Hyundai Motor America is recalling 8,176 model year 2019-2020 Nexo Fuel Cell and model year 2019-2021 Kona Electric vehicles. The Integrated Electronic Brake (IEB) system may detect an abnormal sensor signal and -- as a result -- may significantly reduce braking performance.
Reduced braking power could lengthen the distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will update the IEB software free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 22, 2021.
Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 199.
