Model Highlights

The 2009 Hyundai Veracruz has a very simple lineup; there are just two models, GLS and Limited, and both of those come with a choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

A 260-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic transmission are standard across the entire lineup. The combination is very smooth and responsive, and the transmission includes a manual mode for those who want to select the gears themselves. Fuel economy ratings are 16 mpg city, 23 highway with front-wheel drive and 1 mpg lower in the city with all-wheel drive.

The so-called Torque Controlled Coupling All Wheel Drive system that's offered on the Veracruz is designed for snowy and slick road conditions, rather than off-roading. The system sends more power to the rear wheels only when it's needed, so the effect on mileage is minimal; it also includes an AWD Lock mode for tough mud, sand or deep snow.

The Veracruz also features 7-passenger seating -- the third-row seat stows away into the floor when it's not needed, leaving a flat, low loading floor comparable to those in minivans. And at the far back, there's an additional storage well. Meanwhile the second-row seats fold forward flat for easy access to the second row or long cargo items, and third-row occupants get their own vents and climate controls.

Safety content is generous in the Veracruz; it features electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, along with front side airbags and side-curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seating.

Base GLS models of the Veracruz start attractively at just over $27,000, and they're very well-equipped. The GLS includes air conditioning, heated power side mirrors with puddle lamps, cruise control and a trip computer. A Preferred Package adds a power sunroof, heated front seats, a power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a reverse-parking sensor system, automatic headlamps, fog lamps and a temperature-controlled center console storage box. A Premium Package includes the contents of the Preferred Package, but also adds leather seat trim, a power-assisted tailgate and 18-inch alloy wheels. At the top of the range, the Limited gets most of those Premium Package extras as standard equipment. A navigation system is optional on the Limited, as is rear-seat video entertainment. An audiophile-grade Infinity Logic 7 surround system with iPod compatible USB jacks is also optional.


Model News

The SE trim has been dropped for 2009. In its place, the GLS offers optional Preferred and Premium packages. The Preferred package includes a power sunroof, power driver seat, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, reverse sonar, 115-volt power outlet, automatic headlights, fog lamps, temperature-controlled center console storage. The Premium package offers all the contents of the Preferred package, but adds leather seat trim, power tailgate, auto-dimming rearview mirror, HomeLink universal garage door opener, compass and 18" alloy wheels.


Value Writeup

When designing the Veracruz, Hyundai used the popular Lexus RX luxury SUV as a target. As a result, the Hyundai crossover offers a higher standard of smoothness, refinement and noise suppression than most shoppers will expect. The Veracruz also stands out for its long features list; from features-for-the-money point of view, the Veracruz is an excellent deal compared to most other crossovers. And with a premium audio system and navigation system available, it's truly competitive with the feature sets of entry luxury vehicles.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Veracruz vehicles manufactured from December 26, 2006, through July 24, 2012. The affected vehicles may experience an oil leak from the front cylinder bank valve cover gasket. If there is a sufficient amount of oil dropped onto the alternator, the alternator will be damaged causing the charging system to become inoperative.

Consequence
If the alternator is damaged, the charging system warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate, and the engine will lose power and the vehicle will eventually stop operating while being driven. An unexpected failure of motive power while driving increases the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect/repair or replace the alternator and the front valve cover gasket, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 121.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the crui...

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
