Hyundai recalls 883K Sonatas to fix gear shifters
Hyundai is recalling its popular Sonata midsize sedan to fix problems with the gear shift levers.
The recall covers 883,000 cars from the 2011 through 2014 model years.
The Korean automaker says the automatic transmission shift cable can separate from the shift lever. If that happens, the lever may not show the correct gear, increasing the risk of a crash.
The company says in documents posted Wednesday by U.S. safety regulators that it has received 1,171 warranty claims about the problem, plus seven other reports with related symptoms. The documents don't say if there have been any crashes or injuries.
Hyundai will notify owners by letter between now and the end of September. Dealers will inspect the shift cables and repair the connection if needed.
