Recalls for 1997 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Wgn Auto
1997 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 00V095002
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
Manufacturer: HYUNDAI CARIBBEAN-PUERTO RICO
Manufacture Dates: -
Potential Units Affected: 7111
Defect Description:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. THE EVAPORATIVE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS CAN APPLY EXCESSIVE VACUUM TO THE FUEL TANKS DURING THE CANISTER PURGE CYCLE. IF EXCESSIVE VACUUM IS APPLIED, MINOR FUEL TANK DISTORTION CAN RESULT. A SMALL CRACK COULD DEVELOP ON THE UPPER FUEL TANK SURFACE. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT WOULD THEN ILLUMINATE AND, IN SOME CASES, THE VEHICLE DRIVER MAY NOTICE A GASOLINE ODOR.
Consequence:
FUEL LEAKAGE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE COULD RESULT IN A FIRE.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL PRESSURE CHECK THE VEHICLE'S FUEL TANK TO DETERMINE IF IT HAS CRACKED. IF THE FUEL TANK HAS CRACKED, IT WILL BE REPLACED.
1997 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 00V095001
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
Manufacturer: HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY
Manufacture Dates: 09/01/1996 - 08/31/1997
Potential Units Affected: 84020

1997 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 97V026000
Component: VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER:MOTOR
Manufacturer: HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA
Manufacture Dates: 11/20/1995 - 10/18/1996
Potential Units Affected: 74965
Defect Description:
THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR CIRCUIT BREAKER ELECTRICAL CONTACTS WERE CONTAMINATED DURING ASSEMBLY.
Consequence:
THIS CONTAMINATION INTERFERES WITH THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT CONTINUITY AND PREVENTS THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR FROM OPERATING. INOPERATIVE WINDSHIELD WIPERS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO REDUCED VISIBILITY DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE CONTAMINANTS FROM THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR CIRCUIT BREAKER CONTACTS.
