The federal government has opened an investigation into possible steering problems in the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, which is made in Montgomery. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has received field reports alleging the separation of a joint that led to a complete loss of steering in the sedan or a loosening of a joint connection in the steering.
NHTSA says the vehicles cited in the reports were manufactured during the same month and had fewer than 600 miles on them at the time. The investigation involves an estimated 16,300 Sonatas. A Hyundai spokesman says the company received two reports citing steering problems and the two vehicles were repaired. According to Hyundai, there have been no injuries or crashes reported and the company is cooperating with the investigation.
