new Hyundai Recall

October 3, 2010

Hyundai has announced a recall of the new 2011 Sonata, affecting approximately 139,500 vehicles. To put that number in perspective, Hyundai sold approximately 22,000 Sonatas in August 2010.

Hyundai has said a manufacturing defect could lead to a loss of steerring control. The fact it was a manufacturing defect is significant, in that there is no dispute that this was Hyundai’s fault, and should be covered under warranty, not a result of misuse of the vehicle.

Of course, the NHTSA had been investigating since August, before Hyundai announced in late September the voluntary recall.  While no related injuries have been reported, it is unclear how many complaints or warranty repairs have been attempted, or refused, to this point.
