Naturally, all car owners who have vehicles that can be included in this recall will be notified by Hyundai and will have to take their cars to dealers in order to deal with this problem. Owners will be notified by the end of September. The springs will be replaced for free, in all cases.
Fortunately for Hyundai and owners of its vehicles, no crashes or injuries have been linked to this problem, at least for now. Hyundai will replace the springs in order to solve the issue. The company claims to be quite effective in making sure that the owners of its cars will be as safe as possible.
