Recall of Hyundai Sonata

I heard on the radio that they will be sending a letter the beginning of April. The recall is for the  defective seat belts. Approximately 928,000 people will be notified. They said that Sonata is the main car but there may be others.

Re: Recall of Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai Motor America is conducting a safety recall to inspect, and if necessary replace, the engine assembly in Model Year 2011 and 2012 Hyundai Sonata vehicles equipped with 2.0 liter turbo and 2.4 liter gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines manufactured at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.

Hyundai is initiating this action to ensure the safety and quality of its vehicles and the continued satisfaction of its customers.


If your vehicle is a 2013 or 2014 model year Sonata, you may be eligible for an engine warranty extension.


Hyundai Motor America has decided to extend the warranty for the engine's "short block" assembly (consisting of the engine block, crankshaft and bearings, connecting rods and bearings, and pistons) on 2011-2014 Sonatas manufactured at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama to 10 years from the date of original delivery or the date of first use, or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first.


Hyundai is recalling 977,778 Hyundai Sonatas and Sonata Hybrids for seat belts that could detach from their anchor pretensioners, which could lead to an injury. The recall affects 2010- cars including 2011-2014 standard Sonatas built from December 11, 2009 to May 29, 2014 and 2011-2015 Sonata Hybrids built from December 2, 2010 to January 9, 2015.

Re: Recall of Hyundai Sonata

Thank you both.  I had looked it up before Sunshine provided additional details.  My car is one of those affected.
