2012 Hyundai Genesis. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle brake system recall. The consumer wanted to voice his concern about the recall that was announced, and how the dot 3 brake fluid was suspected of causing contamination of the heca. The consumer stated his brake fluid was replaced with dot 4 when Hyundai performed the tsb. However, the same heca unit remained in his vehicle. The new recall stated for vehicles manufacturer after June 1, 2010 dealers would flush the hecu assembly/valves and brake system using Hyundai's dealer diagnostic tool and change the brake fluid with fluid containing additional corrosion inhibitor additive. The recall made no mention on inspecting the hecu internals for corrosion. The consumer would like to know, how can Hyundai assure him that his hecu has no corrosion, even in the slightest measurement.

I have had no accidents for over 20 years, now I have two fender benders - rear end collisions. The first one, 10/07/11, was at less than or about 5mph and I remember braking as usual but it failed to stop and rear ended the vehicle in front. Only minor damages due to the speed involved. Next, today 11/14/11, I braked when a truck cut me off and merged on to the freeway from an exit only lane at the last minute, still it made contact with that truck, this time moderate damage to my vehicle and none to the truck. The speed here was about 10-15mph. I have observed that when I put my leg on the brake pedal while starting, it goes down a little bit which may be normal, but, I am afraid that such a travel / ply could have happened during the above two collisions because I could not believe that it traveled even after I slammed on the brakes.
