40,000 Elantra HEV vehicles included in the Hyundai recalls 2023 list! In a move that underscores their commitment to safety and customer satisfaction, Hyundai has initiated a recall of nearly 40,000 Elantra HEV vehicles due to a software issue that could pose potential risks on the road.
The recall, which covers specific 2021-2023 Elantra HEV models totaling 37,997, comes in response to a recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report.
Hyundai recalls 2023: Software glitch sparks concerns
The heart of the issue lies in a software glitch that can inadvertently lead to unintended acceleration after releasing the brake pedal. This glitch, although rare, increases the chances of a collision and, subsequently, prompts Hyundai to take proactive measures.
Concerned car owners need not fret, as Hyundai has streamlined the process to address the situation. To provide a hassle-free solution, Hyundai will be sending out notification letters to affected owners by October 17th. These notices will guide customers to their nearest Hyundai dealership, where a dedicated team of professionals will update the motor control unit software at no cost. This proactive step will rectify the software glitch, mitigating any potential risks associated with unintended acceleration.
Hyundai’s customer-centric approach shines through in their commitment to promptly address concerns. Owners who have queries or require assistance can directly reach out to Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. The recall number assigned to this particular action is 248, making it easier for customers to get the support they need.
Beyond the Elantra HEV recall
However, Hyundai’s dedication to safety doesn’t end with the Elantra HEV recall. In an equally proactive move earlier this month, the company recalled 52,008 vehicles, including the 2023-2024 Palisade SUVs and the 2023 Tucson, Sonata, Elantra, and Kona models. This action, prompted by an NHTSA report, focuses on addressing a potential issue with the Idle Stop & Go oil pump assembly.
To ensure their customers’ safety, Hyundai advises owners to park these vehicles outside and away from structures until the necessary repairs are complete.
The road ahead
As Hyundai navigates through these recall actions, their dedication to customer safety remains steadfast. The timely response to identified concerns highlights their commitment to proactively rectify any potential issues, ensuring that their vehicles continue to deliver the performance, reliability, and peace of mind that Hyundai owners have come to expect.
In a rapidly evolving automotive landscape, Hyundai’s recalls serve as a testament to their proactive stance, putting safety and customer satisfaction at the forefront of their priorities. These actions underscore Hyundai’s commitment to excellence and ensure that drivers can continue to enjoy their vehicles with confidence, knowing that their well-being is paramount to the brand.
