Defect SummaryHyundai is recalling 3,387 trailer hitch wiring harnesses either included with a trailer hitch or sold as a service part manufactured by thule towing systems and distributed by hyundai for installation on my 2007-2008 santa fe and veracruz vehicles. the accessory trailer hitch wiring harness converter module is mounted to the top surface of the rear bumper reinforcement. some circuit board components may not have been thoroughly sealed to prevent moisture contact. the moisture may result in circuit board corrosion possibly causing a short circuit.
Consequence SummaryA short circuit can cause overheating and damage to the converter module, possibly resulting in a fire.
Corrective SummaryThis recall supersedes a previous recall conducted by hyundai affecting the same trailer hitch wiring components concerning high current leakage or a short circuit of capacitor c1. (please see 08e016). owners who have already had their trailer hitch repaired under the initial campaign will receive a second notice from hyundai to have the newly designed harness installed. hyundai will notify all owners and will repair the affected harnesses free of charge. the recall began on october 13, 2008. owners may contact hyundai customer assistant center at 1-800-633-5151.

 The car just started spilling out fuel after hours of being filled. we took the car directly to the dealer (where we purchased in 2002) and they said that we had over filled the gas tank which caused it to go into the carbon box. this seems to be the same statement many other drivers were told from dealers. $869 dollars later, they replaced the recalled faulty tank cap (which to me would have caused some of the fuel to swoosh around while driving - if never properly fit), and then charged us for non-warranty to replace the fuel line. at which time, our car has 30,800 miles and original owners. upon picking up the fixed vehicle, the check engine light stayed lit. we called the dealer back immediately, but could not get in for a week, we drove the car during this time. brought the vehicle back (7/08) and then was told that there were three error readings that were related to the fuel line. after speaking to a combative service tech, i explained that they did something and they needed to fix it, as the engine light was not on prior to their tech fixing our car. suddenly, after i explained that if it is not under warranty then they are not charging me again for services that should have already been done the first time (under warranty in my opinion). it was amazing that the car was ready to go with no other needed service and the error lights were no longer detected. however, two days later 7/31/08, our car was to be serviced again because the check engine light is still not going off. now, after having an smog check, our car did not pass inspection due to:failed - evaporative emissions control system detected - gross leak. emissions should be under warranty and now the dealer - planet hyundai, las vegas, is refusing to address the problem that has occurred while their tech fixed the fuel line problem. it is my opinion that after reading several other cases like this that the fuel line spillage is a common problem with this model. *tr
