Hyundai Recalling Certain Elantra Vehicles

April 07, 2013

Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling 186,254 2011-2013 model-year Elantra vehicles because of a potential airbag problem, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers Elantra vehicles manufactured from Nov. 12, 2010, through March 05, 2013.

A support bracket attached to the headliner may become displaced during a side curtain airbag deployment. If the headliner support bracket strikes an occupant during a crash, he or she may suffer a laceration injury, NHTSA said.

Hyundai dealers will apply adhesive strips to the headliner, free of charge. A remedy is expected to be available in May. Owners can reach Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
