Description Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.
Consequences Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective action Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.
Notes Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

just purchased a 2011 sonata vin number5NPEC4AC3BH126436 AM I AFFECTED IN ANY WAY?

I purchase a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. At 32k miles my engine started knocking and stalling, i took it to the dealership where i was asked to pring in all my reciepts from oil changes, which i did. (this was in 2012 one year after i purchased it) i was told that i needed a new engine. They said I need a new engine because i drove the car with no oil, which wasnt true because i took all my reciepts from oil changes. Then i was told that because i did not change my oil EXACTLY every 3000 miles my warranty was void. After arguing with them for some time with no results i had to purchase a refurbished engine for $4500. And what do you know a few years later here comes the recall with exactly the problems i reported. I have put into the recall campaign for a refund but im not holding my breath. If anyone has recieved a refund on this please let me know

My 2011 Hyundai Sonata feels like it wont grip the road. I put on new tires and it still wont grip. the steering feels very lose, in fact I slid and hit a guardrail in a small amount of slush. I feel very unsafe in this car and of course, the dealership finds nothing wrong!!! They sold me an overpriced car which I hate!

We took our Sonata in for service on a small interior problem on the 24th of Sept and they did the recall check and update on the ESP. The car has never had a steering problem and we have been very happy with the vehicle as well as the dealership.

Do you drive a 2011 HYUNDAI SONATA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
