Hyundai is recalling 5,200 units of its Azera sedan over a possible airbag sensor malfunction. The occupant detection system in models built between May 22, 2012 and November 23, 2012 might not be able to tell what kind of passenger (adult, child, or child seat) is in the front seat, which could cause improper deployment of the airbag.
Azeras from the 2012 and 2013 model year are affected. Hyundai hasn’t yet said when owners will be notified, but once that happens, they’ll be able to take their sedans to dealers to have the system recalibrated free of charge. There’s a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below with more information.
