Vehicles Affected: Approximately 444,000 model-year 2011-14 Hyundai Sonata and model-year 2011-15 Sonata Hybrid sedans repaired under a previous recall in March
The Problem: The seat belt linkages for both front seat belts may detach from the seat belt anchor pretensioners, failing to properly restrain the occupant in a crash and increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will again verify the connection between the seat belt linkage and the pretensioner, as well as install a warning label to prevent future seat belt linkage detachment, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners this month. Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
