Hyundai Recalls More Than 419K Vehicles

DETROIT (AP) — Hyundai is recalling more than 419,000 cars and SUVs to fix suspension, brake and oil leak problems.

The biggest of three recalls posted Friday on a U.S. government website is of 225,000 Santa Fe SUVs from 2001-2006 to replace front coil springs that can rust and crack in cold-weather states.

The Korean automaker also is recalling 133,075 Sonata midsize cars from 2011 because brake fluid can leak and cause increased stopping distances.

And it’s recalling 61,122 Veracruz SUVs because oil can leak onto the alternator, causing it to fail. That could cause the engine to stall.

Hyundai says the problems haven’t caused any crashes or injuries. The recalls are expected to start by the end of September.
