Hyundai recall: faulty instrument panel

Hyundai is recalling 714 Santa Fe hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles in the United States. Reason: faulty instrument panels.

The recall via the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) affects 714 vehicles worldwide. The automaker has determined that certain vehicles may have their instrument panel manufactured with incorrect resistors, which can result in an inverted image of associated controls, gauges, and indicator lights. Above all, the error should appear when starting the vehicle at extremely low temperatures. And since the vehicles in question don't meet the requirements of federal law, they have to stop.

Affected are vehicles of the type Hyundai Santa Fe HEV (293 vehicles) and PHEV (421 vehicles) from the production period: October 25, 2021 to December 1, 2021. Hyundai manufactured all of the units in Korea to later sell them on the US market for sale. German models are therefore not affected.


Hyundai is recalling 714 Santa Fe vehicles in the United States. When the outside temperature is cold, the instrument panel may appear mirrored by 180 degrees. For Germany no callback is necessary.
