Hyundai is recalling 187,000 vehicles but says the "root cause" of five 2.0L Nu MPI engine fires is still undetermined.
Just a hunch, but it might have something to do with connecting rods blasting holes in the engine block allowing oil to leak out onto hot surfaces where it smolders into a flame.…keep reading article "Hyundai Recalls 187,000 Vehicles For Potential Engine Fires in the 2.0L Nu MPI Engine"

A sunroof isn’t supposed to close when it detects an object in the way.
However there’s an issue in the way the 2018 Elantra GT’s sunroof motor was programmed that could turn it into a slow, dull, but strong guillotine.
The system won't detect if a finger, head or other objects are in the way of the closing glass and won't immediately retract.
Resist the urge to stick your head out of the sunroof until the recall begins in February 2019. Actually, just go ahead and resist that urge in general.keep reading article "Elantra GT’s Sunroof Motor Recalled for Being World’s Slowest Guillotine"
A previous brake switch recall has been expanded to include over 390,000 Elantras from the 2013 and 2014 model years.
Hyundai noticed an increased warranty claim rate for Elantras that weren't included in the 2016 recall. Brake pedal stopper pads were collected from the vehicles that were built between 2012 and 2014.
The brake pedal stopper pad sits between the brake light switch and the brake pedal arm. Hyundai issued a recall last year after discovering the stopper pad was deteriorating, allowing the brake lights to stay on even when the pedal wasn’t being pressed.
Turns out that recall didn’t reach far enough.keep reading article "Last Year's Elantra Brake Pedal Stop Pad Recall Has Been Explanded"

An internal investigation into the 2017 Sonata’s power brakes was opened by Hyundai following four complaints from owners.
Hyundai was notified in December 2016 that a supplier was receiving an increase of orders for replacement brake boosters for 2017 Elantras … The supplier determined the diaphragm in the brake booster may come loose and cause a vacuum leak.
Without the power assist, it becomes much harder for owners to press the brake pedal prompting the recall of 33,800 Sonatas. The affected cars were built in Alabama from September 12, 2016, through January 18, 2017.keep reading article "Sudden Loss of Power Braking Forces a Recall in the 2017 Sonata"
