Hyundai Recall

Seatbelts are an important feature of motor vehicles.  Seatbelts help to keep drivers and passengers alike safe in case of a collision or accident. Both passengers and drivers are legally required to wear their seatbelts while traveling in motor vehicles.

It has been discovered that seatbelts in some Hyundai vehicles may not be functioning properly. This discovery has prompted a recall because of the importance of having seatbelts that work properly installed in all cars to help keep people safe in the event of an accident.

The recall affects almost 1 million vehicles. The vehicles involved in the recall are Sonata midsize sedans from the model years from 2011 until 2014 and the Sonata Hybrid with model years 2011 through 2015. The front seatbelts in the affected vehicles have the possibility to detach during an accident and not hold people in the event of an accident.

Hyundai believes that the seatbelt problem occurred during the assembly of the vehicles. The fastener for the seatbelt anchor may not have been installed properly, which can cause the seatbelt to detach during an accident.

The company has received one report of an injury resulting from the malfunctioning seatbelt. The company plans to start notifying owners of the problem in early April. Owners will be able to bring the cars into dealerships to have the seatbelt system inspected and repaired as needed.
