Hyundai is recalling approximately 215,170 model-year 2013-2014 Sonata vehicles. The low-pressure fuel hose that connects the low-pressure fuel pump to the direct injection fuel pump may crack over time due to heat generated within the engine compartment. A cracked fuel hose may leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 5, 2022. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 855-371-9460 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the low-pressure fuel hose.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
