Hyundai's new 2015 Sonata has barely been on sale, but the automaker is already recalling 5,700 of them for a potentially dangerous brake issue.

It's so dangerous that Hyundai has been contacting owners of the affected vehicles and telling them not to drive them. But only those made from April 25 to June 16 are covered under the recall.

The South Korean maker says either or both of the front brake calipers can fracture due to a manufacturing error. While it sounds like the brakes won't fail outright, it will be harder to stop the car. And cars that take too long to stop can crash.

The fix will involve replacing the faulty brake calipers.

Hyundai also recalled the Sonata last month for a faulty wiring harness that could diminish the power steering.
