Additional information:

Among the 52 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Hyundai Motor America (“Hyundai”) has recalled an estimated 3,305 model year 2018 Genesis G80 vehicles. The Occupant Classification System (“OCS”) may incorrectly detect that an adult is in the passenger seat, even if the seat is unoccupied. In the event of a crash, if a child or infant is in the seat, the front passenger air bag may deploy instead of being deactivated.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, if the front passenger air bag deploys instead of being deactivated when a child or infant are in the front passenger seat, it can increase the risk of injury.

Hyundai will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the OCS, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 24, 2018. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 002G.
