Hyundai recalls nearly 43K cars for brake lights

Hyundai is recalling nearly 43,000 luxury cars in the U.S. because the brake lights can fail to illuminate.

The recall covers certain Genesis cars from the 2009 to 2011 model years and the some Equus vehicles from 2011.

Hyundai documents posted Tuesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say the agency contacted Hyundai about the problem in October after noticing consumer complaints. There are no reports of crashes or injuries.

Dealers will repair the stop lamp switch circuit for free. Hyundai expects to begin notifying owners early next year.

The affected Genesis cars were made from April 30, 2008, to Nov. 21, 2010. Equus models being recalled were made from July 31, 2010, to Nov. 21, 2010.
