The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced the recall of 5,200 Hyundai Azera sedans regarding issues with the occupant detection system. 

In the front seat of the vehicle, the occupant detection system may incorrectly classify the passenger, meaning that in a crash the airbag may deploy with greater or lesser force than appropriate. Only model year 2012 and 2013 Azeras are affected by the issue.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will recalibrate the car’s airbag system free of charge. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-734-337-9499.
