Hyundai Motors has identified software issues in the 2016 Tucson model sold in US which disables acceleration. To rectify the problem the company has recalled 41,000 vehicles which feature seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission which were supplied by Dymos Incorporated and were produced between May, 20, 2015, and May 31, 2016.

The company has stated that the vehicle begins to accelerate and normal driving is resumed from halt only when the accelerator pedal is steadily depressed for approximately 1.5 to 2 seconds. However, if the accelerator pedal is repeatedly cycled, the vehicle will not accelerate. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also stated that in higher ambient temperatures and specific operating conditions, the transmission clutch application logic can result in a delayed engagement when accelerating from a stop.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted via dealerships and they will update the transmission control module software at no additional cost. The automaker has announced a recall over risk of an accident during driving in traffic. Until now, no collision or injuries have been reported by affected Tucson owners in the US. The SUV is expected to be introduced in the Indian market sometime by next month and revive Hyundai’s presence in the D-segment.
