6 recalls for 6 Hyundai models in 2019


In 2019, Hyundai announced six recalls involving six models through the EU Rapex system. Hyundai Santa Fe, H1, i30, Veloster, Ioniq and Kauai (Kona) were affected by one recall each.


We’ve sorted all 2019 recalls according to the model into a table below.

With the Hyundai Santa Fe (9/2017 – 8/2018), the curtain airbag mounting bolt protrudes too much. If activated, the bag fabric may be damaged. The sliding door lock mechanism may be defective with the Hyundai H1 van.



Czech made Hyundai i30 may have a defect on the electric motor on the glass sliding roof. With the Hyundai Veloster made between 2011 – 2014, the engine management software could cause premature ignition of the air/fuel mixture.

With the first Ioniq models manufactured until July 2017, the main relay in the Power Relay Assembly (PRA) located under the rear seat may not be properly tightened.

We wrote about the main events in separate articles below.
