Brake Issue Prompts 2017 Hyundai Elantra Recall

Brake Issue Prompts 2017 Hyundai Elantra Recall

Hyundai is recalling about 34,000 vehicles to fix a potentially serious braking issue that could increase the risk of a crash.

The call involves the 34,000 model-year 2017 Hyundai Elantra sedans. The automaker says there is a potential problem with the brake booster that was improperly manufactured. It could fail and result in the loss of a power brake assist. If that happens, it could take longer for drivers to bring their vehicle to a stop.

Hyundai says it hasn’t received any reports of crashes.

Recall notices went out on February 6th and dealers will replace the brake system assembly for free.
