RECALL: NHTSA Investigating Hyundai Genesis Brake Issue

Posted: Updated:

The US safety regulators are investigating a brake problem in the Hyundai Genesis.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration says it impacts about 40,000 cars from the 2009 model year.

Hyundai has issued a recall for 27,500 Genesis Luxury cars. 

Drivers say they've had to push harder than normal on the brake to stop.

One crash has been reported, but there have not been injuries.

Brake fluid in the cars will be changed and dealers will inspect brake control modules to see if replacement is necessary. 

This is the first investigation of NHTSA since the partial government shutdown ended.  
Dealers will pick up the cars and give customers loaner vehicles.
