RepairPal Expert Overview on April 20, 2011

The red reflectors installed in the rear bumper do not meet Federal safety standards. This could lead to reduced visibility of the rear of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high for owners who park their vehicles on a dark or dimly lit street. Please contact your Hyundai dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.

RepairPal Expert Overview on March 5, 2010

The air bag safety restraint system in the vehicle has a feature that deactivates the passenger side front air bag if it detects a child in the right front seat. This same feature has a programmed flaw, which erroneously illuminates the air bag warning light if a passenger over 240 pounds sits in the right front seat. When the air bag warning light is on, the air bag system is non-functional, which could result in more significant injuries in a crash.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if the air bag light comes on. Please contact your Hyundai dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
