireplace.
A recall printed on the Nationwide Freeway Visitors Security Administration’s web site says a “excessive conductive liquid” could leak into the Veloster’s reverse parking sensor module, brief circuiting the system and posing a fireplace danger.
A complete of 26,169 Velosters constructed between 2012 and 2013 are affected, says the recall. Whereas there aren’t any reviews of crashes or accidents, Hyundai has obtained 5 reviews of fires associated to the issue, based on Client Reviews.
Fortunately, there’s already a treatment in place. Sellers will exchange the reverse parking assist sensor fuse freed from cost in affected autos. House owners are anticipated to be mailed notifications alerting them of the issue on April 29. In the event you assume your automobile could also be affected, head on over to the NHTSA’s web site and punch in your VIN.
