What is a Hyundai Recall?

A recall is when a manufacturer discovers an imperfection that exists in one of their vehicle models. There are emergency recalls and non-emergency recalls.

An emergency recall could be a fault with something like the engine or brakes that could cause an accident. A non-emergency recall could be something like the speaker system or the seat warmers. In most cases, just a part is recalled. In extremely rare cases, it’s the entire vehicle.

You are typically informed about a Hyundai recall from the dealership where you bought your Hyundai vehicle.
