For those who own or lease a 2019-2020 Hyundai Sonata, it’s important to note that several consumer complaints regarding braking system issues have been reported in recent months. Drivers express concern over malfunctioning emergency brakes and brakes that fail to engage when put into park mode. The manufacturer has issued a couple of safety recalls, but it has yet to address braking concerns specifically.
One owner of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata stated that their vehicle was in park mode—the dash indicator confirmed that this was the case—when the car began to roll backward. According to the driver, this issue has happened on multiple occasions without any explanation. Another driver shared their struggle with a recurring emergency braking malfunction. Somehow, the vehicle applies the emergency brake on its own and without cause or warning. Other drivers have reported similar braking system failures, many of which have continued to happen.
