2012 Hyundai Sonata Recalls

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.

Engine Knocking Noise And Failure

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.

Shift Indicator Concern

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.
