In Canada and the US, Hyundai Motors North America has recalled 63,128 vehicles for safety reasons. 11,120 of the recalled cars are in Canada, according to Jennifer McCarthy, a company spokesman. The Idle Stop & Go System (ISG) transmission electronic oil pump has a problem that might cause a fire, thus the cars are being recalled as a precaution.
The recall affects the model years 2023–204 Hyundai Palisade as well as the 2023 Tucson, Sonata, Elantra, and Kona cars produced for sale in the United States and Canada.
Owners of the impacted vehicles can continue to drive them, according to McCarthy, but they are encouraged to park them outdoors and away from buildings until the recall fix is being implemented.
According to Hyundai, the recall affects 52,008 vehicles made for the U.S. market and 11,120 vehicles made for sale in Canada.
Owners of these automobiles are still permitted to operate them, according to the business. Nevertheless, it is advised that they leave them outside and away from buildings until the required recall solution is carried out.
First-class mail notices will be sent to all owners of the affected cars, instructing them to take their cars to a Hyundai dealer for an examination and perhaps a replacement of the electronic oil pump controller, as specified in the notice.
Hyundai claims that all customers impacted by the recall will receive this remedy at no cost.
Hyundai asserts that during manufacture, there may have been damage to the oil pump utilized for the Idle Stop & Go System (ISG) in the recalled vehicles. This harm causes heat-related problems that affect the circuit board, connection, and wire harness of the electric oil pump. The likelihood of a car fire increases due to this heat damage.
However, according to Hyundai, neither in Canada nor the United States have there been any documented instances of accidents or injuries linked to this problem.
Customers also can input their vehicle identification number (VIN) at Recalls.HyundaiCanada.com to determine if their vehicle is impacted.
