Hyundai Motor America is recalling more than 167,000 2021-23 Palisade vehicles in the U.S. for possible windshield wiper failure.
The recall is an expansion of a previous recall for the same issue.
Snow or ice buildup might cause the windshield wiper motor to fail or operate intermittently.
Windshield wiper failure can reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash, according to NHTSA.
Hyundai previously recalled 122,919 Palisade vehicles for windshield wiper failure in August 2022. The Office of Defects Investigation received six additional complaints of wipers failing in wintry conditions for vehicles excluded from this recall. A recall query has been opened to assess the scope and remedy of the initial recall.
Dealers will replace the driver-side windshield wiper arm at no charge. Owners are expected to be notified by mail beginning May 16. Hyundai will also reimburse owners who previously paid for remedies to the recall issue. The root cause of the issue is still under investigation, NHTSA said.
A Hyundai spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
