Approximately 5,000 model-year 2020 Hyundai Sonata sedans are being recalled because the tire pressure label inside the driver’s door and the tire pressure information in the owner’s manual are wrong. The label and owner’s manual have the incorrect values for sidewall aspect ratios and may cause owners to install the wrong tires, potentially affecting vehicle handling and increasing the risk of a crash.
Hyundai will begin notifying owners on April 24. Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will install new label stickers over the tire pressure label on the driver’s door and in the owner’s manual.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
