Hyundai Owners Could Join a Class Action Against Hyundai Over Anti-Lock Brake System Defect

The Vehicle Safety Defect Attorneys of McCune Law Group has filed a class action lawsuit (Bailey Bennion v. Hyundai Motor) bringing claims of alleged consumer fraud and breach of warranty claims relating to the ABS systems of certain Hyundai vehicles. Owners of affected Hyundai vehicles are still eligible to join the lawsuit to reclaim significant compensation. The vehicle safety defect lawyers of McCune Law Group have spent the past 30 years fighting for the rights of consumers in the face of unscrupulous business practices. We’re proud to have successfully represented clients against Toyota, Wells Fargo, Hyundai, and other Fortune 500 companies. We helped recover more than $1 billion in recovery for clients and were one of the groups of lawyers that obtained a $1.2 billion global settlement from Toyota resulting from the unintended acceleration of its vehicles.

Class Action Offers Recourse For Hyundai Vehicle Owners Affected by ABS Defect

The lawsuit alleges that Hyundai recently issued a recall for the ABS defect, but its proposed “fix” under the recall does not go far enough to resolve the root cause of the ABS defect, leaving owners vulnerable to unreasonable safety consequences and expensive repair bills. The lawsuit further alleges that the ABS assembly—which is responsible for adjusting braking pressure to ensure a vehicle’s wheels don’t skid or hydroplane during inclement weather conditions—can lead to electrical shorts, which can cause vehicle fires, unintended brake application, and/or loss of braking power.

The following models may be impacted:

  • 2011-2015 Hyundai Elantra
  • 2011-2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
  • 2011-2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs of a failing ABS system in a vehicle?

When the ABS system in a vehicle is on the verge of failure, drivers may notice several warning signs. One common indicator is the illumination of the ABS warning light on the dashboard. Additionally, a vibrating or pulsating brake pedal during rapid stops, along with unusual noises like grinding or clicking sounds, may signal potential issues. Reduced braking effectiveness, especially during slippery conditions, is another red flag. If any of these symptoms are experienced, it’s crucial to address them promptly to ensure the safety and functionality of the vehicle’s braking system.

Due to the risk of electrical fire, Hyundai has advised owners to park their vehicles outside and away from structures until the recall repair is complete.

The cost of repairing a failing ABS system can vary depending on the underlying issue, the model of the vehicle, and the labor rates in your area. Minor repairs, such as sensor replacements or wiring fixes, may be relatively affordable, ranging from $100 to $300. However, more complex problems, such as a malfunctioning control module or pump, can lead to higher repair costs, potentially ranging from $500 to $1,500 or more. It’s essential to consult with a professional mechanic who can diagnose the problem and provide an accurate estimate for the specific repairs needed.
