01/15/18 Hyundai motor company (hyundai) is recalling certain 2013-2014 elantra sedan, coupe and gt vehicles. the brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released. this will allow the brake lights to remain illuminated continuously. it can also allow the shift lever to be moved without depressing the brake pedal, or activate the engine management brake pedal override feature.

If the brake light switch plunger does not retract as it should when the brake pedal is not being pressed, the brake lights may stay illuminated preventing accurate communication to following vehicles that the vehicle is slowing or stopping. additionally, if the brake switch plunger is not retracted, then the transmission can be shifted out of park without depressing the brake pedal. either condition increases the risk of a crash.

A higher pressure deployment than intended increases the risk of injury resulting from airbag deployment.

Dealers will reprogram the air bag control module free of charge. the safety recall is expecting to begin during april 2011. owners may contact hyundai's customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151.

The front passenger air bag could deploy in crashes in which it should not deploy, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant from the deployed air bag.

Dealers will install a protective cover over the weight classification system connector to prevent contamination. this service will be performed free of charge. the safety recall is expecting to begin during april 2011. owners may contact hyundai's customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151.

Hyundai Elantra Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
