Hyundai said it is recalling the cars, which were built from Apr. 1, 2008, through Mar. 16, 2012, to replace the brake fluid.
The company had already initiated a service campaign in March to replace the brake fluid in the affected cars as they were brought into the dealers. The fluid had been replaced in about 60 percent, or about 40,000, of the vehicles, a spokesman said.
However, after receiving word that U.S. safety regulators had opened an investigation into an estimated 40,000 Genesis cars from model year 2009, Hyundai decided to recall the rest, the company said. Letters will be mailed to the affected owners starting next month.
