Hyundai issues umpteenth Genesis recall

Fountain Valley, CA – May 24, 2024 – Hyundai (OTCMKTS:HYMTF), which owns the Genesis brand, is recalling 31,440 cars and SUVs that may stall. This ups the risk of crash and injury, especially if it happens in fast-moving traffic. 

The recall is Hyundai’s fourth recall for the brand in the last couple of months. It also comes on the back on hundreds of stalling incidents and serves as an expansion of another recall conducted for the same issue last year.

The list of the affected models includes: 

  • 2022 – 2023 Genesis G80
  • 2022 – 2023 Genesis G90
  • 2022 – 2023 Genesis GV70
  • 2022 – 2023 Genesis GV80

Recall summary

The affected vehicles’ fuel pump may jam and shut down due to excessive internal resistance caused by incorrectly manufactured moving parts. This would leave the engine without fuel supply and cause the car to stall.  

Recall risks

Stalling in fast-moving traffic can augment the risk of injury.

Background of the recall 

Hyundai conducted the original recall for the issue in September of last year. Subsequently, the manufacturer became aware of additional affected vehicles which led to the present recall.

Between July 2022 and February 2024, Hyundai received 463 reports of stalling “incidents.”  No injuries or crashes have been reported.

Other Hyundai Genesis recalls

Some of these vehicles may have been affected by a fire-related recall, which took place last month.

On a separate note, transmission issues that may result in a rollaway were the cause of another recent Genesis recall.    

Electric models are not immune to problems, either, with almost 100,000 Hyundai and Genesis EVs being affected by a recall, which was also caused by a risk of stalling.  

The repair

Dealers will replace the fuel pump free of charge.

Owners will be notified on June 18, 2024.
