NHTSA Vehicle Safety Recalls


Recall Number: 14V434000

Recall Date: 07/18/2014

Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

Problem Summary: Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Sonata vehicles manufactured December 11, 2009, through May 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from from the shift lever pin.

Consequence: If the transmission shift cable detaches, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver parks the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position and the parking brake is not applied, there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, repair the connection between the shift cable and shift lever, free of charge. The recall began in September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 123.

Recall Number: 12V352000

Recall Date: 07/24/2012

Component: AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW

Problem Summary: HYUNDAI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012-2013 HYUNDAI SONATA PASSENGER CARS, MANUFACTURED FROM JANUARY 24, 2012, THROUGH JUNE 21, 2012. THE CURTAIN SIDE AIRBAGS ON THESE VEHICLES MAY INFLATE WITHOUT DEPLOYMENT COMMAND DUE TO AN ERROR DURING MANUFACTURING.

Consequence: THE CURTAIN AIRBAG MAY INFLATE WITHOUT DEPLOYMENT COMMAND AND INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE. ADDITIONALLY, AN UNEXPECTED DEPLOYMENT WOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT DRIVER DISTRACTION AND WOULD LIMIT THE DRIVER'S VISIBILITY, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

What Owners Should Do: HYUNDAI DEALERS WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CURTAIN SIDE AIRBAGS FREE OF CHARGE. THIS RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI AT 1-800-633-5151.
