Hyundai recalls 65,000 Elantra sedans (U.S)

Hyundai Motor America has issued a recall affecting 65,000 units of the Elantra for a fuel pump defect. It affects MY2008 models produced between 5th November 2007 and 28th June 2008.

The defective fuel pump may lose pressure and hinder the engine's performance. All affected models are equipped with the 2.0 litre Beta 4-cylinder engine that produces 138bhp. Injuries have not been reported due to this defect. Hyundai USA has said that its dealers will replace the fuel pump for free. The recall is expected to begin in during September 2008.

Produced in Hyundai's Ulsan plant in South Korea, the Elantra is the second best selling Hyundai in the U.S, behind the Sonata.
