Hyundai Recall Campaign 259

Attachment A: Requested Chronology of Events Leading Up to Decision

 

March 2024

On March 5, 2024, HMC initiated a new global investigation based on receipt of two (2) claims involving Kia vehicles in certain foreign markets that exhibited noise while driving due to a faulty MGDU.  HMC subsequently notified NASO of its initial assessment of both incidents.

On March 28, 2024, HMC informed NASO of information obtained from the Tier 1 supplier pertaining to a mis-shipment of MGDU assemblies intended for rework by the Tier 2 differential gear supplier.  According to HMC, the bolts securing the differential gear to the housing were insufficiently tightened during assembly, leading to disengagement and a subsequent loss of motive power, as confirmed through testing of Kia vehicles retrofitted with defective MGDU units.  HMC began tracking down vehicles potentially containing MGDU assemblies from the suspect lot and informed NASO that five (5) IONIQ 6 vehicles may have been delivered to the U.S. and Canada equipped with defective MGDU assemblies.  NASO confirmed that two (2) AWD-specification vehicles were sold in the U.S. equipped with potentially affected rear MGDU assemblies.

 

April 2024

On April 12, 2024, based on HMC’s investigation findings, HMA’s NASO convened its North America Safety Decision Authority (“NASDA”) and decided to conduct a safety recall of Hyundai IONIQ 6 vehicles potentially containing defective MGDU assemblies in the U.S. and Canada.

There are no incidents, crashes, injuries, or fatalities attributable to this condition in the U.S.
