Hyundai is recalling 16,104 model-year 2022 Tucson and 2022-2023 Santa Cruz vehicles. The roof moldings may detach and could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on April 1, 2023. 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 fix the problem, dealers will inspect and replace, or secure the roof moldings, as necessary.
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.
