Hyundai Recalls 972 Elantra

Recall From: Hyundai Motor America

Models: Hyundai Elantra Year: 2001

Number Involved: 972

Dates of Manufacture: August - September 2000

Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, the supplemental restraint system side air bag satellite sensors were improperly manufactured, causing the air bag warning light to illuminate and the side air bags to not deploy as intended in the event of a crash. Non-deployment of the side air bags could increase the risk of injury during a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the vehicle's two satellite sensors. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 30, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
