Hyundai recalls 239,000 vehicles in the U.S. over seat belt problems
Hyundai is recalling 239,000 vehicles in the U.S. over problems with seat belt parts.
According to the Associated Press, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has decided to recall some Hyundai cars when the seatbelt pretensioners are activated, causing parts to suddenly break, creating a risk of injuring occupants by debris.
The seat belt pretensioner is a component that prevents injuries by pulling the seat belt toward the occupant when an impact is detected in the vehicle.
The recalled vehicles include the 2019-2022 model year Accent and the 2021-2023 model year Elantra.
