Hyundai is recalling its flagship Palisade SUV due to an issue with the brakes.
“Due to a manufacturing issue, the brake fluid may be contaminated,” the company says in its recall notice.
“This can cause the master cylinder inner cup seal to expand resulting in a reduced braking performance.
“A reduction in braking performance could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”

If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll need to contact a Hyundai dealership to have the master brake cylinder and brake fluid replaced, free of charge.
“Until the repair is carried out, consumers of affected vehicles are advised to pay attention to any abnormality in the brake pedal feel and be conscious of the vehicle stopping distance,” the company advises.
