2015 Hyundai Sonata Gets a Second Recall - Unhaggle

Posted by | July 28, 2014 | Ownership | No Comments

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata already goes through a second recall.

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata has only just launched, but it’s already going through a second recall. This time, the new sedan gets pulled for fracturing brake calipers.

Hyundai’s recall campaign is poised to remove 5,650 Sonatas from the streets in total. According to the company, one or both of the front brake calipers can facture due to a “manufacturing error.” However, the South Korean automaker promises to replace the parts through its dealer network free of charge as soon as possible.

The issue came to the forefront when one of the customers has reportedly complained that the brake pedal of their new-purchased 2015 Sonata touched the floor when braking at stop lights. Once the dealer service department checked the vehicle, they noticed that one of the calipers was fractured, confirming the problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that Hyundai contacted the Sonata owners regarding the brake calipers issue on June 19, asking them to stop driving the vehicles. Additionally, the brake caliper supplier has analysed and confirmed the defect, having connected it to a single-day production error that affected the fatigue resistance of the caliper’s cast aluminum alloy.

Just a few weeks ago, Hyundai pulled 2,138 models to prevent issues with a wiring harness. The problem could either reduce the amount of power steering help or make it hard to shift out of Park. At the time, however, most of the vehicles were not in customer hands, making the process easier.

There is no word yet as to how many Sonatas will be affected by the recall in Canada.
