Hyundai is recalling it's popular Sonata mid-size sedan to fix problems with gear shift levers.

The recall covers 883,000 cars from 2011 to 2014.

The Korean automaker says the automatic shift cable can separate from the shift lever. If that happens, the lever may not show the correct gear, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company says in documents posted Wednesday by U.S. safety regulators that it has received 1,171 warranty claims about the problem, plus seven other reports with related symptoms. The documents don't say if there have been any crashes or injuries.

Hyundai will notify owners via mail between now and the end of September. Dealers will inspect the shift cables and repair the connection if needed.
