Hyundai Motor America is recalling 977,778 2011- to 2014-model year Sonata and 2011- to 2015-MY Sonata Hybrid vehicles to address a seat belt problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In these cars, the seat belt linkages for both front seat belts may detach from the seat belt anchor pretensioners.

“In the event of a crash, if the seat belts detach from the anchor pretensioners, it can increase the risk of injury,” NHTSA warned on its website.

Hyundai dealers will inspect the connection between the seat belt linkages and the seat belt anchor pretensioners, repairing them as needed. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin April 7. Vehicle owners can reach Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai’s number for the recall is 160.
