 Defect summaryHyundai motor america (hyundai) is recalling certain model 2013 elantra vehicles manufactured december 1, 2012, to april 30, 2013. The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate allowing the brake light switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released.
 Consequence summaryIf the brake light switch plunger does not retract as it should when the brake pedal is not being pressed, the brake lights may stay illuminated preventing accurate communication to following vehicles that the vehicle is slowing or stopping. Additionally, if the brake switch plunger is not retracted, then the transmission can be shifted out of park without depressing the brake pedal. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
 Corrective actionHyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad with an improved part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on september 30, 2016. Owners may contact hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 146.
 Recall notesOwners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153).
