2006-2009 Hyundai Azera recalled

Hyundai is recalling 65,226 Azeras, from 2006 to 2009, due to an issue with the front passenger airbag.

According to the NHTSA, the wiring harness for the seatbelt tension sensor may wear after repeated use of the seatbelt. If it becomes damaged, the airbag won’t deploy in the event of a crash.

Hyundai claims that no injuries have resulted from this as of now. The recall will begin in February. To fix it, the wiring will be rerouted and secured with a new harness, unless the wiring harness has already been damaged, in which case the seatbelt will be replaced.

If you own one of these, have it checked out with your dealer as soon as possible. Until the issue is fixed, don’t have any sitting in the front passenger seat.
