Hyundai Santa Fe (2020)

Published on 06. 04. 2021

Problem description:

The gap between the fuel tank and the fixing band is too narrow, which can cause fuel tank damage and fuel leakage in the event of a side collision. Fuel leakage close to a source of ignition will increase the risk of fire.

The Hyundai Santa Fe models affected by this recall were manufactured in November 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Hyundai dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
