2007-2009 Hyundai Santa Fe Recalled for Faulty Airbag Sensor

Sensors May Not Detect Front Passenger

Jul 30, 2012
Hyundai is recalling 228,797 Santa Fe SUVs built from April 2006 through July 2008 for faulty sensors that may not properly detect the presence of a front passenger, causing the front passenger airbag not to deploy as it should in the event of a frontal collision. 29,679 Santa Fes sold in Canada built in model years 2007 and 2008 are also subject to the recall.
The Problem: The occupant classification software (OCS) may not be properly calibrated to detect the presence of smaller-statured adults, causing the airbag not to deploy in a crash.

The Fix: Hyundai will notify customers and dealers and update the OCS software free of charge. Hyundai has not yet issued a recall notification schedule. Owners can contact Hyundai at 800-633-5151 or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at: 888-327-4236.
Number of Vehicles Affected: 199,118 U.S.-market Santa Fe models made from April 19, 2006 to July 7, 2008, 29,679 Canadian-market Santa Fe models from 2007 to 2008 model years.
