Recall Alert : Hyundai 2013 Elantra

RECALL Subject : Brake Pedal Stopper Pad Deterioration

Report Receipt Date: AUG 02, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V574000
Component(s): SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 64,500


Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America

SUMMARY:

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model 2013 Elantra vehicles manufactured December 1, 2012, to April 30, 2013. The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released.
CONSEQUENCE:
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.
REMEDY:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad with an improved part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on September 30, 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 146.
