  1. 2000 Hyundai Accent STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS NHTSA Campaign #02V167000

    • Date Announced: JUNE 25, 2002
    • Vehicles Affected: 67,565

    Summary: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 201, "occupant protection in interior impact." During testing, the 3-door hatchback exceeded the performance criterion in the standard midway along the length of the windshield support pillar (A-pillar).

    Consequence: An occupant's head that contacts the A-pillar during a crash could experience an increased risk of a head injury as a result of this condition.

    Actions: Dealers will install new energy management brackets to support the A-pillar covers and increase the energy absorbing performance of the A-pillar in the relevant area. Owner notification began October 28, 2002. 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. 2000 Hyundai Accent VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL NHTSA Campaign #01V346000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 06, 2001
    • Vehicles Affected: 49,371

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles equipped with 1.5 liter or 1.6 liter engines that were originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. While driving at a steady throttle opening for an extended period of time during extremely cold ambient temperatures (below approximately -5 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity), moisture in the combustion chamber blowby gases can freeze and block the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve and hose. If the PCV hose freezes, combustion chamber gases are forced through the breather hose into the air intake hose and then into the throttle body.

    Consequence: Moisture in the combustion chamber blowby gases may freeze inside the throttle body bore and throttle body idle speed control circuit resulting in the throttle valve not closing fully and a higher than normal idle speed when the accelerator pedal is released.

    Actions: Dealers will install a new, relocated PCV hose and will additionally install a heated throttle body on the 2000-2001 Accents equipped with 1.5 liter engines that were produced through January 31, 2001. Owner notification began April 15, 2002. 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.

  3. 2000 Hyundai Accent VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER:LINKAGES NHTSA Campaign #00V096001

    • Date Announced: JULY 07, 2000
    • Vehicles Affected: 400

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The protective rubber boot which covers the ball joint connection between the windshield wiper motor drive arm and the windshield wiper drag link can stick to the surface of the drive arm. If the rubber boot sticks and the wiper motor is turned on, binding of the interface between the drive arm and drag link results, causing the ball joint connection to disengage.

    Consequence: If the connection disengages, the windshield wipers are inoperative. Inoperative windshield wipers can contribute to reduced visibility during inclement weather.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the protective rubber boot and will lubricate the new protective rubber boot where it contacts the drive arm. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #00V096001 »
