Brake Booster Fault Causes Palisade Recall

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Hyundai Motor America has agreed to recall certain model-year 2023 Hyundai Palisade vehicles that might lose power brake assist.

The 322 sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) within the recall population potentially have a brake booster diaphragm which may become misaligned and cause an internal vacuum leak. This leak could lead to the loss of the brake assist.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Part 573 Safety Recall Report 23V-415, the safety risk is the “Loss of power brake assist could result in extended vehicle stopping distance increasing the risk of a crash.”

The problem originated with the brake-booster manufacturer/supplier.

There have not been any reported incidents or injuries due to this condition.

The remedy is inspection by a technician at an authorized Hyundai dealer. Should the inspection result in determination of a defective part, the brake-booster assembly will be replaced.

Dealers and consumers are scheduled to be notified of the recall by Aug. 7th.
