On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 3.5-liter V-6 engines, 4-wheel drive and antilock braking systems (ABS), if the brake pedal is depressed at speeds between 3 and 12 mph when the brake pad friction surfaces are wet, a vibration may occur between the brake discs and pads causing ABS sensor electronic signal noise to develop. At speeds below 5 mph, the ABS sensor signal noise may cause the ABS electronic control unit (ECU) to activate the ABS, extending the stopping distance. If an extended stopping distance occurs, it could result in a crash. 

Dealers will reprogram the ABS ECU. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
