Steering Wheel Locks

Hyundai has been sued by owners tired of waiting around while their cars suddenly lose power steering.

The Power Steering Lawsuit

In the case, Houston Vinci and Jaehan Ku, et al., v. Hyundai Motor America, et al., the plaintiffs say over 100 complaints have been logged with safety regulators over this no-warning drop of power steering. The case points out that Hyundai issued a similar recall in 2016 for 173,000 Sonatas with power steering issues.

The proposed class-action covers the 2013-2016 Hyundai Accent and 2013-2016 Hyundai Elantra.
