Hyundai Recalls 570,000 Sonatas and Accents.

Hyundai is recalling nearly a half-million midsize cars in the United States to replace the engines because of a manufacturing problem that could cause them to fail.BENGALURU — Hyundai Motors said it would recall 470,000 Sonata sedans in the US to replace faulty engine parts, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Hyundai Motor America is recalling the model year 2011-2012 cars as certain metallic debris may not have been fully removed when engine crankshafts were being manufactured, according to the documents.

The recall affected Sonatas manufactured between December 11 2009 and April 12 2012 at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing, Alabama, and equipped with either a 2l or 2.4l direct injection engine, the company said. The company says in documents that a worn connecting rod bearing will make a cyclical knocking noise, and it also could cause the oil pressure warning light to illuminate.

In June of 2015, NHTSA raised the issue with Hyundai, which said it didn’t consider the issue to be a safety problem because owners would get warnings. Dealers will inspect the cars and replace engine assemblies if necessary at no cost to owners, but the exact parts to be replaced were not specified in the documents.
