Hyundai is issuing a recall on approximately 85,000 model-year 2010 through 2016 Genesis Coupes due to an airbag wiring problem.
About the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Recall
According to Cars.com, the recall is in response to an electrical harness connector in the front passenger seat. Moving the seat could dislodge the harness, affecting the occupant classification system.
In the event of a crash, the default trigger would only deploy the first stage of airbag deployment whether a child is in the front seat or if the crash is severe and would deem both stages to deploy. Either case is dangerous and increases the risk of injury for occupants in the front seat of the recalled vehicles.
Hyundai is expected to begin notifying owners of the recalled vehicles on December 2. Dealers will secure the electrical harness to prevent it from dislodging, free of charge.
