DETROIT (AP) - Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling some Santa Fe SUVs and Sonata sedans because of problems with their air bags.
The Santa Fe recall
involves nearly 200,000 vehicles in the 2007 to 2009 model years.
Hyundai dealers will reprogram the front passenger air bag sensors so
they will accurately detect when a small adult is seated.
Hyundai said it received
complaints from some adults under 130 pounds whose air bags didn't
deploy. No injuries have been reported. The air bags were originally
programmed not to go off to protect children.
The company is also
recalling 22,500 Sonata sedans from the 2012 and 2013 model years
because their side air bags could go off without warning.
Hyundai said it has received 16 complaints about the Sonata's air bags, but no injuries have been reported.
