Recall: Hyundai 262000 Sonata, Azera, Santa Fe models

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) — Hyundai is recalling Sonata and Azera sedans in cold-weather states because road salt can corrode the rear suspension. The manufacturer also is recalling about 23,000 Santa Fe Sport SUVs because an axle can fail, causing the car to lose

The recalls affect 215,000 Sonata midsize sedans from the 2006 to 2010 model years, 24,000 Azera full-size sedans from 2006 to 2011, and 23,000 Santa Fe Sport 2013 models with front-wheel-drive and 2.4 liter, four-cylinder engines.

Hyundai says salt can corrode the rear suspension crossmember in the sedans, which is part of the vehicle's frame. In advanced cases, the crossmember could detach from the control arms that lead to the wheels, which could affect wheel alignment and increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will inform owners next month. Dealers will inspect the cars and repair or replace the defective parts.

The recall affects vehicles registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Delaware and Washington, D.C.

The Santa Fe models affected by the recall were built between July 11, 2012 through March 12 of this year.

Hyundai says the right axle shaft can fail in rare cases. If that happens, the SUVs can lose power or roll away if parked on a slope. The company says it's not aware of any crashes or injuries linked to the defect.

Owners are being notified by letter. Dealers will replace the axle shaft free of charge.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
