Hyundai Elantras recalled for fuel pump issue

Last month we reported that The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was conducting a preliminary investigation about possible problems with the Hyundai Elantra’s fuel pump. Well, it seems that they were right, because Hyundai is now recalling about 65,000 Elantras that might have some problems with the fuel pump. The recall affects 2008 Elantras powered by the 2.0 liter Beta engine. According to Hyunida, “some fuel pumps installed from Nov. 5 to June 28 may lose pumping pressure as gasoline with ethanol produces a buildup of film on the units’ electrical contacts, leading to poor starting or engine hesitation.”
