2011 Hyundai Sonata Recalls

Power Steering Assist Fails

The electronic power steering circuit board may be damaged and result in a loss of power steering assist. Dealers will replace the control unit for the electronic power steering free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brake Lights Stay Illuminated

The brake pedal stopper pad can deteriorate, resulting in the stop lamp switch plunger to remain extended when the brake pedal is released. This will cause the brake lights to stay illuminated, and will allow the automatic transmission shift lever to be moved out of park without depressing the brake pedal. Dealers will replace the brake pedal stopper pad with an improved part free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Coil Springs Break When Exposed To Road Salt

The front coil springs may fracture from corrosion that occurs due to exposure to road salt. Dealers will replace the front coil springs free of charge to resolve the concern.
