Hyundai Santa Fe Voluntary Recall

Hyundai Santa Fe Voluntary Recall

Hyundai Motor Company has announced a voluntary recall of the Hyundai Santa Fe. This is a precautionary measure in order to inspect all potentially affected models and rectify the fault if found.

The recall applies to Santa Fe models produced between September 1, 2009 and December 13, 2011 that are equipped with the 145kW/436Nm R-Series 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine.

The recall relates to the affected models having insufficient clearance between the engine cover assembly and fuel return hose, which if left unattended could result in interference between these components. If an extended period of interference occurs it may result in a fuel leak.

Recalled vehicles will be inspected for wear on the engine hoses, with all worn hoses being replaced. All vehicles will have a clip fitted to the diesel return hose to act as an extra barrier to protect against contact between the hose and the engine cover. The service will be completed in less than 30 minutes if the fuel hose needs to be replaced, and less time if no wear is present.

The recall is a precautionary measure and only affects 1700 vehicles in New Zealand.

Hyundai New Zealand is contacting all affected Santa Fe owners directly to arrange a suitable time for their vehicle to be inspected. Further information is also available on the website (www.hyundai.co.nz) and there is a dedicated phone line (0800 498 632) for any customers who wish to discuss this prior to Hyundai contacting them early next week.
