Hyundai Issues Recall for 173,000 Sonata Vehicles

Kathleen Becker8 months ago

Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling at least 173,000 Sonata vehicles in the U.S. due to a potentially defective power steering system.

Details of the Hyundai Sonata Recall

According to the Reuters, 2011 Sonata vehicles manufactured between December 2009 and October 2010 could pose a risk due to a possible damaged circuit board that can ultimately prevent power steering while driving.

If power steering were to stop it could cause the driver to lose control over the steering wheel even at low speeds, resulting in an accident.

Hyundai Motor Co. told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) it has not confirmed any accidents/or injuries to date. 

Hyundai Responds to Recall Concerns

Hyundai has been making the Sonata Sedan cars since December 2009, and by March 2015, for the U.S. market.  An investigation started by the number of warranty claims due to the loss of power steering with these vehicles.

Before October 2010 a supplier upgraded the circuit boards protective covering, finding the boards could very well become damaged over time.

Consumers that have questions or concerns regarding the recall may call their customer service at: (800) 633-5151 Monday through Friday, 5:00 am – 7:00 pm PST, and Saturday and Sunday, 6:30 am – 3:00 pm PST.
