  1. 2000 Hyundai Sonata SUSPENSION NHTSA Campaign #09V124000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 16, 2009
    • Vehicles Affected: 188,282

    Summary: Hyundai is recalling 188,282 MY 2001-2004 Sonata and MY 2001-2004 XG300 and XG350 vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. Road salt applied in these jurisdictions during the winter months may result in progressive, internal corrosion of the front sub-frame on the vehicles, and may result in thinning or perforation of the sub-frame steel. The corrosion is frequently visible and often discovered during inspection or routine maintenance, and owners may also hear noises or notice tire misalignment and steering pull. If these signals are undetected or unheeded, the corrosion may progress and the forward mounting of the lower control arm may detach from the sub-frame.

    Consequence: If that happens, the vehicle may lose drive power to the wheels, and the front wheel may make contact with the fender or wheel well, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will measure the thickness of the front sub-frame and inspect the front sub-frame for corrosion damage and, if necessary, the front sub-frame will be replaced with a new sub-frame that incorporates additional holes in the upper and lower panels. If the front sub-frame does not require replacement, the dealer will add drainage holes to the sub-frame and will treat the sub-frame with rust-proofing material to stop the corrosion process. This procedure will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151.

  2. 2000 Hyundai Sonata AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW NHTSA Campaign #02V105000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 09, 2002
    • Vehicles Affected: 145,355

    Summary: On certain passenger vehicles, an intermittent condition that leads to the supplemental restraint system (SRS) air bag warning light illumination could result from motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and side impact air bag wiring harness connector which mount to the adjustable seat cushion assembly. This condition only relates to the side impact air bags and could prevent air bag deployment during a crash where such deployment should occur.

    Consequence: Non-deployment of the SRS side impact air bag could increase the risk of injury during a side impact crash.

    Actions: Dealers will more securely fasten the side impact air bag wiring harnesses and connectors to the vehicle's front seat cushion frames. Owner notification began May 28, 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

  3. 2000 Hyundai Sonata AIR BAGS NHTSA Campaign #01V347000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 06, 2001
    • Vehicles Affected: 86,513

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The supplemental restraint system (SRS) air bag warning light could illuminate due to motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and side impact air bag wiring harness connector that mount to the adjustable seat cushion assembly. This condition only relates to the driver and/or passenger seat-mounted side impact air bag(s).

    Consequence: This condition could prevent seat mounted side impact air bag deployment during an accident where such deployment should occur. Non-deployment of the SRS side impact air bags could increase the risk of injury during an accident where side impact air bag deployment is intended.

    Actions: Dealers will more securely fasten the front seat side impact air bag wiring harness and connectors to the vehicle's front seat cushion frames. Owner notification will occur in six mailings on May 27, June 3, June 10, June 17, June 24, and July 1, 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.

  4. 2000 Hyundai Sonata ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING NHTSA Campaign #00V259001

    • Date Announced: SEPTEMBER 11, 2000
    • Vehicles Affected: 165,977

    Summary: Vehicle description: Some Sonata vehicles equipped with 2.5 liter V-6 engines and all elantra model vehicles may have experienced intermittent low-speed engine stalling, which could occur if the maf (mass air flow) sensor electrical signal is interrupted as a result of engine vibration transmitted to the maf sensor connector wiring harness.

    Consequence: This condition can cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will re-route the maf sensor connector wiring harness. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #00V259001 »
