  3. 2015 Hyundai Sonata ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INSTRUMENT PANEL NHTSA Campaign #15V678000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 20, 2015
    • Vehicles Affected: 64,744

    Summary: Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Sonata vehicles manufactured May 28, 2014, to August 21, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with an Antilock Braking System (ABS) warning light intended to warn the driver if there is an ABS malfunction. In the event of an ABS malfunction, the Brake System warning light will illuminate, but the ABS warning light will not illuminate.
