Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling more than 90,000 Sonata sedans to replace door handles that have caused cuts on the fingers of some motorists.
The South Korean automaker says the recall affects 2002 and 2003 model year Sonatas. The company says chrome plating on the interior handles could wear down, leading to cracking and sharp edges.
A Hyundai spokesman says a few customers have cut their fingers on the peeling chrome plating. Sonata owners can take their car to a Hyundai dealership to have the handles repaired free of charge beginning in June.
Owners can call Hyundai at (800) 633-5151.
