A potential loss of visibility while driving is prompting a vehicle recall from Hyundai.

The auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2012 Genesis and 2011-2013 Equus vehicles. The windshield wiper motor cover seal on the affected vehicles may degrade, allowing corrosion on the circuit board. The corrosion can cause loss of wiper function.

Broken wipers during inclement weather can decrease driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

About 18,700 are being included in this recall.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wiper motor cover and seal, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 22, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Hyundai customer service at (800) 633-5151.
