India recalls Pre-facelift Hyundai Creta iVT due to oil pump issue

Hyundai India has issued a recall for the pre-facelift version of the second-generation Creta’s iVT variants due to a faulty electronic oil pump (EOP) controller. The recall campaign impacts the SUV, but the number of affected units was not disclosed by the company.

The automaker has notified affected customers to visit Hyundai-authorised dealerships for inspection and repair of the iVT EOP controller. Owners can check if their vehicle is impacted by entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on Hyundai India’s official website. The company has assured free inspection and repair services for the affected cars.

This recall follows Hyundai’s recent recall of the Verna sedan for a similar issue with the iVT controller. The Creta and Verna share this component, highlighting the importance of resolving the EOP controller problem promptly. Additionally, Kia recently recalled the Seltos SUV in India for a similar electronic oil pump controller issue, affecting 4,358 units of the car.

The Hyundai Creta is a popular SUV in India and recently received a facelift with new design elements and features. The introduction of the N Line version has further enhanced the Creta’s appeal in the market. Both Kia and Hyundai are sister brands, sharing components and technologies, as seen in the common iVT gearbox used in the Creta and Seltos.
