Exclamation Hyundai recalls 437,400 Santa Fe's for hoods that may open while driving

Quote:
Hyundai recalls 437,400 SUVs for hoods that may open while driving

The issue relates to the secondary hood latch, which is the one that's released when you pop the hood -- the primary latch is the one you have to fish for. The actuating cable for the secondary latch may corrode and bind, and if it does, the secondary latch will remain unlatched, even if the hood is closed.

Obviously, this presents a big ol' safety hazard. The primary latch cannot be relied upon to keep the hood closed at all times, so there's a chance that the hood might open while the vehicle is in motion, provided the secondary latch is incapable of doing its job. Not only can the hood get in the way of forward visibility, it can smash the windshield if it contacts it with enough force.

Hyundai will inspect every recalled vehicle and replace the secondary hood latch cable. As with all other recall-related work, it'll be free for the consumer. Hyundai expects the recall to begin on June 30.

The two recalls affect the Hyundai Santa Fe, Santa Fe Sport, Sonata and Genesis models.


The first and larger of the two recalls affects the 2013-2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport crossovers, and involves a faulty cable for the secondary hood latch.


Hyundai says the faulty cable could corrode and prevent the hood from latching. The recall affects a total of 437,400 units and the Korean automaker clarified the safety risk only applied if the hood is not properly closed. Automotive News reports Hyundai began investigating the issue at the end of last year, and a production fix was applied on the Santa Fe in June 2016 to fix it. Hyundai is currently looking into why an announcement about the defect was not made earlier.

The problem occurs more frequently in salt belt states where large quantities of salt are used during the winter season.

The Tucson had a similar recall. Really not a big deal as no one should be driving with the primary latch not engaged.

2014 Elantra Sport 2.0 6M Shimmering Silver. LED interior lights, cargo mat and net. 35/20% tint. LED tag and back up lights. LED fogs. LED headlights, homelink.
2016 Tucson Sport 1.6T 7A Caribbean Blue. Hitch, tint, mudguards, homelink, cargo cover, LED back up and tag lights, power pass seat lumbar installed, LED fogs, aftermarket crossbars for the roof.

Problem is, out Hyundais probably took another hit in the resale value dept.

Of course, that means picking up a used one just became easier. I wonder how much a Genny Coupe with 30,000 miles is now...

Do you know any satisfying profanity?!

I find it interesting that this latest recall is being done to all relevant vehicles - not just the ones in geographies where incidents of corrosion are higher. So like GM and others (toyota) could it be possible that Hyundai is at last figuring out that they can run but not hide from the strict safety regulations in the US market ?

I think the potential biggest hit to resale may come when the NHSTA concludes it's investigation into the engine issue - noticing the recent post here saying in the KIA sportage recall letter that now the failures can be caused by machining defects in the crankpins, seems obvious IMO that Hyundai/Kia was hiding the real source of the issue, wonder if they know how many engines are defective and prone to failure. And what sort of test process can be performed to effectively determine the engines with defects - hopefully it's not all of the engines.

If I were a betting man I'd lay down big bucks that in the US they will be hit with a large fine for not revealing what is considered to be a safety defect.

Actually this one may have been intentional

Engine under 162 recall grenades, blows some random part upwards. Defective hood latch allows ejected part to escape from engine compartment without damaging hood or paint.

Hyundai claims it is a safety feature
