  1. 1995 Hyundai Accent SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM NHTSA Campaign #02V341000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 20, 2002
    • Vehicles Affected: 46,828

    Summary: On certain passenger vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. During winter months, large quantities of salt are used to de-ice roads. This road salt could result in corrosion of the front lower control arms.

    Consequence: Severe corrosion could result in perforation and potential fracture of the front lower control arm. If this fracture occurs, the tire and wheel assembly remains connected to the chassis through the forward lower control arm pivot point and through the strut attachment to the upper wheelhouse. Reduced control of the front wheel location increases the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the front lower control arms and, if necessary, will replace one or both front lower control arms if structural damage has occurred. Owner notification will begin on June 10, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

  2. 1995 Hyundai Accent SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS NHTSA Campaign #98V245000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 06, 1998
    • Vehicles Affected: 64,967

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles originally sold or currently registered in the following "salt belt" states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. During winter months, the road salt used to de-ice roads can result in corrosion that causes pits to form on the lower coil of the front springs allowing cracks to develop. This can result in breakage of the lower spring coil.

    Consequence: If the front coil spring breaks, it can become displaced from its seated position, and can contact a tire. Tire damage can result.

    Actions: Dealers will install a spring guide to prevent a broken coil spring from contacting and damaging a tire. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98V245000 »
