Update: Hyundai Nexo Recalled for Hydrogen Leaks
In May 2022, Hyundai issued a recall for approximately 70 model year 2019 NEXO vehicles over concerns that hydrogen leaks could cause vehicle fires.
According to Hyundai, the inlet receptacle filter could detach and cause a hydrogen fuel leak following hydrogen refueling.
Hyundai NEXO recall notices were mailed in June 2022, and dealers will replace the hydrogen fuel inlet receptacles.
Hyundai's number for this recall is 224.
What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2019-2020 Hyundai Nexo Fuel Cell
- 2019-2021 Hyundai Kona Electric
The Integrated Electronic Brake (IEB) system on affected vehicles may detect an abnormal sensor signal, significantly reducing braking performance, NHTSA said.
Reduced braking power could lengthen the distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Hyundai is notifying owners and dealers will update the IEB software for free.
This recall began on January 22, 2022.
