DETROIT, Dec 17, 2994; Reuters reported that Hyundai is recalling about 120,000 Elantra sedans sold in the United States because of a possible problem with deployment of their airbags.

The U.S. arm of the Korean automaker announced the recall late on Thursday, saying it affected vehicles from the 2004 and 2005 model years.

A software change will fix the potential problem with the airbags that was detected in recent frontal crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Hyundai said.
