2011 Hyundai Sonata Recalls

Drive Train,July 18, 2014
RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

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.
