New Delhi, May 24 :
Automobile major Hyundai Motor India Saturday said that it has initiated a process to recall and set right a technical glitch in its sports utility vehicle (SUV) 2011 model Santa Fe.
According to the company, it is recalling 2,437 units of Santa Fe to replace a malfunctioning “Stop Lamp Switch” which is mounted near the brake pedal mechanism.
