Hyundai is recalling its popular Sonata midsize sedan to fix problems with the gear shift levers.
The recall covers 883,000 cars from the 2011-14 model years.
The automaker says the automatic transmission shift cable can separate from the shift lever. If that happens, the lever may not show the correct gear, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, if the driver stops the car and puts the transmission in "park," the car may still be in gear and could roll away, Hyundai said in documents posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Other symptoms include an inability to start the car.
Hyundai has received 1,171 warranty claims about the problem. It says there have been no crashes or injuries caused by the problem. The Sonatas being recalled were made from Dec. 11, 2009 through May 29, 2014.
Hyundai will notify owners between now and the end of September. Details: 800-633-5151.
Also, Hyundai is recalling more than 419,000 cars and SUVs:
225,000 Santa Fe SUVs from 2001-06 to replace front coil springs that can rust and crack in cold weather states.
133,075 Sonatas from 2011 as brake fluid can leak and cause higher stopping distances.
61,122 Veracruz SUVs because oil can leak onto the alternator, which could cause stalling.
Two models of the Tommee Tippee Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads. The product comes in three parts: baby unit, parent unit and movement sensor pad. This includes models 1082S and 1094S. Model numbers are on the bottom of the base of the recharger and on the bottom of the camera.
They were sold at Toys "R" Us/Babies "R" Us stores and Amazon.com, since September 2011.
A child can pull the sensor pad cord into the crib and wrap it around his or her the neck, posing a strangulation hazard.
