TPMS Problem Prompts Hyundai Recall

Posted on March 20, 2017

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain 2017 Santa Fe Sport vehicles because their tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) may not have been set correctly.

The TPMS therefore won't warn a motorist in the event of an underinflated tire, and thus these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems." The recall affects 190 vehicles.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the TPMS sensors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 31, 2017. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for the recall is 159.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
