Hyundai Motor Co. said it will recall about 140,000 Sonata sedans in the U.S. because of a defect that could result in reduced or complete loss of steering


Really? 150,000 cars?

That's not just a lot full of cars, thats hundred of dealerships. Thats a massive mistake, so massive it seems almost intentional?
here's the link

The Major believes there's a misunderstanding of scale here.

Recruit, just because something seems large to you personally, doesn't mean it's anything more than a fart in a hurricane.



Toyota voluntarily recalled more than 1.1 million 2005 through 2008 model Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks on Thursday over faulty engine-control computers that could cause the vehicles to stall in traffic.

The huge recall — Toyota's 15th in 2010 — came just two days after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced it was ratcheting up its investigation of the stalling problem. NHTSA said it has received 163 complaints.

Emphasis the Major.

One recall for 140,000 cars doesn't seem like so much anymore, does it recruit?

Dismissed.

Article from last year. Looks like Hyundai sells quite a few cars here in the U.S. I know I see quite a lot of them driving to work in the morning.

As Car Sales Collapse, Hyundai Becomes The Most Successful Car Company In America

And this recall is on 2011 model year cars.

Hyundai recalls 139,500 Sonatas in US on steering


The recall affects 2011 models built between Dec. 11, 2009 and Sept. 10, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website Sunday. Some of the cars have steering column shafts with connections that may not have been tightened enough or were improperly assembled. As a result, the steering wheel could become separated from the column or a driver could lose the ability to properly steer the car.


Sounds to me to be a problem in connector torque settings during assembly. Why you think a car company would do this intentionally to itself is beyond my understanding.

Yes this is true, but that's in multiple countries, over a span of 3 years.

And this (Hyundai) loss of control allows for much greater chances of death, as opposed to your engine simply turning off. Ill even turn my engine off on steep downhills, to save gas.

Looks like BMW and Rolls Royce felt left out of the recall party.

BMW Recalls 350,800 Vehicles on Brake-System Fault


Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the world’s biggest maker of luxury cars, said it’s recalling 350,800 BMW-brand and Rolls-Royce models worldwide to repair a power-brake system fault.

The voluntary recall involves fixing brake-pressure pumps on 345,000 BMW 5-, 6- and 7-Series models and 5,800 Rolls-Royce cars built from 2002 until 2010, Frank Strebe, a spokesman, said today in a phone interview from the Paris Motor Show. The new version of the 5-Series sedan isn’t affected, he said.

The recall includes 198,000 BMW and Rolls-Royce cars in the U.S., according to the company’s North American unit.


If 140,000 is intentional, then what's 198,000?
