180,000 Hyundai Tucson SUVs Recalled: Your Next Steps
A recall from Transport Canada is imminent for Hyundai Tucson SUVs in Canada spanning model years 2019. Vehicles involved in the recall could experience an electrical short that may cause the vehicle to catch fire.
Hyundai Canada is issuing a recall campaign for Hyundai Tucson SUVs from 2019. For models involved in the recall, Hyundai reports that the anti-lock braking system (ABS) module circuit board could short circuit. Should the module short circuit, it could result in an engine compartment fire.
A potential fault can happen at any time whether the engine is running or not. It’s recommended that drivers park their vehicles outdoors until the recall is performed.
A recall repair has yet to be formally announced.
There have been around a dozen engine fires reported that are related to the ABS module recall. It isn’t specified whether those fires were in only American models or if any were for Tucson vehicles in Canada.
The recall affects 180,000 SUVs in the U.S. while 26,491 Canadian vehicles are affected by this campaign. Only the 2019 model year Hyundai Tucson is included in the Canadian recall.
What should you do if your tucson was recalled?
Owners can check online to determine if their vehicle is involved in the ABS module recall by entering their VIN in the owners section of the Hyundai Canada website. Recall notices will be issued by the manufacturer with specific instructions to have their vehicle repaired.
If the ABS warning light illuminates in the meantime, owners are urged not to drive their vehicle, contact their Hyundai dealer, and disconnect the 12-volt battery.
