RepairPal Expert Overview
In the event of a crash, the driver's front air bag may deploy at a higher pressure than necessary. Deployment at a pressure higher that expected increases the risk of injury to the driver.
We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall. In the event of a crash, the driver's air bag could deploy at an incorrect pressure. 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.
The air bag control module may receive an unstable electrical signal from the driver's fore/aft seat position sensor. This could cause the driver's front air bag to deploy at the incorrect pressure in the event of a crash, increasing risk of injury to the driver. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control module with updated software to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011. The Hyundai recall number is 100.
