Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling 61,122 2007-2012 model-year Veracruz crossover SUVs because oil might leak from the front cylinder bank valve cover gasket and damage the alternator.

Such alternator damage could cause the charging system to become inoperative and result in engine power loss, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured from Dec. 26, 2006, though July 24, 2012. To resolve the problem, dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the alternator and front valve cover gasket. There will be no charge for this service.

This recall is expected to get under way by the end of September, NHTSA said. Vehicle owners can reach Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. The automaker’s number for this recall is 121.
