Hyundai recalls Elantras over air bag sensors
WASHINGTON (AP) - March 18, 2011 (WPVI) -- Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling Elantra sedans to fix faulty air bag sensors that could cause the front air bag to malfunction.
Hyundai says it will issue separate recalls to fix the problem. The first covers more than 188,000 Elantras from the 2007 to 2009 model years.
Dealers will fix an electrical connector for a sensor that's designed to deactivate the right front air bag under certain circumstances.
The second recall covers nearly 100,000 Elantras from the 2007-2008 model years, vehicles that are also covered by the first recall.
It will fix a sensor on the seat track of the driver's side that helps determine whether the air bag should deploy.
The recalls are expected to begin in April. Owners can call (800) 633-5151 for more information.
