Hyundai recalls Elantra to fix stability control system in the US

Hyundai recalls Elantra to fix stability control system in the US

Hyundai Motor America announced that they are recalling 1,55,000 examples of certain model year Elantras manufactured from 29 October 2010 to 25 October 2011. Due to an electronic stability control (ESC) sensor malfunction.

The malfunction causes the brakes for one or more wheels to be applied unexpectedly and the engine power is reduced. They said that the symptoms were accompanied by illumination of the ESC indicator lamp in the instrument cluster. The ESC malfunction could cause one or more brakes to be applied incorrectly which could lead to an accident.

The fifth-generation Hyundai Elantra for the US market is built at the Hyundai factory in Alabama, USA. While the ones for the Indian market are built at Hyundai India’s Chennai factory. The Elantras also have completely different specifications. This means the chance for the Indian models to be affected are slim. Nevertheless, we will wait to hear from Hyundai if the Indian Elantra is affected by the malfunction.

The fifth generation Hyundai Elantra will soon be replaced by the all-new sixth generation model in India, read more about that here.
