2011 Hyundai Sonata recall issued due to steering problems | Hyundai-Blog

Hyundai Motor Company is going to recall 139,5oo units of its 2011 Sonata sedan. The recall will affect 2011 Hyundai Sonata models produced between Dec. 11, 2009 and Sept. 10, the NHTSA announced yesterday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report at safercar.gov identifies the issue says “the steering column intermediate shaft universal joint connections may have been either improperly assembled or insufficiently tightened.” The consequence could be “a complete separation or compromised attachment of the connections, such that the driver could experience a loss of, or reduction in, steering capability increasing the risk of a crash.”
