There's Been ANOTHER Massive Car Recall In Australia

Last week news broke that around 800,000 Mitsubishi and Toyota cars would be recalled in Australia due to varying faults.

And it looks like the recall nightmare is continuing into this week as almost every one of the Hyundai Tucson SUVs imported into Australia since the new model went on sale 12 months ago are being recalled around Australia.

The reason behind this latest recall? The bonnet can fly open and block the driver’s view without warning.

A bulletin issued on the website says: “The bonnet secondary safety latch has a risk of being unlatched when the vehicle is in motion. Under certain conditions the bonnet can lift suddenly and block the front vision of the driver.”

Customers will need to make an appointment with their local dealership to fix the issue and the repair work will be done free of charge.

It's believed around 17,000 cars will be recalled.
