Hyundai Azera Recalled For Seatbelt/Airbag Malfunction

January 8, 2010

Over 65,000 Hyundai Azeras from model years 2006 - 2009 are being recalled due to a malfunction in the driver's-side seatbelt, which can affect deployment of the driver's airbag. In a nutshell: the wiring harness on the seatbelt's tension sensor may get damaged over time, and if the tension sensor doesn't work, the airbag won't fire in case of an accident. That's bad.

The recall affects Azeras manufactured between September 27, 2005 and October 1, 2008. If you own one of the 65,226 affected units, Hyundai should be in touch with you shortly, but if you're the proactive sort, you can call Hyundai Customer Assistance at 1-800-633-5151. You can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236, or visit www.SafeCar.gov, using the recall campaign number 094.
