Hyundai is recalling more than 200,000 Veracruz and Santa Fe SUVs between 2007-2008 model years for an airbag failure. The recall affects 26,548 Veracruz vehicles and 178,865 Santa Fe models.

According to Hyundai the airbag assembly could become damaged over time and as a result the airbag may not deploy in a crash. Hyundai has already replaced 8,000 of the assemblies under warranty claims.

No injuries or accidents have been reported in association with this recall, and did state that a warning light would illuminate on the dash board if the airbag system is not working. Hyundai is taking a different route with the recall however, fixing first the vehicles with the warning light illuminated while asking owners with functional airbags to wait. Hyundai states the reason being is that there isn’t a sufficient supply of replacement parts to service all affected vehicles in a short period of time.
