Hyundai Motor Co is going to recall 173,000 models from year 2011 Sonata cars in the United States market for a possibly malfunctioning power steering system, US security officials stated in a filing on Friday.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that the vehicles made from late December 2009 through late October 2010 could be having a damaged motherboard that might trigger the loss of power steering.
The loss of power steering can boost the chances of the danger of a crash, particularly at low speeds, NHTSA stated.
The firm told the NHTSA it has not identified any injuries or crashes connected to this concern.
Hyundai told the NHTSA that it has been making the Sonata sedan for the United States market from December 2009, and by March 2015, the variety of guarantee claims due to lost power steering set off a firm investigation.
In January of this year, it was figured out that prior to October 2010, when a supplier upgraded the protective covering of the circuit board, the boards could be damaged in time.
