Hyundai recalls 263,000 cars due to power-steering problem

Hyundai recalls 263,000 cars due to power-steering problem

 

Hyundai is recalling about 263,000 cars in the U.S. and Canada because a sensor problem could cause drivers to lose power-assisted steering.

The company has not reported any injuries or accidents. A representative for Hyundai Motor America wasn't immediately available for comment.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a sensor in the affected cars could detect a discrepancy in the steering input and signals and disable power-assisted steering as a result.

Cars would revert to manual steering and require greater effort to steer at low speeds, raising the risk of a crash.

RECOMMENDED FOR YOU

The affected cars include model years 2008 to 2010 of Elantras and Elantra Touring vehicles made between Nov. 1, 2008 and April 30.

Owners can contact Hyundai's customer service at 1-855-671-3059.
