Tennessee is not among the states listed in a recent recall by the Hyundai car company. The company issued the orders after they were made aware of a control arm that could turn their vehicles into defective products. The company released a statement saying that the control arm has a tendency to rust under certain conditions. The rust can cause cracks in the arm and disrupt the ability for the driver to control the steering wheel.
The regional recall is common practice for car companies in order to repair vehicles that are at the highest risk. In this case, the Entourage is at greatest risk in states that are labeled as cold. Elements that appear to pose the highest threat include the salt used to clear roads of snow and water. Hyundai says that they have not received any complaints of accidents or deaths in connection with the problem.
