Hyundai Motor America is recalling 8,176 model year 2019-2020 Nexo Fuel Cell and model year 2019-2021 Kona Electric vehicles.

The automobile manufacturing company stated that the Integrated Electronic Brake (IEB) system may detect an abnormal sensor signal, and as a result, may significantly reduce braking performance, agency report said.

Reduced braking power could lengthen the distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

In connection with what to do, Hyundai will notify affected owners, and dealers will update the IEB software free of charge.

The current recall is expected to begin January 22, 2021.

Meanwhile, owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service on (855) 371-9460, and the number for this recall is 199.
