Hyundai recalls 23K Santa Fe SUVs; cars can lose power

August 14, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
Hyundai is recalling approximately 23,000 SUVs in the U.S. and Canada over an axle problem that can cause the car to lose power.

The recall affects 2013 Santa Fe Sport models with front-wheel-drive and 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engines. The cars were built between July 11, 2012 and March 12, 2013.

Hyundai says the right axle shaft can fail in rare cases. If that happens, the SUVs can lose power or roll away if parked on a slope.

Dealers will replace the axle shaft free of charge.
