Vehicles Affected: Approximately 85,000 model-year 2010-16 Hyundai Genesis Coupes manufactured between Dec. 12, 2008, and June 11, 2016
The Problem: The electrical harness connector for the front passenger-seat occupant classification system may dislodge when the seat is moved. In a crash necessitating the deployment of the passenger frontal airbag, this would by default trigger only the first stage of airbag deployment whether a child is in the front seat (in which case the airbag should not deploy) or the crash is severe and both stages should deploy. Either scenario increases the risk of an injury to the front-seat occupant.
The Fix: Dealers will secure the occupant classification system connector to prevent it from disconnecting for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners Dec. 2. Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
