Hyundai has launched a safety recall in the United States regarding the airbag control unit electronic in certain:

  • Model Year 2011-2013 Hyundai Sonata Vehicles.
  • Model Year 2011-2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vehicles

What is the safety recall?
The affected vehicles are equipped with an airbag control unit which detects collisions and commands deployment of the airbags and seat belt pretensioners as necessary. In some instances, electrical overstress damage has been observed in the module circuitry, which may prevent the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags from deploying. 

What will Hyundai do?
If affected, your Hyundai dealer will install an external wire filter kit that will prevent electrical overstress in the airbag control unit. This will be performed for FREE. Additional information can be found in the FAQ section.
