Hyundai Issues Another Round of Recalls for Their Popular Tucson SUV Model
The Hyundai Corporation is experiencing a rough start to their new year after announcing a recall over the weekend for over 471,000 of its well-known Hyundai Tucson model due to a dangerous electrical short in the SUV’s anti-lock brake system computer which can malfunction internally and cause a fire within the cab of the vehicle. Owners have been told to park outside until they’re able to have the defect repaired by a certified mechanic.
In a statement released to the press and multiple media outlets, the Hyundai Corporation issued a massive recall for their Hyundai Tucson sports utility vehicle for the years of 2016-2018 & 2020-2021. This latest recall is an extension of a recall that the company issued back in September 2020 which covered 180,000 SUVs for the same exact issues: an electrical short in the vehicle’s computer system. According to the company, they have been made aware of “about a dozen or so fires” that have occurred, but that no injuries were reported. They go on to state that owners will be notified by early February if their SUV has been affected by the recall, and will be informed on which local dealership will provide a replacement fuse for the computer. Additionally, you can visit Hyundai’s Safety Recalls & Service website here to enter your vehicle identification number to see if your SUV falls under the company’s recall.
The automobile industry is no stranger when it comes to issuing recalls, although it always seems to be the consumer that pays the price in the end. Faulty and defective auto parts can lead to a wide range of dangerous situations for the owners and drivers of these vehicles, and the Hyundai Corporation should be grateful that no one has been seriously injured or killed due to their negligent/sloppy manufacturing and production process.
