According to CNN, Hyundai is going to recall over 200 thousand SUVs and Sonata sedans due to potential problems with the air bags.
The SUVs were manufactured in Santa Fe between 2007 and 2009. There may be a problem accurately gauging the size of the passenger in order to determine whether the front airbags should be deployed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the classification system may be changed to include smaller sized adults.
Sedans made from 2012 to 2013 are being recalled due to an error that causes the curtain airbags to inflate when not necessary.
According to USA Today, Hyundai received complaints stating that the airbags of adults under 130 pounds did not deploy. No injuries have been reported, and the censors will be re-programmed free of charge.
