NHTSA Campaign Number: 22V312

Manufacturer Hyundai Motor America

Components FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

Potential Number of Units Affected 215,171

 

Summary

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2013-2014 Sonata vehicles. The low pressure fuel hose that connects the low pressure fuel pump to the direct injection fuel pump may crack over time, due to heat generated within the engine compartment.

 

Remedy

Dealers will replace the low pressure fuel hose, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 5, 2022. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 227. This recall replaces NHTSA recall number 20V-121. Vehicles previously repaired under recall 20V-121 that did not receive a replacement fuel hose will need to have this new recall remedy performed.

 

Notes

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.nhtsa.gov.

Important notices:

  • Regarding Related Recall 189:

Recall 227 supersedes recall 189 as outlined below and will be deactivated. Any repairs performed in accordance with the respective 189 TSB must have a repair order (RO) open date prior to 09/01/2022. Labor operation codes applicable to the superseded recall and vehicle models will be deactivated and related claims must be submitted by 09/15/2022.

  • Any vehicle that also had its fuel tube replaced under Recall 189 does not need to have it its fuel tube replaced again under Recall 227. In other words, fuel tube replacement under recall 189 satisfies recall 227.

 

Description of Campaign: 

On certain 2013-2014MY Sonata vehicles, the fuel feed line connecting the low-pressure fuel pump to the direct injection fuel pump could develop a small crack over time due to ambient heat in the engine compartment. A damaged fuel line could allow fuel to leak, increasing the risk of an engine compartment fire.

 

Affected Vehicles:

➢ Certain 2013-14MY Hyundai Sonata (YFa) produced between 11/26/2012 – 02/07/2014 by Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (“HMMA”)

  • To check vehicle specific recall applicability, access the “Vehicle Information” screen via WebDCS.
  • For this recall, please note that there no new vehicles currently in dealer stock.

 

Remedy Information: 

Replace the fuel tube connecting the low-pressure fuel line under the vehicle to the direct injection fuel pump using the service procedure outlined in TSB 22-01-047H.

  • Estimated Repair Time: 5 M/H for replacement
  • Recommended Training Level: Expert Technician or higher

 

Recommended Alternative Transportation:

Based on the length of the recommended repair, it is recommended that the customer be provided with a Service Rental Car (SRC) during the visit.

 

Customer FAQ

Q1: My fuel feed line was inspected previously (but not replaced) under Recall 189, does it still need to be replaced? A1: Yes, the fuel tube will be replaced in all affected vehicles under recall 227.

 

Q2: What is the risk if the fuel line is not replaced?

A2: The fuel line could develop a small crack leading to a leak, increasing the risk of an engine compartment fire.

 

Q3: What is the issue?

A3:The subject vehicles are part of the affected population under Recall 189 (20V-121), which provided an inspection of the fuel feed line connecting the low-pressure fuel pump to the direct injection fuel pump for damage and/or leakage. If the inspection revealed fuel feed line damage and/or fuel leakage, the fuel tube was replaced. If the fuel feed line did not show signs of damage and/or fuel leak, heat resistant tape was applied at the connection between the low-pressure fuel tube and fuel pump. A fuel leak was detected in a limited number of vehicles that received heat resistant tape as the remedy under Recall 189 (20V-121).

 

Q4: What is the safety concern?

A4: Leaking fuel in the engine compartment could increase the risk of an engine compartment fire while in the presence of an ignition source.  

 

Q5: Have there been any accidents or injuries?

A5: As of the filing to NHTSA on 05/09/22, Hyundai identified 138 reports received from July 30, 2020, to April 18, 2022, of the feed line damage and/or fuel leakage condition in the U.S. market. As of the date of this filing, there are no confirmed crashes, fires, or injuries in the U.S.  

 

Q6: What will be done during this recall service at the dealer?

A6: All owners of the subject vehicles will be notified by first class mail with instructions to bring their vehicles to a Hyundai dealer to have the fuel feed line (tube) replaced. This remedy will be offered at no cost to owners for all affected vehicles, regardless of whether the affected vehicles are still covered under Hyundai’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Additionally, Hyundai will provide owners of affected vehicles reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses incurred to obtain a remedy for the recall condition in accordance with the reimbursement plan submitted to NHTSA on February 24, 2022.

 

Q7: What will owners be notified?

A7: Owners will be notified in Fall 2022 of a remedy available for their vehicle.

Those owners that had their fuel tube replaced under 189 while having 227 open on their vehicle will receive a letter notifying them that their fuel tube was replaced under 189 and no further action is required of them for 227.

Chronology :

February 2022
On February 15, 2022, NASO’s Data Review Committee (“DRC”) reviewed warranty claims reporting leaking fuel on certain 2013-2014 model year Hyundai Sonata vehicles that had received the tape remedy associated with Recall 189 (Safety Recall 20V-121). The DRC noted that Kia had recently announced a recall to address a similar condition on certain 2013-2014 model year Kia Optima vehicles that were repaired under Kia Safety Recall 187. DRC determined to open an investigation for NASO’s Technical Review Committee’s (“NASO’s TRC”) evaluation.

March 2022
NASO’s TRC conducted a study of warranty part returns and communicated its findings in a Quality Information Report (“QIR”) sent to HMC on March 23, 2022. Through examination of incident parts, NASO observed varied conditions in which the tape and zip-tie were applied in Recall 189’s remedy, as well as fuel tubes with the remedy components missing. Evidence of fuel leakage from fuel tubes with the tape and zip-tie correctly applied was also found.

April 2022
Based on the investigation findings, on April 29, 2022, HMA convened its North America Safety Decision Authority and decided to initiate a new safety recall of vehicles associated with Recall 189 that did not receive a fuel tube replacement.

Hyundai identified 138 reports received from July 30, 2020, to April 18, 2022, of the defect condition in the U.S. market. As of the date of this filing, there are no confirmed crashes, fires, or injuries in the U.S.
