Hyundai is recalling approximately 977,778 model year 2011-2014 Sonata and 2011-2015 Sonata Hybrid vehicles.

In the affected vehicles, the seat belt linkages for both front seat belts may detach from the seat belt anchor pretensioners.

In the event of a crash, the seat belts can possibly detach from the anchor pretensioners, thereby increasing the risk of injury.

This recall is expected to begin on April 7, 2017. Hyundai will notify owners of the recalled Sonata vehicles and dealers will inspect the connection between the seat belt linkages and the seat belt anchor pretensioners, repairing them as necessary, free of charge.

Owner's with any additional questions or concerns related to this recall can contact Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai's reference number for this recall is 160.
