Hyundai is recalling certain model-year 2019 Nexo vehicles due to a possible hydrogen leak. The hydrogen fuel inlet receptacle filter could detach after hydrogen refueling and cause a hydrogen fuel leak. A hydrogen fuel leak increases the risk of a fire while driving or parked.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on June 13, 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 hydrogen fuel inlet receptacle. Owners are advised to park outside and away from structures until the recall repair is complete.
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.
