Just received an email from HYUNDAIMOTORS regarding this recall:


What is the problem?


Moisture can enter your Azera's ABS (anti-lock brake system) electrical system. Over time the moisture can cause a short circuit inside the ABS module, increasing the risk of an engine compartment fire.


What will Hyundai do?


Your Hyundai dealer will install a relay into your Azera's ABS module electrical circuit. This procedure will be performed at NO COST to you. For your safety, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
