Hyundai Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Hyundai is recalling 91,350 MY 2002-2003 Hyundai Sonata vehicles. Repeated use of the interior door handle may cause wear of the chrome plate. If the top edge of the handle has very thin chrome plating, that portion of the plating may wear away more easily than more thickly plated areas as the door handle is used. The worn chrome plating on the upper edge of the handle may result in a crack or separation between the chrome plating on the inboard and outboard surfaces of the handle, which may form a sharp edge.
Dealers will repair the chrome plated interior door handle free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during June 2009. Owners may contact Hyundai customer assistance center at 1-800-633-5151.
