Among the nineteen (19) recalls the NHTSA announced this March comes news of the following:

Logo - Hyundai Motor AmericaHyundai Motor America (“Hyundai”), a Fountain Valley, California establishment and a subsidiary of Hyundai Motors of Seoul, South Korea, has recalled an estimated 5,044 model year 2020 Hyundai Sonata vehicles produced between October 22, 2019 and February 13, 2020 marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V122000 reports the tire pressure label inside the driver’s door and the owner’s manual state an incorrect tire size. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

According to the NHTSA, the incorrect tire information may mislead the vehicle owner to install the wrong tire size, potentially affecting vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify registered owners, and dealers will install new label stickers over the tire pressure label and in the owner’s manual, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 24, 2020. Owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service toll-free at 1-855-371-9460 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Pacific Standard Time (“EST”). Hyundai’s number for this recall is 190.
