Vehicles Affected: Approximately 65,000 model-year 2015-16 Hyundai Sonata sedans manufactured between May 28, 2014, and Aug. 21, 2015
The Problem: The antilock braking system warning light will not illuminate in the event of a malfunction, although the brake system warning light will illuminate. If the driver is alerted that there is a brake system malfunction but not specifically in the ABS, the driver may operate the vehicle unaware that the vehicle’s brakes may lock up during hard braking, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will update the ABS control unit software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners Dec. 11. Owners can call the automaker at 855-671-3059, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
