RECALL: Hyundai Calls Back 42,925 Sedans In U.S. For Possible Brake Light Issue

Hyundai Motor Co is calling back 42,925 sedans in the United States due to potentially faulty brake lights, according to documents filed with U.S. safety regulators.

According to Reuters, Hyundai is recalling specific 2009-2011 Genesis and 2011 Equus sedans due to a possible circuit failure that may lead to the brake lights not illuminating. This malfunction could dramatically increase the risk of a rear-end crash as a following vehicle might not recognize the car ahead was slowing or stopping.

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.
