Hyundai recalls over 419K vehicles

Hyundai is recalling more than 419,000 cars and SUVs to fix suspension, brake and oil leak problems.

The biggest of three recalls posted on Friday by U.S. safety regulators is of 225,000 Santa Fe SUVs from 2001-06 to replace front coil springs that can rust and crack in cold-weather states. The springs can fracture and make contact with a tire, potentially causing a crash.

The recall covers Santa Fes originally sold in 20 states and Washington, where salt is used to clear snow and ice from roadways. Pennsylvania is among the states affected. Hyundai said dealers will replace the springs for free. Owners will be notified by the end of September.
