IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL
Dear Hyundai Santa Fe owner:
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Hyundai has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2013 model year front wheel drive Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vehicles equipped with 2.4 liter engines that were produced through March 12, 2013. Our records indicate that your vehicle falls within this production date range.
What is the problem?
- Hyundai has determined that on certain 2013 model year front wheel drive Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vehicles equipped with 2.4 liter engines, the right front axle shaft may fracture. A fractured front axle may result in a loss of power to the wheels. Additionally, if the vehicle is parked without the parking brake applied, it may roll away. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
What will Hyundai do?
- The right front axle shaft will be replaced with a new axle shaft assembly. This procedure will be performed at no charge to you. The actual time required to perform the procedure will take approximately 1 hour, however your vehicle may be needed longer depending on the dealer’s work load; therefore, we recommend scheduling a service appointment to minimize inconvenience.
