US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 03V257
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 312,292


Summary:
On certain passenger cars and sport utility vehicles, the rear brake tubes pass behind the front suspension crossmember. Two steering gearbox mounting brackets are welded to the crossmember. On vehicles equipped with an antilock brake system (ABS), the rear brake tubes could contact both steering gearbox mounting brackets. On vehicles that are not equipped with ABS, the rear brake tubes may contact only the left mounting bracket. Contact between the rear brake tubes and the steering brackets could cause wear and corrosion that could result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage could result in reduced braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will reposition the rear brake tubes so they do not contact the mounting brackets, install brake tube clips to control the location of the rear brake tubes, and apply anti-corrosion material to the tubes in the areas where contact with the mounting brackets may have occurred. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2003. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

Dates of Manufacture:
June 2000 - February 2003
