Summary

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2018 Genesis G80 vehicles.

Remedy

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the OCS, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 24, 2018. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 002G.
