WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The federal government is fining Hyundai more than $17-million over a brake defect in its Genesis luxury cars.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the defect involves corrosion in key opponents of the brake system, reducing effectiveness.

The agency says Hyundai was aware in 2012 that brake fluids used in the model year 2009 to 2012 did not stop the corrosion in the brake system.

It also says instead of issuing a recall, Hyundai instructed dealers to change the brake fluid without explaining the consequences.

Hyundai eventually recalled 27,000 of the cars last year only hours before the government opened an investigation.
