The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced today a recall of over 220,000 Hyundai cars, 199,118 (2007-2009 MY Santa Fe crossover) and 22,512 (2012/2013 MY Sonata sedan). What happened? The Airbags that may not deploy in the event of an accident.

In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Hyundai said that the OCS might need a software recalibration “to accurately detect small statured adults”.

The company said it had received complaints from some adults weighing less than 130 pounds (59 kg) whose airbags did not deploy. Hyundai has not yet provided the safety agency with a notification schedule for this recall.
