Hyundai issues a recall for Sonata in the US to fix gear shift component

Hyundai issues a recall for Sonata in the US to fix gear shift component

Hyundai has issued a recall for the Sonata in the US market to fix a potentially defective component in the transmission. The recall covers over 8,83,000 Sonata cars manufactured between December 11, 2009 and May 29, 2014. 

The faulty component in question is an automatic shift cable which tends to separate from the shift lever. This can prevent the gearbox from slotting into the desired gear, which could lead to a crash. Customers have been asked to contact dealerships to get the issue fixed free of cost. 

Besides the 2011 and 2014 models, Hyundai has also recalled the 5,650 units of the 2015 model in the US and Puerto Rico to fix an issue with the front brake callipers. Hyundai said that these brake callipers may crack over time, making them ‘less effective’ and raising the risk of a crash. Less than 200 units of these cars have been sold so far, and the rest of the cars are still in dealerships. 

Hyundai said that they haven’t yet heard of any injuries or accidents caused by these faulty components. There isn't any word from the company whether the Sonata sedans sold in India suffer from these issues.
