Problem Description

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.

Hyundai recall code: 91C018

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 fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.

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.

This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type.
