Yih Sheng Auto Parts Recalls Aftermarket Replacement Hoods

TAU YUAN HSIEN, Taiwan, R.O.C., Jan. 11, 2005; Yih Sheng Auto Parts Ind. Co. has issued the recall of their aftermarket replacement hoods for the Hyundai Elantra, model years 2001 - 2003. All suspect parts were sold under the Yih Sheng brand name, and are being recalled because of a possible faulty hood latch assembly. The company is aware of two accident claims in which it appears the hood latch assemblies failed, allowing the hood to release during vehicle operation.

To ensure the safety of the motoring public and avoid any further hazards, Yih Sheng has elected to voluntarily recall and replace all suspect parts purchased or installed between January 2004 and December 2004. The manufacturer has requested that all members of the collision industry cooperate in this recall effort.

Please contact your collision repair specialist if your 2001 - 2003 Hyundai Elantra was repaired between January and December 2004 to ascertain if the replacement hood you received is among those subject to this recall.

As a responsible manufacturer, Yih Sheng regrets any inconvenience caused by this situation.
