Hyundai Recalls 155,000 2011 Sonatas

March 12, 2018 0 Comments

Another day, another safety recall. Hyundai has announced that one of its more popular models runs the risk of the airbag system not deploying during an accident.

According to a USAToday report, Hyundai is recalling just under 155,000 model-year 2011 Sonatas, over concerns related to the airbag system. The specific concern is that, due to a “short circuit” issue, in the event of a crash, the airbag systems won’t properly inflate and the seat belts won’t property tighten. The same report indicated at least four incidents involving air bag systems not inflating as needed during an accident.

The recall is not slated to go into effect until April 20, 2018.
