    NHTSA came out with four different recalls on Monday which affect the
    following Hyundai models.

    2005-2008 Accent, Azera, Elantra, Entourage, Santa Fe, Sonata, Tuscon,
    and Vercruz for problems with the brake light switch. 531,000
    affected vehicles. 5 reported incidents. http://bit.ly/jAidb

    1999-2004 Sonata, and 2001-2004 XG300 and XG350 for suspension rusting
    problems in areas where roads are salted in winter. 175,000 affected
    cars. Less than 10 reported incidents. http://bit.ly/16cpWd

    2001-2003 Elantra and 2003 Tiburon for front control arm rusting in
    areas where roads are salted in winter 170,000 affected cars. 30
    reported incidents, approximately. http://bit.ly/jnCMD

    2001-2003 Santa Fe for rear suspension rusting in areas where roads
    are salted in winter. 85,000 affected vehicles. 50-60 reported
    incidents. http://bit.ly/1ax0RJ

    The shortened links go to the really long NHTSA urls for the recall
    pages. I have noted the reported incidents count to give some idea
    of the scope of the reported problems. Not every problem gets
    reported so take it for what it's worth.
