Hyundai Recalls 600K Vehicles To Fix Hood Latches, Warning Lights

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Two separate issues, involving a rusty cable and a faulty light, has led to the  recall of 600 thousand Hyundai vehicles.

The largest recall covers more than 437,000 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport SUVs from 2013 to 2017. A cable for the secondary hood latch can corrode and fail to latch. That could let the hood fly up if the primary latch isn’t secured.

Dealers will replace the cable starting June 30.

The second recall posted Thursday by the government covers 161,000 Genesis and Sonata models from 2015 and 2016. The light that shows the parking brake is on may not light due to corrosion in a switch. That could let the cars be driven with the brake on.

Dealers will replace the switch. The recall will start June 30.

WWJ AutoBeat Reporter Jeff Gilbert says there is no word of any injuries related to either issue.
