Along with that Sonata hybrid models manufactured from 2011 to 2015 will be recalled as well.

If any problem will be found in these linkages then the dealers will replace the faulty parts. All the replacements will be free of cost for customers. The recall is supposed to start from April 7th.

All the people having the affected vehicles will be able to check the inclusion criteria on the official website of Hyundai.  Last year around 470,000 Sonatas were recalled due to a faulty circuit board.
