Hyundai recalls 600K vehicles to fix hood latches, warning lights

(WROC-TV) - Hyundai is recalling almost 600,000 vehicles to fix hood latch and parking brake warning light problems.

The recall impacts more than 437,000 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport SUV models from 2013 to 2017.

A cable for the secondary hood latch can corrode and fail to latch. That could let the hood fly up if the primary latch isn't secured.

The second recall posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers 161,000 Genesis and Sonata models from 2015 and 2016.

The light that shows the parking brake is on may not light due to corrosion in a switch. That could let the cars be driven with the brake on.

Dealers will replace the cable and switch starting June 30.
