Hyundai Motor Co is recalling over a quarter million vehicles due to possible corrosion that can affect rear wheel alignment.

The Sonata and Azera sedans that are sold in areas where road salt used in cold-weather states can lead to rust on the steel on the underside of the vehicles, which can lead to misaligned real wheels, according to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The first recall involves model year 2006 to 2010 Sonata sedans made from March 1, 2005 to January 21, 2010, and model year 2006 to 2011 Azera sedans made from September 27, 2005 to November 22, 2010.

The second recall includes 20,300 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport SUVs with front-wheel drive and 2.4-liter engines.

The states include Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

In addition to Hyundai’s recalls, its subsidiary, Kia, also announced that it will issue a recall of about 9,300 2014 Kia Sorento models, also with front-wheel-drive with 4-cylinder engines.

No injuries or accidents have been reported due to the issue according to Hyundai Motor Company and is merely a safety precaution.
