Hyundai will recall roughly 3,300 Genesis G80 sedans from the 2018 model-year due to a problem with the occupant classification system deactivating in the vehicle’s front passenger seats.
Specifically, the system may incorrectly detect an adult is sitting in the passenger seat even when it’s unoccupied or a child is sitting in the seat. This could be a problem if there is a collision because the front-passenger airbag could deploy and cause injuries.
Owners of these vehicles should bring them to the dealership for a free repair. The dealers will reprogram the system to ensure the safety of passengers.
Hyundai, which is the parent company of Genesis, will notify owners beginning on August 24th.
Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline.
