Hyundai, in an official communication, has announced a recall of 2437 units of its flagship SUV Santa Fe in India. The issue according to the company is with the Stop Lamp Switch.
Only vehicles from the 2011 batch manufactured between 26th June 2011 to September 2013 are involved in this recall and the owners of these vehicles will be called in a phased manner across the nation by the company.
Hyundai says, the Stop Lamp Switch on these vehicles has a potential to malfunction. Not overseeing this, it will be changed free of cost, however, the total time required is not mentioned, and we believe it will not be long.
So, this is the older-gen Santa Fe which has been affected by this recall and Hyundai urges all the affected owners to take the vehicle only to the authorized service dealers.
The first-generation of the Santa Fe was launched in India in 2010 and it was about an average seller. Hyundai replaced it with the new Santa Fe in February this year which starts at 26.3 Lakhs ex-showroom Delhi and comes with an automatic & manual gearbox and gets both 2WD and 4WD.
