Hyundai Recalls Over 2,000 Sonatas Over Wiring Harness

Hyundai is recalling more than 2,000 new Sonatas in the U.S. just a month after the sedan hit showrooms there.

"A poor connection within the vehicle's wiring harness may result in a reduction of steering assist from the vehicle's motor driven power steering system or the inability to move the vehicle's shifter from the 'park' position," the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday.

The recall covers 2,138 vehicles manufactured on May 2-23 this year at the automaker's plant in Alabama.

The automaker blamed workers at the factory for the problem and insisted that they have no issues aside from a warning light on the dashboard.
