The calls to review procedures in which a manufacturer notifies a defect in one or more of a product that must be revised, replaced or repaired systems or elements are. The cars have a lot of parts and technologies, so it is normal that sometimes a car is called to review. But when it is a campaign related to a security system draws more attention.
In this case, Hyundai calls to review nearly 980,000 units of the Hyundai Sonata sold in United States, in different versions and for the years 2011-2015. Defect comes from seat belt anchoring system which, apparently, could break off and do not perform their function in case of accident. Thus the NHTSA (National Highway Safety Driving Academy), has communicated but also reported that unknown no injured or deceased because of this problem.
As we have learned, safety belts in the Hyundai Sonata, called to review are those of the front seats. As we said, the anchor point of the belt with the pretensor may peel off because of forces generated during an accident. The system occur, would not done its function and, therefore, the safety of the driver and front passenger would be drastically reduced.
The Asian mark shall notify the owners of vehicles affected by mail, it seems, from April 7. Official workshop services be reviewed and etiquette problem if the vehicle is actually affected. As usual, these repairs they will have no cost to the customers, or for parts or labor, taking charge of all expenses the automotive company. This is the largest campaign by Hyundai in the United States.
