2011 Hyundai Sonata Recalls
The power steering assist may fail, resulting in more difficult steering. This could result in loss of vehicle control and a crash.
The brake lights may stay illuminated when the brake pedal is released, which can prevent drivers from knowing if the vehicle is slowing or stopping. Additionally, the shift lever for the automatic transmission may be moved from the park position without depressing the brake pedal. This could cause the vehicle to roll unintentionally.
In cold weather states where road salt is used during icy conditions, the front coil springs could corrode and break, resulting in possible contact with a tire and loss of vehicle control.
The engine may develop a knocking noise and could fail due to a manufacturing process allowing excessive metallic debris to remain after the crankshaft of the engine was manufactured and installed. This could result in the engine stopping and stalling, resulting in potential of a crash.
Brake fluid may leak, which can result in brake warning light coming on and the loss of effective braking.
The gear selected may not be properly shown by the transmission gear indicator.
Over 1,000,000 Hyundai vehicles are being recalled because the stop light switch can fail, resulting in loss of brake light operation and various other electrical concerns.
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. Only vehicles in dealer inventory are being recalled at this time.
The steering column shaft may become disconnected from the steering gear. If this occurs, steering ability will be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
