Your car is built to function a certain way, and it usually does. Unfortunately, no matter how thorough Hyundai is in testing their vehicles, there’s no way they can test them in every situation, and sometimes they don’t work the way they’re supposed to. That’s where recalls come in, and Hyundai is always eager to fix things that don’t work the way they should. At Vision Hyundai Henrietta Rochester, our recall department is ready and waiting to help you take care of your open recalls.
An open recall is a recall where you need to get something changed or fixed in your car. It can be something small like a software update or a large mechanical replacement when a whole part isn’t working the way it should. Open recalls usually have a service bulletin that tells the certified technicians precisely what to do to resolve the issue. After that, the recall is considered closed.
Most recalls can be taken care of by a certified Hyundai service center at no cost to you. Our service center is, in fact, a Hyundai-certified service center, so there’s no reason you wouldn’t get an open recall resolved. If you don’t know if you have any open recalls, you can always come in, and we’ll check for you, or you can use our online tool to look up your car and see what recalls have been issued for it.
Hyundai has a great reputation for their cars’ safety, performance, and quality, and they want that reputation to remain in place. That’s why they are quick to issue a recall when they identify a part or system that needs tuning. Recalls can also be mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, which monitors consumer reports for car defects. Still, generally, Hyundai will issue a recall as soon as they can. You’re then notified by mail of the recall, but you can miss the recall notice by accident since addresses change, and the mail can sometimes look like junk mail.
Recalls can be somewhat minor, but they also can be very serious. We want you to be safe, just like Hyundai does, so we encourage you to find any open recalls and bring them to us, and we’ll make sure your car is entirely up to Hyundai standards. You can call us or use our online scheduler to set up your appointment today!
