Hyundai recalls 2014 Santa Fe vehicles over damaged tire sidewalls

Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2014 Santa Fe vehicles manufactured Nov. 5, 2013, through Nov. 15, 2013, and equipped with P235/65R17 103T Continental Crosscontact LX tires, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The tires may have a damaged sidewall.

The damaged sidewall may result in a separation between the belt edges which could cause tread detachment or rapid air loss, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai notified dealers to suspend sales of affected Santa Fe Sport vehicles equipped with the P235/65R17 103T tires, and replace them with alternative tires. All affected vehicles were remedied prior to retail sale. Owners may contact Hyundai Customer Care Center at 1-800-633-5151.

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.
