Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling 81,000 2016 model-year Tucson compact SUVs because of faulty secondary hood latches, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers vehicles manufactured from May 19, 2015 to March 14 of this year.

If the primary hood latch has been released, and the vehicle is driven, the secondary hood latch may not adequately secure the hood to prevent it from opening while the vehicle is in motion, NHTSA said on its website. This condition increases the risk of a crash.

Hyundai dealers will replace the secondary hood latch, free of charge, to address the problem. The recall is expected to begin July 15.

Vehicle owners can reach Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 145.
