Hyundai Canada Recalling 13,552 Sonata Cars Over Fuel Leak Problem

We reported last week on a recall of Kia Sedona vans over a risk of fire caused by a potential fuel leak. Now it’s sister company Hyundai’s turn to announce a recall over the same issue. In this case the recall affects 13,552 2013-2014 Hyundai Sonata models built assembled between November 2012 and January 2014 for the Canadian market.

Hyundai is issuing a recall over the same problem in the United States, where 207,000 Sonatas are affected. The Korean automaker did not divulge how many models are affected worldwide.

The problem involves the low-pressure fuel hose, which can crack over time due to the heat generated in the engine compartment. If that leads to a fuel leak, it raises the risk of a fire. This is according to a document produced by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the American equivalent of Transport Canada.

Users of these vehicles may also detect an odour of gasoline as a result of the issue. Kia’s recall last week made mention of owners reporting noticing gas smells from their vehicle.
