Recalls for 2014 Hyundai Sonata Limited
2014 HYUNDAI SONATA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V152000
Component: SEAT BELTS:FRONT:ANCHORAGE
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America
Manufacture Dates: 12/11/2009 - 05/29/2014
Potential Units Affected: 977778
Defect Description:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2011-2014 Sonata and 2011-2015 Sonata Hybrid vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the seat belt linkages for both front seat belts may detach from the seat belt anchor pretensioners.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash, if the seat belts detach from the anchor pretensioners, it can increase the risk of injury.
Action to take:
Hyundai will notify owners and dealers will inspect the connection between the seat belt linkages and the seat belt anchor pretensioners, repairing them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 7, 2017. Owner's may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai's number for the recall is 160.

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor America
Manufacture Dates: 03/21/2012 - 05/29/2014
Potential Units Affected: 572000
Defect Description:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2013-2014 Sonata and Santa Fe Sport vehicles. Machining errors during the engine manufacturing process may cause premature bearing wear within the engine.
Consequence:
Bearing wear may result in the engine seizing, increasing the risk of a crash.

2014 HYUNDAI SONATA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V434000
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Manufacturer: Hyundai Motor Company
Manufacture Dates: 12/11/2009 - 05/29/2014
Potential Units Affected: 883000
Defect Description:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Sonata vehicles manufactured December 11, 2009, through May 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from from the shift lever pin.
Consequence:
If the transmission shift cable detaches, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver parks the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position and the parking brake is not applied, there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Action to take:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, repair the connection between the shift cable and shift lever, free of charge. The recall began in September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 123.
