Problem Summary: HYUNDAI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012-2013 HYUNDAI SONATA PASSENGER CARS, MANUFACTURED FROM JANUARY 24, 2012, THROUGH JUNE 21, 2012. THE CURTAIN SIDE AIRBAGS ON THESE VEHICLES MAY INFLATE WITHOUT DEPLOYMENT COMMAND DUE TO AN ERROR DURING MANUFACTURING.
Consequence: THE CURTAIN AIRBAG MAY INFLATE WITHOUT DEPLOYMENT COMMAND AND INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE. ADDITIONALLY, AN UNEXPECTED DEPLOYMENT WOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT DRIVER DISTRACTION AND WOULD LIMIT THE DRIVER'S VISIBILITY, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
What Owners Should Do: HYUNDAI DEALERS WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CURTAIN SIDE AIRBAGS FREE OF CHARGE. THIS RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI AT 1-800-633-5151.
