2011 Hyundai Sonata Recalls

The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

On certain vehicles, the center rear seat belt may incorporate a release mechanism that detaches both the lap and shoulder portion at the belt's lower anchor point. This design may not meet federal safety standards. If this seat belt is not properly anchored, it could increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the center rear seat belts in vehicles currently in dealer inventory. It has yet to be decided if vehicles already delivered to customers will be recalled.

Due to improper assembly, the steering intermediate shaft universal joint may become loose or completely disconnected from the steering gear. If this occurs, steering ability will be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the intermediate shaft universal joint connections for proper assembly and torque. Additionally, the power steering software will be updated. This recall is expected to begin by October 11, 2010. The Hyundai recall number is 097.
