Hyundai has announced a recall for their 2011 Hyundai Sonata. The reason for the recall is because there are concerns that a circuit board that affects power steering can break down and cause power steering to fail, making the vehicle difficult to steer. Hyundai isn’t aware of any crashes resulting from the failing circuit board and they are taking precautions so the loss of power steering doesn’t potentially lead to crashes. Hyundai began investigating reports of failed power steering last year after receiving warranty claims.

Hyundai is doing the right thing for its customers by announcing this recall and repairing the problem free of charge. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same thing about other manufacturers, such as the makers of Takata airbags and GM ignition switches. Some large manufacturers take action on faulty products after it is too late and someone has been injured. Companies that proactively address potential safety concerns should be commended.
