2009-'12 Hyundai Genesis Recalled To Replace Brake Fluid


Just the Facts:
  • Hyundai is recalling approximately 27,500 Hyundai Genesis sedans in the U.S. to replace the brake fluid.
  • The brake fluid contains an anticorrosive additive and will address potential durability issues with the brake system's Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit in those vehicles.
  • The recall begins in November.

COSTA MESA, California — Hyundai is recalling approximately 27,500 Hyundai Genesis sedans in the U.S. to replace the brake fluid, the automaker told Edmunds.

The brake fluid contains an anticorrosive additive and will address potential durability issues with the brake system's Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit in those vehicles.

The affected vehicles were built from April 1, 2008 through March 16, 2012.

"Hyundai previously initiated a service campaign in March of 2013 to replace the brake fluid in the subject vehicle population," the automaker said in a statement. "Approximately 60 percent of the affected population range has already been completed."

On Monday, Hyundai received word that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had opened an investigation into an estimated 40,000 Genesis sedans from the 2009 model year. At that point, the automaker decided to recall the rest of the cars.

NHTSA opened the probe after receiving 23 consumer complaints alleging reduced brake effectiveness. One reported crash has been linked to the investigation.

Hyundai dealers will inspect the brake system and change the brake fluid with replacement fluid. Owners can contact Hyundai at 1-734-337-9499.

Edmunds says: Hyundai says if a customer wishes to have the dealer inspect their vehicle and perform the repair before receiving the recall letter, they can contact their Hyundai dealer to schedule an appointment.
