TUCSON safety recall FAQs.

Certain Tucson vehicles may have an increased risk of an electrical short circuit within the ABS module when it is exposed to moisture, which in turn can lead to an increased risk of an engine compartment fire.

Like all car manufacturers, we follow a process for recalls whereby they are announced to government bodies within a certain timeframe regardless of parts supply.

There have been no incidents of fires in Australia related to this recall issue. However, despite this, it is important for us to instigate the recall to ensure your safety.
