Hyundai has recalled these cars before too

Interestingly, this recall affecting the Hyundai Creta has come just days after Hyundai had recalled the Verna sedan due to a defect in the EOP controller. The Verna sedan also faced similar problems with the iVT.

Also, this latest recall from Hyundai India comes after the recall campaign for the Kia Seltos SUV in India, which affected 4,358 units of the car. Kia said the recall for the Seltos was issued due to a possible defect in the electronic oil pump controller. The iVT in the Hyundai Creta is basically a modified CVT gearbox.
