Intermittent steering has never been a popular automotive option. A lack of such vital control is what brought on the latest Hyundai Sonata recall, notes Consumer Reports. Beginning in the month of October, Hyundai will recall 144,000 Sonatas due to steering column issues. Mechanical defect or breakdown can lead to a lack of steering control, which is exceedingly dangerous.
Separated universal joint connections prompted Hyundai Sonata recall
Bad parts, botched construction or loose nuts could all contribute to the problem in Hyundai Sonatas made from December 11, 2009 through September 10, 2010. Those with Sonatas in question should go to their dealer for repair and power steering software update, all done at no cost to the consumer. Consumer Reports writes that these free repairs will be handled with the utmost efficiency.For further questions, dial 800-633-5151 to reach Hyundai’s guest service experience.
Steering recalls for both Hyundai and Kia
Chosun Ilbo reports that the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has its eyes on Hyundai and Kia for steering-related recall issues. The Kia Soul has received a single complaint only, but that complaint went viral on YouTube. Speculation on the part of Chosun Ilbo is that the U.S. government has it in for Asian automakers ever since Toyota went before Congress, but such allegations have not been proven.
The Hyundai Sonata and Kia Soul happen to be Hyundai-Kia’s flagship models in the U.S.. In the first seven months of 2010, 108,000 Sonatas were sold in America, accounting for 46 percent of total sales by the automaker in the nation. Chosun Ilbo writes that 8,000 units of the Kia Soul were exported to the U.S. in July alone. According to sales estimates, more than 10,000 Kia Soul cars will be sold each month for the rest of the year.
