Hyundai is recalling 43,000 units, split between the 2009-2011 Genesis (manufactured between April 30, 2008, and November 21, 2010) and the 2011 Equus (manufactured between July 31, 2010 and November 21, 2010) due to brake lights that fail to illuminate.
The problem apparently revolves around a failure in the circuit that’s supposed to illuminate the taillights when the driver hits the brakes. If that doesn’t work, of course, the vehicle behind would be more likely to crash into the Hyundai in question.
Hyundai said in the NHTSA documents that there were no reports of accidents or injuries related to the issue.
Dealers will replace the circuit at no cost, according to the NHTSA documents. The automaker will begin notifying owners during the first quarter of 2015, according to the NHTSA documents.
