Question about 2009 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

While entering on the NJ Turnpike today, my

I own a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. While entering on the NJ Turnpike today, my steering wheel started to feel tight so I pulled into a rest area. By the time I pulled into the rest area, my steering wheel locked up completely whereas I was unable to even turn it to pull into a parking space. Very scary! The station attendant said I lost all my steering fluid. My question is "shouldn't a warning light have come on?" No warning light whatsoever! I would think that even the check engine light should have gone on even if there is not a specific light for the steering wheel fluid. Thank God I wasn't driving in the left lane or passing anyone.

Report this issue to your dealership where the warranty is at.. Hyundai is very good to their customers... We have been driving them for 10 years now and have been very satisfied.

    Today, September 23, 2010, my 2009 Sonata's steering wheel locked in the middle of traffic, which did almost cause an accident. I had to put it in park, turn it off and restart before it moved.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata...my steering wheel will not lock after turning off the ignition...however..the ignition is not stuck and I am able to insert my key and start the ignition


I have noticed this problem on various different vehicles...after you turn the car off and pull the key out, physically force the wheel to the right or left really hard...the wheel will lock. It just happens to not be in the correct position for the locking mechanism to engage where you last left the steering wheel...to experiment with this, try turning it back on, and turning the wheel just slightly to one side or the next and repeat until you find the "spot" that it engages easily...hope that helped

Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right


This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.

2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied


This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

2000 Hyundai Sonata front end wobbles.


put the front tires on the back and see if it changes.
alot of times,if the suspension is defective it wears the tires uneven ,out of round.
check and make sure the wheel nuts are tight and torqued properly.
alot of techs use just the gun,and not a torque stick and overtighten the wheel nuts.
