Recall Alert: 2011 Hyundai Sonata


Vehicles Affected: More than 133,000 model-year 2011 Hyundai Sonata sedans manufactured between Dec. 11, 2009, and Sept. 1, 2010. See when your vehicle was built by checking the manufacturing sticker on the driver's-side doorjamb.

The Problem: The affected vehicles may experience a brake fluid leak from the two brake lines that connect the brake system's master cylinder to the hydraulic electronic control unit due to insufficient seal between the inner brake hose and metal brake line fitting. If the brake lines leak enough hydraulic fluid, the brake warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate and a longer stopping distance will be required, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake hoses with a revised service part free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin by the end of September. Owners can call Hyundai 800-633-5151, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.

Way too many recall notices are now posted on this website. Most if not all of these notices don't apply to us. Perhaps a new website for future recalls should be created. It could be called.....Fixing Tires.
