By Staff Writer May 03, 2018

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling 580,058 2011-13 Sonata and 2011-12 Sonata Hybrid vehicles.


On Feb. 27, Hyundai notified NHTSA that it was recalling 154,753 model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. On April 18, Hyundai expanded the recall to include an additional 425,305 model year 2012-13 Sonata and 2011-12 Sonata Hybrid vehicles.


In the event of a crash, the air bag control unit may short circuit, preventing the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags from deploying.

The remedy for this recall is still under development.

The recall began on April 20.
