Hyundai is recalling about 420,000 vehicles covering three models for separate problems in the United States, after already recalling 883,000 Sonata sedans this week. No injuries or accidents have been reported in the latest recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website on Friday. Some 225,000 Santa Fe crossover vehicles from the 2001 to 2006 model years are being recalled in 20 states because road salt can cause rust in a coil spring, the NHTSA said. The coil spring could fracture and puncture a tire. About 133,000 mid-size 2011 Sonata sedans are being recalled because leaking brake fluid can increase the distance required for a vehicle to stop, NHTSA said. The South Korean automaker is also recalling about 61,000 Veracruz crossovers from the 2007 to 2012 model years because an oil leak may lead to damage to the alternator and the vehicle's charging system, which could result in a full loss of power, the NHTSA said. On Thursday, the NHTSA reported that because of a potentially defective transmission-shift cable, about 883,000 Sonata sedans from 2011 to 2014 will be recalled.
