Baisha Kreuzer4 years ago

Hyundai is recalling 2012-2013 Sonata models and 2007-2009 Santa Fe models due to manufacturing issues which could pose a danger to drivers and passengers.

Hyundai Santa Fe Recall

  • According to the official recall notice, the Hyundai Santa Fe models may have faulty occupant classification systems (OCS) which may need recalibration to accurately detect small statured adults.
  • If the OCS does not detect a passenger, the air bag would not deploy in the event of a crash. This poses a possible fatal threat to passengers.
  • The affected models were sold from April 19, 2006 through July 7, 2008.

Hyundai Sonata Recall

  • According to the official recall notice, the curtain side airbags on certain Hyundai Sonata vehicles may spontaneously inflate.
  • If the airbags were to randomly inflate, they could pose an injury risk to the driver and any passengers inside.
  • The only models affected with this problem were sold from January 24, 2012 to June 21, 2012.
