2001 Hyundai XG300 SUSPENSION NHTSA Campaign #09V124000
Summary: Hyundai is recalling 188,282 MY 2001-2004 sonata and MY 2001-2004 XG300 and XG350 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. Road salt applied in these jurisdictions during the winter months may result in progressive, internal corrosion of the front sub-frame on the vehicles, and may result in thinning or perforation of the sub-frame steel. The corrosion is frequently visible and often discovered during inspection or routine maintenance, and owners may also hear noises or notice tire misalignment and steering pull. If these signals are undetected or unheeded, the corrosion may progress and the forward mounting of the lower control arm may detach from the sub-frame.
Consequence: If that happens, the vehicle may lose drive power to the wheels, and the front wheel may make contact with the fender or wheel well, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will measure the thickness of the front sub-frame and inspect the front sub-frame for corrosion damage and, if necessary, the front sub-frame will be replaced with a new sub-frame that incorporates additional holes in the upper and lower panels. If the front sub-frame does not require replacement, the dealer will add drainage holes to the sub-frame and will treat the sub-frame with rust-proofing material to stop the corrosion process. This procedure will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151.

2001 Hyundai XG300 AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW NHTSA Campaign #02V105000
Summary: On certain passenger vehicles, an intermittent condition that leads to the supplemental restraint system (SRS) air bag warning light illumination could result from motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and side impact air bag wiring harness connector which mount to the adjustable seat cushion assembly. This condition only relates to the side impact air bags and could prevent air bag deployment during a crash where such deployment should occur.
Consequence: Non-deployment of the SRS side impact air bag could increase the risk of injury during a side impact crash.
Actions: Dealers will more securely fasten the side impact air bag wiring harnesses and connectors to the vehicle's front seat cushion frames. Owner notification began May 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. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #02V105000 »
2001 Hyundai XG300 POWER TRAIN NHTSA Campaign #01V362000
Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. Improperly manufactured powertrain control modules (PCM) were installed in some vehicles. The improperly manufactured pcms contained a condenser that was not correctly installed onto the PCM printed circuit board. The incorrect installation of the condenser could result in damage to the ignition failure sensor.
Consequence: A damaged ignition failure sensor could result in engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the PCM to determine if it was manufactured during the affected production period. If necessary, the PCM will be replaced. Owner notification began January 27, 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.

2001 Hyundai XG300 EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS NHTSA Campaign #01V307000
Summary: Vehicle description: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with requirements of FMVSS no. 110. These vehicles do not have the correct tire pressure placard attached.
Consequence: Incorrect tire inflation pressure can damage tires, affect vehicle handling, and increase the risk of a crash.
Actions: Owners will be provided with a correct tire pressure placard and installation instructions. Owner notification is expected to begin during October 2001. Owners who do not receive the free tire pressure placard and installation instructions within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-829-9956.
