Park feature – technically called Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) is set to the Sonata sedan 2020, and the “h” crossover Nexo 2020 model year. At the time of this writing it is unknown the exact relationship of the models to each other, but according to rumors, the vast majority of “problem” cars belong to the model Sonata.
What is the specific problem? According to the National administration of safety of traffic of the USA, “software RSPA may not prevent movement of the vehicle when a fault is detected in the system RSPA”. In the event of any system failure, the vehicle may continue to move without control, instead of the default to stop. The automaker is unaware of any injuries or accidents caused by this issue.
