Hyundai Motor Company will conduct a voluntary recall in the United States to inspect and, if necessary, replace the front door latches of approximately 5,000 model year 2011 Sonatas, produced December 11, 2009 February 15, 2010. Of this number, approximately 1,300 cars have been delivered to customers. Hyundai Motor America began shipping replacement door latches to dealers on Wednesday, Feburary 24, for those vehicles that require latch replacement. Sonata vehicle sales have resumed after a short stop sale that allowed us to get the new latches to our dealers.
Hyundai is voluntarily initiating this action to ensure the safety and quality of vehicles and the continued satisfaction of our customers. Dealers will make the repairs, which should take less than an hour, free of charge.
