Hyundai Sonata Recalls
The Hyundai Sonata has also been the subject of numerous product and safety recalls.
In March 2017, Hyundai recalled about 978,000 Sonatas sold in the U.S. due to a seat belt glitch that led to a least one minor injury. The recalled affected 2011-2014 Sonata midsize models and 2011-2015 Sonata hybrids. The seat belts may not have been properly attached to the anchor pretensioner, which could cause the seat belt to detach from the anchor during a collision. Dealers were instructed to inspect the seat belt and re-attach it properly.
That month, Hyundai also recalled certain model year 2013-2104 Sonata and Santa Fe Sport vehicles due to premature bearing wear within the engine which could result in the engine seizing, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers were instructed to inspect the engine and replace the engine short block as necessary.
In December 2016, certain model year 2017 Sonatas were recalled due to the same air bag defect that affected the Elantra. Dealers were instructed to replace the driver’s frontal air bag module.
