The 2013 Hyundai Elantra is being recalled for a problem with the functioning of the brake lights. A total of 64,500 Elantras have been identified with the concern.

Hyundai has found a defect with the switch that operates the brake lights which in turn prevents the brake lights from turning off. Under such circumstances, this could cause confusion with others on the road as it would be difficult to judge if the Elantra was braking or not. 

The car maker has added that the brake pedal stopper wears over time and lets the brake light switch to remain depressed in the process. In fact, it remains depressed even after the pedal is released. It was in 2014 when the car maker was first alerted of the problem after attending to a number of warranty claims in connection to this. And it just kept increasing in 2015 and 2016, pushing Hyundai to follow up with this recall. 

Dealers in the US have been directed to call for the affected cars and replace the brake pedal stopper pad at no cost to the user.
