MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – If you’re cruising around town in a late model Hyundai Santa Fe, you’ll soon be getting a letter in the mail.
Hyundai has recalled about 23,000 of SUVs in the U.S. and Canada because an axle can fail, causing the vehicle to lose power.
The recall affects 2013 Santa Fe Sport models with front-wheel-drive and 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engines. They were built between July 11, 2012 through March 12 of this year.
Hyundai says the right axle shaft can fail in rare cases. If that happens, the SUVs can lose power or roll away if parked on a slope. The company says it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries linked to the defect.
Dealers will replace the axle shaft free of charge.
