The GV80, Genesis first SUV, is suffering its first recall in South Korea due to shifting malfunctions after just one month since it was released and after simultaneous delays before launch.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said it is recalling that it is likely that shifting will not work properly due to a software error in the Stop & Go (ISG) device on the Genesis GV80.
The Stop & Go system automatically stops starting when the brakes are applied, and restarts when the user releases the brakes or presses the accelerator pedal. The recent GV80 shifting fault flaw seems to be a stop-and-go software error, not a transmission.
The 823 recalled vehicles will be undergoing free repairs through software updates at Hyundai’s direct service center and Blue Hands from February 27. This are bad news for Genesis, after the Ulsan plant chain is again halted due to Coronavirus.
