Hyundai is recalling about 978,000 vehicles in the us because the front seat belts could detach and fail to protect passengers during a crash.
The issue affecting the cars is a fastener on the seat belt anchor which may not have been fully latched during assembly, leading to the possibility of the belt becoming detached. If that's the case, a collision might cause the linkage to separate from the pretensioner. In all, only 1 percent of the cars are expected to have the defect, according to the March 8 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration safety recall report. Hyundai said it first discovered the problem in September when a customer in a 2013 Sonata reported the front passenger seatbelt detaching during a crash.
