A little clarification on this recall if I may. I have changed dozens upon dozens of these break lamp switches. The manufacturer decided to launch this campaign in response to the number of faulty switches being replaced. They are replacing the faulty switches with new ones that are of better quality. Some models were sold with a plastic clip to attach it, these are being replaced with metal nut and bolt attachment. Others that already had the nut and bolt attachment were being found to go out prematurely. When this switch goes out for the most part it is just an inconvenience, cant shift into or outta park, other instances are more dangerous such as if your driving with your cruise on. The brake lamp switch is what turns the cruise off when you hit the brakes. If the switch isnt working you can come to a complete stop but as soon as you let of the brake the car will immediately try to go back to what ever speed the cruise is still set at.

The adhesive strip is actually being placed not on the headliner itself but just under it. It is covering a metal strip that is part of the SRS curtain airbag.

I am a tech in a dealership and have performed these recalls several times. We as techs are not told the reason for the recall or what prompted them in any way. The brake lamp switch we kinda figured that was coming from the number of switches we were replacing on the customers dollar in some cases, most cases was covered under warranty. The adhesive strip was a surprise. My SPECULATION is that they encountered a case where the curtain airbag deployed and the metal strip caused an injury OR the metal strip caused damage to the airbag causing it to not deploy at all. Just my thoughts. But that is what it looks like.

Question, I just purchased a 2011 Sonata, and wondering. If I call Hyundai will they tell me if there are any recalls; and which of those recalls have been done on my car? What number should I call?
