Hyundai to recall 281,000 vehicles over bursting part

by SpeedLux

Hyundai Motor America is set to recall 281,000 vehicles in North America due to seat-belt pretensioners that could burst and project metal fragments, resulting in injuries.

The recall comes after three injury reports.

It covers some 2019-2022 Accent, 2021-2023 Elantra, and 2021-2022 Elantra hybrid vehicles.

In the event of a crash, front driver or passenger-side seatbelt pretensioners could burst upon deployment. Dealers will safeguard seat-belt pretensioners with a cap.

Seat-belt pretensioners are part of the system that locks the seatbelt during the accident to provide more protection to occupants.

This recall expands and replaces four previous recalls. All Accent, Elantra, and Elantra HEV vehicles already fixed under the previous recalls will need to have the new recall fix finished, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said.

The new recall concerns 239,000 vehicles in the United States and about 42,000 in Canada, according to Hyundai.

Two injuries were reported in the United States, while one was reported in Singapore.
