Hyundai recalling 470,000 Sonatas, 100,000 Accents

Hyundai is recalling nearly a half-million midsize cars in the U.S. to replace key engine parts because a manufacturing problem could cause them to fail.

The recall covers 470,000 Sonata sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years equipped with 2-litre or 2.4-litre gasoline engines. At the time, the Sonata was Hyundai’s top-selling vehicle in the U.S.

The Accent recall covers certain 2009 to 2011 models. It’s an expansion of a recall issued in 2013.

Hyundai says the brake light switch can fail, and the lights won’t come on when a driver steps on the brakes. Also, the cruise control may not be deactivated by stepping on the brake, and the gear shifter may get stuck in the “park” position.

The company says in documents posted by NHTSA that it has no reports of crashes or injuries.

Hyundai will replace the brake switch at no cost to owners starting Nov. 2, the company said.
