Ottawa, ON. – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Hyundai models.
Units Affected - 1,593
On certain vehicles, the panoramic sunroof glass may have been damaged during an automated assembly procedure at the factory. This damage may result in subsequent fracture of the sunroof glass. Sunroof glass panel breakage, while the vehicle is in motion, could cause driver distraction, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Additionally, broken glass inside the vehicle poses a risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the panoramic sunroof glass assembly.
Units Affected - 1,565
On certain vehicles, infiltration of moisture and road grime into the parking brake mechanism may eventually lead to corrosion and failure. As such, this may result in rear brake noise, the parking brake not releasing, or the inability to properly apply the parking brake. Should the vehicle be parked on a sufficient slope, the inability to apply the parking brake could result in unintended vehicle movement, which could cause a crash resulting in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the rear brake caliper assemblies.
