    Summary

    Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2013 Veloster vehicles that are equipped with 1.6 liter turbo engines.

    Honestly, I'm curious what it took to finally make it official.

    Forgive my ignorance, but will this only be for US models, i.e. will the recall extend to Canada?

    Odd. Not sure if it's a good thing or bad but my 13 is not covered under this recall.
    100% Stock. Original Rods. 69k miles
    Accessories: Bell roof rack, Whistler radar detector, Cheap dashcam, Graco carseat, Baby on Board sticker
    Future Plans: When its paid off which coincides with the warranty being up: Set of Winter and Summer tires each on separate rims, exhaust, cold air.
    Maintenance: Use cheapest full synthetic oil and filters available. Which is usually Castrol GTX MAGNATEC. Change every 3,000 miles and fill up with Regular gasoline. Premium once out of warranty.

    Once enough issues are reported that's a safety concern something has to happen. I'm just curious if they're doing this and will not replace engines anymore that may let go?

    They only did this because of the fire investigation. They found that early VTs were blowing engines and that could cause potential fires.

    Just figured out the VIN search isn't pulling any of the VTs yet. They might be waiting for dealers to notify owners until they update the database. Does anyone know how many 2013 Veloster Turbos were built/sold in the US?

    There were 30,711 Veloster's sold in 2013. I'm just going to guess that 16,487 of those were Veloster Turbo's.

    Read through the NHTSA documentation a few times, sounds like they will notify owners May 13. Guessing a search of the vin on NHTSA will not be live for this recall until they do the notifications. In addition to the NHTSA site, you may want to keep an eye on the Hyundai Recalls site too. Looks like this impacts 2013 models built before they implemented new software October 17, 2013. Sounds like if your was built April 26, 2012 through Oct. 16, 2013 you will have a recall. If you look on the sticker on the driver side door jamb, it will give you a build date. I was October 2012.

    I have an early 2013 Veloster Turbo. I know that at one point in the past, when I brought it in for service they did an ECU update for some other issue. Would that have updated the software to a version that had the problem fixed already? (i.e. Is this recall only going to be for vehicles still on the originally shipped firmware version?)
