Hyundai has announced that it has issued a recall on 27,500 Genesis cars. The recall has to do with problems in the cars braking system. The recall covers 2009 through 2012 model year vehicles. About 69,000 of these vehicles were sold in 60% of the party been repaired to a company service campaign began in March.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail starting in November and dealers will pick up the cars and bring a loaner vehicle for the driver to use. The recall will see dealers change the brake fluid and inspect the electronic brake control modules to see if they need replaced.

The brake fluid used in the vehicles doesn't have a corrosion inhibitor and can build up on valves inside the braking system causing a potential loss of brake power. The recall affects cars constructed between April 1, 2008 through March 16, 2012.
