2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor Company
Number of vehicles affected: 714
Report Date: December 28, 2021
Issue: Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2022 Santa Fe HEV and Santa Fe PHEV vehicles. The instrument cluster liquid-crystal display (LCD) may invert the image on the screen upon vehicle startup, making the display illegible. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 101, “Controls and Displays.” An illegible instrument cluster will not show information such as vehicle speed or safety system warnings, which can increase the risk of a crash.
Solution: Dealers will replace the instrument cluster, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed February 25, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 217.
