Hyundai recalls certain Accent, Tucson, Elantra, Santa Fe, Veracruz, Genesis Coupe, and Sonata vehicles

Hyundai Motors

Hyundai Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai has agreed to notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall will begin by June 2013.

I had mine fixed BEFORE the recall and my husband paid out of pocket. We got the notice from Hyundai and my husband went BACK to the dealer when finding out about the recall, with my receipt, to get reimbursed by the dealer who fixed it. They told him to call Hyundai to submit the claim to the Hyundai company so they could "make a claim under the recall and bill for it as a Recall job"? I just wanted my money back! What's going on? Is this the right procedure? Seems they would have had the right paperwork to do it right there and have my husband say the work was done already and then the money would be given to him on the spot. They ALREADY got paid!!
