Hyundai recalls over 27,000 Genesis luxury sedans for potential brake issue

2012 Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai has announced a recall on Monday for their 2009-2012 Genesis luxury mid-sized sedans. In all, approximately 27,500 vehicles, which were built from April 1, 2008, through March 16, 2012, will be affected by the latest Hyundai recall. The Genesis sedan is also complemented by the Equus full-size sedan at the top of Hyundai’s vehicle lineup, and shares its name with the lower-end coupe, which is available with four and six-cylinder engines.

The recall concerns the brake fluid. This is in addition to the service campaign, which was initiated by Hyundai back in March of this year, which was performed whenever the owners brought their vehicles in for service. The South Korean automakers estimates that approximately 60 percent of the vehicles have had the fluid change done. This equates to about 40,000 vehicles. The recall was given the green light after a federal investigation was launched concerning 40,000 Genesis sedans from the 2009 model year for the same issue.

The latest Hyundai recall will have the remaining vehicles brought in to the dealership, where authorized technicians will replace the fluid with another type of brake fluid that contains an anti-corrosive additive, at no charge to the owners. Although the recall is expected to begin once the automakers begins to notify the owners starting next month, owners can contact their local Hyundai dealership for more information, or to schedule a service appointment.
