Roughly 190 owners of the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport will be alerted later this month by Hyundai Motor America about a recall due to a problem with the vehicle’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
This system’s mode may have not been set correctly during assembly of the vehicles. Owners of these vehicles would not be alerted in the event of an underinflated tire and therefore this is a safety risk.

Under Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems” are required on all passenger vehicles including trucks and buses that are 10,000 pounds or less.
Hyundai will replace the TPMS sensors at no charge to consumers. The recall notices are expected to be sent out March 31, 2017.
Hyundai customer service number is 1-800-633-5151. The recall number is 159.
