Over 160,000 Sonata and Genesis Cars Recalled with Corroded Parking Brake Switches

Hyundai is recalling 161,000 cars for issues with parking brake switch issues.

According to Hyundai, the warning light used to indicate when the parking brake is applied may not illuminate due to corrosion of the parking brake switch. This could cause a driver to possibly leave the parking brake engaged while trying to drive the car.

The affected cars are from the 2015 and 2016 model years.
