2011 Hyundai Sonata Problems
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.
Parking lights not turning off intermittently or all the time. The common problem is with the cabin fuse box. Complete replacement of the assembly is necessary to fix the problem.

2011 Hyundai Sonata Recalls
The engine during manufacturing may have retained metallic debris from the crankshaft. Presence of this metallic debris could cause engine noise and failure. Dealers will inspect and replace affected engines as necessary, and extend the warranty of the engine short block to 10 years / 120,000 miles free of charge to resolve the concern.
Brake fluid may leak from the fuel lines between the master cylinder and the hydraulic electronic control unit. Dealers will replace the lines with revised parts free of charge to resolve the problem.
These vehicles are being recalled because the transmission shift cable may come loose from the shift lever pin. If this were to occur, the gear selected may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle could move in an unexpected direction. Also, if the parking brake is not set when the vehicle is parked, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly even if the indicated gear is "park". Dealers will inspect and repair the connection between the shift cable and the shift lever to correct this concern.
