Faulty power steering sensor prompted Elantra recall

Hyundai Motor is recalling an estimated 263,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada to fix a problem in the power steering that may potentially cause collisions, according to a March 1 article on USA Today.

The recall covers previous models of Hyundai Elantra touring and sedan versions, all of which have a faulty sensor in the power steering. Operators of the recalled Elantras may experience difficulty controlling the vehicle if the power steering falters. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said that the problem may result in an increased risk of collisions. The South Korean automaker reportedly was not aware of any injuries or collisions involving the affected vehicles before they issued the recall. Hyundai dealers will notify Elantra owners to have their vehicles repaired for free.
