Hyundai has recalled most 2011 Sonatas, its midsize sedan, to fix a glitch that could cause loss of power steering, potentially leading to a crash. Some 173,000 cars made from Dec. 11, 2009, to Oct. 31, 2010 are covered under the recall. Hyundai told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that an electronic power steering circuit board can become damaged, resulting in loss of power steering. If that happens, the steering wheel can still be turned, but it will take a lot more effort, and could result in a crash. The problem will be fixed by replacing the circuit board, the automaker told NHTSA in a filing.
