The NHTSA reports that Hyundai is recalling 64,500 Elantras from model year 2013 due to deteriorated brake pedal stopper pads that could lead to transmission and electrical issues. Mitsubishi has issued a recall for 82,000 Outlanders and Lancers from model years 2015 and 2016 due to transmission issues that could delay acceleration. Hyundai and Mitsubishi are part of the Global Engine Alliance and share many engine and transmission components, though these latest recalls are for specific issues with individual vehicle models.
Recalls happen almost daily as the NHTSA fields complaints from around the country.
