WASHINGTON - Hyundai will pay a large fine for not disclosing a defect in a timely manner.
The automaker's Genesis models from 2009 through 2012 had a brake defect that could've increased the risk of a crash and led to a recall.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Hyundai knew about the problem since 2012.
Now the company has agreed to pay a civil penalty of more than $17 million for failing to report the defect quickly.
There were no fatalities reported, related to the issue.
