Hyundai Motor India Ltd have issued a voluntary recall for the Santa Fe SUV due to an issue detected with the car’s ‘Stop Lamp Switch.’ A total of 2,437 units of the Sports Utility Vehicle of the 2011 model year have been recalled in India. The recall has been initiated to replace the ’Stop Lamp Switch’ that poses a possibility of malfunction. The switch is mounted near the brake-pedal mechanism and activated when the pedal is depressed and released. 

The affected models were built between 26 June 2011 and 26 September 2013 and the owners of such affected vehicles will be notified in a phased manner to bring in their respective vehicles for replacing the faulty part. The company will replace the faulty part at no extra cost to the customers. 

Since the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) implemented a Voluntary Recall Code in 2012, the automakers have been pro-active in recalling vehicles, in light of safety concerns. Earlier this month, Honda Cars India Ltd has recalled 31,226 units of select variants of the Amaze compact sedan and the Brio hatchback this month to inspect them for a possible brake system defect. 

Last month, Maruti Suzuki has sought 1,03,311 units of the Ertiga, Swift and the Swift DZire that were built between November 2013 and February 2014 to replace a faulty fuel filler hose. Before that, Toyota Kirloskar Motor recalled close to 45,000 units of the Innova MPV to fix an issue with the car’s steering column.

In one of the biggest and possibly, the most controversial recalls came from General Motors who called in 1,14,000 units of its Tavera SUV to address the emissions and specification issues.
