PhotoHyundai Motor America is recalling 190 model year 2017 Santa Fe Sport vehicles.

The recalled vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that may not have been set in the correct mode during vehicle assembly, and therefore will not provide an appropriate warning in the event of an underinflated tire.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."

An underinflated inflated tire can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the TPMS sensors, free of charge. The recall is expected to being March 31, 2017.

Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for the recall is 159.
