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.

Hyundai issues third Genesis fire recall 

Fountain Valley, CA – April 12, 2024 – Hyundai (OTCMKTS:HYMTF), which owns the Genesis brand, is recalling 28,439 cars that may catch fire due to an oil leak. The defect ups the risk of a crash and injury. 

The affected models, all of which are equipped with a turbocharged 3.3-liter engine, include:

  • 2019 – 2022 Genesis G70
  • 2018 – 2020 Genesis G80
  • 2017 – 2022 Genesis G90

This recall serves as an expansion and replacement of a previous one done due to the same issue. Vehicles that were repaired back in 2019 will need a new remedy. 

Some of the affected vehicles are also subject to another fire-related recall.

Recall summary

The V6 engines in the listed cars are equipped with a pair of turbochargers, which helps them develop more power. Turbochargers run smoothly thanks to engine oil which is delivered to them through a metal pipe.

In the affected vehicles, long-term heat exposure can turn the pipe for the left-hand charger brittle, causing it to develop an oil leak, which may lead to a fire.

Recall risks

All associated risks are described in the recent Kia recall, which was caused by the same issue

Warning signs

The occupants may notice a strong “burning smell,” smoke coming from under the hood and “oil leaking onto the ground surfaces.”

Background of the recall

The affected vehicles were previously recalled in July 2019. On that occasion, the oil pipes were replaced but were later found not to be sturdy enough, leading to the present recall.

Other Hyundai recalls

Over the past couple of years, Hyundai and its sister company Kia have recalled several million of cars due to non-crash fires. The latest edition came last month when Hyundai recalled over 90,000 cars – including some of the ones involved in the present recall – due to the risk of fire even when they were parked and switched off.

Separately, Hyundai and Kia are currently being investigated by the U.S. government, which is looking to evaluate the adequacy of the existing recalls and see if more cars need to be recalled.

The repair

Dealers will replace the left-hand oil feed pipe with an upgraded one free of charge. 

Owners should receive letters with more information on May 7, 2024.

Hyundai recalls Genesis cars that may catch fire

Fountain Valley, CA – April 26, 2021 – Hyundai Motor Company  (NASDAQ:HYMTF) has recalled 94,646 vehicles, due to a short circuit risk in the anti-lock brake system (ABS). The short circuit risk may cause a fire,  increasing the risk of a crash.

The component in question is the hydraulic controller for the ABS, with part numbers 58920-B1010, and 58920-B1110. The recall includes the following vehicles:

  • 2015 Hyundai Genesis
  • 2017 Hyundai Genesis
  • 2017 – 2020 Hyundai Genesis G80 

Recall summary  

The ABS module prevents the wheels from locking, which helps the driver maintain steering control when the brakes are applied. In recalled cars, the ABS module may short-circuit, resulting in an “engine compartment fire,” when the vehicle is parked or while driving.

A small number of Genesis G70 vehicles are being recalled for the same issue under a separate recall. Hyundai Genesis SUVs are not part of either recall.

Warning signs

For warning signs, please see our article about a recent Hyundai Kona recall for fire risk.


If an engine fire occurs, pull over, move all of the occupants away from the vehicle and call 911. For more information, see this article about a hybrid BMW recall

Safety tips

As in other fire-related recalls, you should park your vehicle “away from structures,” such as your home, other buildings or a garage until it is repaired.

Other Hyundai and Kia fire recalls

This recall is the latest in the long string of Hyundai and Kia fire-related recalls. In March, Hyundai recalled over 4,500 electric vehicles with lithium-ion batteries that resulted in multiple fires and at least two rounds of recalls outside the U.S. In January, the manufacturer expanded an old recall of Hyundai Tucson vehicles because of a component of the ABS system that could result in the unit short-circuiting.

In December, Kia – which is part-owned by Hyundai – recalled close to 300,000 vehicles due to a risk of engine fire. No clear cause has been identified.

The repair

To fix the issue, dealers will replace the ABS module fuse. The repair is free and the recall is expected to begin May 7, 2021.
