My 2012 Sonata is having the same electrical board problem as the recalled 2011 model resulting in loss of steering. Is this covered under the 2011 umbrella recall for same issues?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fluids?

What fluids?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sonata yourself? What have you tried so far?

No..took to Hyundai dealership and was told it was the electrical board.

Sorry about the wait. Just checked and this year model has only one recall for steering that is for the shaft coupler. The board recall was ended with model year 2011 as the supposively fixed the issue it was experiencing with the boards.

For $26.00 I expect more than this.

The dealer will not fix this as tehy will not get reimbusement from hyundai. YOu will have to pay for this out of pocket. You can always contact hyndai directly and explain the situation and sometimes they are able to help you with cost of the repairs as it is a well known issue.

If it is a well known issue why will Hyundai not pay for repair?
Hyundai Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 8 months ago

As they have not issues a recall yet. Once they get enough complains they will need to.

As a single mother of two struggling to make ends meet this is unacceptable especially since the problem is the same as the 2011 models.
Hyundai Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

There is an option on hyundai's website where you put your vehicle's vin number and your complain. That way you can deal directly with the manufacture's repersentative than the dealer who is not going to put the repair if there is no recall.

What a disappointment thishas been.
Hyundai Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Sorry about that, but you are not the only one. I have seen vehicle manufacture help customer's with the vehicle if the dealers wont. This is your best shot other than paying for the repairs yourself.
