Hyundai Recalls 1M Sonatas Over Seat Belt Concerns

An issue with the seat belts of 978,000 cars poses a safety hazard to Hyundai auto owners. This flaw in the design could cause the seat belts to detach. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the seatbelts in those vehicles might detach during collisions.

Hyundai says in government documents that a fastener for a seat belt anchor may not have been fully latched during assembly. One of those incidents resulted in an unspecified minor injury. As a result, the company chose to conduct the recall, but continues to work with the supplies to investigate the issues.

At least one injury has been reported.

A Hyundai recall has been issued due to an issue with the design of several of the company's vehicles.

Hyundai issued a recall for 977,778 examples of its Sonata sedan.

Hyundai says it will notify owners of affected vehicles in April and dealers will inspect the connection between the seatbelt linkage and anchor, making repairs as necessary. You can also call NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline 1-888-327-4236 and ask about safety campaign #17V152000.
