Hyundai Motor America Has Recalled 2001 Santa Fe

(SafetyAlerts) -  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 15,241

Manufactured: March 2000 - February 2001

Defect: On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 2.7-liter V-6 engines, improperly manufactured crankshaft position sensors (CPS) were installed. The CPS cases were improperly manufactured and did not meet dimensional specifications. Internal gaps within the cases allowed epoxy to contact the printed circuit board, which resulted in cracking of the circuit board capacitor. A damaged CPS capacitor could result in engine stalling.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the CPS. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V388] .
