  1. 1997 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 »
