Everything was going perfectly for Hyundai and their new Sonata. But an issue came along upsetting the status quo! Hyundai had to issue a recall after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirmed a problem in the car’s steering wheel column. Apparently some universal joint connections are either improperly assembled or insufficiently tightened. And it’s a big recall with 139,500 units involved. The affected cars are built between December 11, 2009, through September 10, 2010

The affected cars are built between December 11, 2009, through September 10, 2010. The worst-case scenario is that the loose connections may result in 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.

The dealers will inspect the whole steering column for assembly and torque, and will also update the power steering software free of charge.
