Now it’s Hyundai’s turn to have a recall

Filed under: economics — extrakorea @ 1:02 pm

Any gloating by Hyundai over Toyota’s recent misfortunes should be muted now. Because of a mechanical problem with the front-door latches on the new 2011 Sonata sedan, Korea’s biggest auto maker announced a recall of 46,000 units in South Korea and 1,300 units across the U.S. Hyundai received complaints that, in certain unusual circumstances, the latch becomes stuck, after which the doors don’t close properly, but there were no reports of injuries or of accidents. The voluntary recall will become effective in March, and only affects cars that were built until December 6.
