How to Easily Check for a Hyundai Recall

No one wants to find out that a component of their car is putting them in danger. That is why it is important to be aware of a that could affect the make and model of your vehicle. If you purchased a new car from an authorized Hyundai dealer, you may receive notification in the mail if there is a Hyundai recall alert.

Even if there is a delay, car manufacturers are still required to fix the specific issue that triggered the recall. DoNotPay can help you find the recalls that correspond with your vehicle.

How Do I Make a Claim for a Hyundai Recall?

A Hyundai recall can be for a minor issue or it could be for a dangerous issue that makes driving your vehicle unsafe. If you know of a recall or have been notified, there are specific steps you need to take in order to make your claim.

  1. Notification of Recall
Before you can make a claim, you will probably receive a notification of the specific Hyundai recall that impacts the make and model of your car. If you bought a used car, you may still get notified if it was through an authorized dealer. However, if you purchased your car through an individual, you may not receive any notification for a recall, so it is important to go online and check for recalls at regular intervals.
  1. Contact Your Dealership
Whether you bought new or used, an authorized Hyundai dealer will be able to make the necessary repairs and replacements for your specific recall notice. When you are contacting your dealership, it is important to provide them with the following information:
  • The recall notice, if you received one by mail
  • The make, model, and year of your vehicle
  1. Schedule Repairs
Once you have determined that a Hyundai recall impacts your car, it is important to schedule repairs, whether the recall is for an optional part or whether the recall is for a significant repair that could impact your safety while driving. Most Hyundai recall repairs will be at the cost of the manufacturer, as long as you take it to an authorized dealer to have it repaired. If you want to use a private mechanic, you will likely have to pay for the repairs yourself.

Who Is Eligible for a Hyundai Recall?

Not every Hyundai car owner will be eligible for any specific recall. Your car is eligible for a recall if the make, model, and year match a specific recall notice. This is because not all models are affected by every recall due to changes in the design and manufacturing of specific parts.

If you think your car falls under one of Hyundai's recall notices, it is important to contact an authorized dealership to see if you qualify for repairs or replacement parts.

Will I Get a Notification if My Car Has a Recall?

Not every Hyundai owner will receive notification of a specific recall. You will only receive a recall notice in the mail if you either bought the car new or purchased a used car from an authorized dealer. If you didn't, you will not be notified by Hyundai.

It can be a hassle to try and search online for specific recalls, especially if you are unsure if your specific car is affected. To make it easier to find recalls that affect your products, you can use DoNotPay's car recall monitor.
