Some 2008 Hyundai Elantras Recalled...

January 5, 2009
Hyundai is recalling about 347 of its 2008 model year Elantras because of a possible fuel pump problem.

The company said that affected fuel pumps might produce less pumping pressure than is needed to supply the fuel injection system, causing poor engine starting and hesitation, possibly leading to a crash. The affected models were made at Hyundai's Puerto Rico plant.

Dealers will replace the fuel pump subassembly when the recall begins in February.

Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-981-0188 about recall number 086..

Consumers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153) or at www.safercar.gov.
