Hyundai Has Recalled the 2001-2002 Santa Fe

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

Models: Hyundai Santa Fe Year: 2001-2002

Number Involved: 25,643

Dates of Manufacture: March 2000 – August 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 was expected
to begin during February 2003. (This recall is an expansion of a previous recall, 01V388). Owners may
contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

[NHTSA Recall No. 03V030/Hyundai Recall No. 049].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
