Hyundai recalls 50,000 vehicles over problem with door locks

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-02-24

South Korean automaker Hyundai is to recall about 50,000 of its flagship Sonata sedan, sold in the domestic market and in the United States, due to defective front-door locks.

AFP - South Korea's top automaker Hyundai Motor said Wednesday it would recall its flagship Sonata sedan in the United States and the domestic market due to a door lock problem.

The firm said in a statement that 1,300 Sonata sedans already sold in the United States and another 46,000 cars in South Korea would be recalled.

Hyundai said the move was in response to reported defective front-door locks on some of its modified Sonatas launched last September. It said it ordered its US dealers on Tuesday to stop selling the model.

The recall was announced on the same day that Toyota's top US executive admitted that global recalls by the Japanese giant had "not totally" fixed dangerous safety flaws.
