Hyundai Sonata ProblemsNoise on Startup Due to Failing Timing Chain Tensioner
If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct.

Hyundai Sonata RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Does Not Inflate Properly

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.
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.
