Certain Tucson vehicles may have an increased risk of an electrical short circuit within the ABS (brake) module when it is exposed to moisture, which in turn can lead to an increased risk of an engine compartment fire.
If your vehicle is affected, Hyundai will be in touch to ask you to visit your authorised Hyundai dealer, such as John Hughes. The recall applies to certain Tucson models made for the Australian market between 2015 and 2021. You can check whether it is affected by entering your VIN into the Hyundai safety recall checker here.
There have been no incidents of fires in Australia related to this recall issue. However, despite this, it is important for Hyundai to instigate the recall to ensure your safety. You can continue to drive your vehicle, however as an added precaution you may wish to park your Tucson away from structures e.g. not in a garage. If your vehicle displays an engine warning light, please stop driving and contact John Hughes Hyundai.
Unfortunately due to a parts supply delay, Hyundai cannot repair your Tucson immediately. As soon as parts are available, Hyundai will be in touch. We are expecting the arrival of parts by the end of February.
