Hyundai Motors India has announced a voluntary recall for 7,698 units of the Creta and Verna due to a potential issue with the electronic oil pump controller, which may impact the performance of the oil pump. All the recalled variants were powered by the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with CVT automatic transmission.

Last month, the Kia Seltos was also recalled for the same issue.

  • Hyundai customers can also contact their nearest authorised service centre or call its customer care centre at 1800-114-645 to check if their Creta or Verna are part of the recall campaign.
  • While Hyundai hasn’t revealed if the affected units are safe to drive in current conditions, we recommend that you verify whether your vehicle is also part of the recall campaign. And if it is, we advise getting your car inspected without any delay.

What Is An Eelectronic Oil Pump Controller?

The electronic oil pump controller in a vehicle is tasked with managing the oil flow within a powertrain. Its primary role is to ensure adequate lubrication at all times, for the powertrain’s smooth operation and longevity. Moreover, the electronic control aspect enables precise adjustment of oil flow based on various factors like engine speed, temperature, and load conditions. This precision enhances both performance and efficiency.
