I didn't see a thread covering this already so here's a recall i was just notified of.

Affected cars:
  • 2012 Accent
  • 2012 Veloster
  • 2011-12 Sonata Hybrid
  • "Certain 2011-12 elantras produced in Alabama"
What is it?:
Tire mobility kits were those black box air compressors and goo cartridges used instead of a space saver spare tires. They are designed to plug into an accessory power port/cigarette lighter.

Apparently some cars had the internal thermal fused overtightened which risks an electrical fire during prolonged use.

Remedie:
They are adding a direct to battery wiring harness to the car for the air compressor (instead of just using a spare tire...) But most dealers at the time of writing do not have the part yet so it is unclear where the new harness goes/looks like.

Yes, I took mine in to get done only to be told they need to order parts. That was a week ago today.
