Hyundai Veloster (2011 – 2014)

Published on 7 September 2019

The engine management software could cause premature ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the engine cylinder. Pre-ignition could cause excessive cylinder pressure eventually leading to engine damage. This could lead to an engine stall in motion and to increased risk of fire.

The Hyundai Veloster models affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 December 2011 and 17 November 2014.

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.

How to contact your dealer

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

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.
