Hyundai Tucson Recalled to Secure Air Bag Assembly

Over 140,000 Hyundai Tucsons are being recalled in order to secure their air bag assemblies.

According to the recall notice, 137,500 of the affected Tucsons are in the U.S. while 3,500 are in Puerto Rico. The air bag assembly may come loose from its mounting on the steering wheel in affected vehicles. Hyundai says that during assembly, it was possible the two bolts attaching the driver’s air bag module to the steering wheel may not have been properly tightened.

In the cases where the bolts aren’t tightened, the air bag module might detach from the steering wheel. No accidents or injuries related to the recall have been reported and Hyundai will begin notifying customers at the end of June. Dealers will inspect and tighten the bolts free of charge.
