2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata, 2011-2015 Sonata Hybrid: Recall Alert

Posted March 17, 2017

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the seatbelts in those vehicles might detach during collisions.

Almost 1 million vehicles made by South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co. will be recalled in the United States due to a defect found in the seatbelts, industry sources and the company said Thursday. The anchor pretensioners for the front seats, which are mounted at the floor of each B-pillar, may not have been fully connected with the seatbelt linkage during assembly at the company's Montgomery, Alabama, plant.

The recall affects 2011 - 2014 Hyundai Sonata sedans and 2011 - 2015 Sonata hybrids with improperly installed seat belts.
