Recently, Hyundai Australia was forced to recall one of the rising electric car products, the Ioniq 5. There are approximately 578 units of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 that were forced to be recalled in Australia.
As reported by Carsales Australia on Tuesday (7/6/2022), Hyundai said the software problem that occurred came from the Shift Control Unit which was suspected of having an error in the software programming. This problem will make the car can move on its own even though the car is parked.
According to Hyundai, the Software Shift Control Unit or SCU system makes a car that is already in P or Parking gear suddenly able to run on its own or move forward slowly. Of course, this problem has become a serious problem considering this is not the first time the Ioniq 5 has been recalled globally.
Because previously in mid-May, there were about 10 thousand Ioniq 5 units in America that were affected by a recall for the same reason. Apart from the Ioniq 5, Kia’s single base car, the EV6, also experienced the same recall in the US.
For the Australian market itself, there are a total of 578 Ioniq 5 units affected by this software problem recall. The Hyundai Australia party has also asked consumers whose cars have been affected by this recall to immediately contact the official Hyundai Blue Drive dealer to immediately carry out this recall.
Hyundai Australia itself said that for the recall and replacement of this software, consumers don’t need to pay a penny or it’s free
