Hyundai Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 Veloster Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—December 19, 2012.

Summary:  Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2012 Veloster vehicles manufactured from July 2, 2011, through February 27, 2012 and equipped with manual transmissions. Moisture and road grime may cause the parking brake components to bind.

Consequence:  If the parking brake components bind, the parking brake may not operate properly, and the parking brake may drag while driving or may not fully engage when the vehicle is parked. If the parking brake is not fully engaged when parked, a manual transmission may move unintentionally, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:  Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear brake caliper assemblies free of charge. The safety recall will begin during January 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Notes:  Hyundai’s recall campaign number is 107. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
