According to a report posted on jalopnik.com, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed a Recall Query concerning exploding seat belt parts in Kia and Hyundai motor vehicles. Last May, approximately 230,000 Hyundai Elantra sedans were recalled by the automaker due to exploding seat belt pretensioners causing injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently provided an update stating that around 275,000 automobiles are affected.
The recalled vehicles include:
• 2021-2022 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid and Elantra vehicles
• 2021 Hyundai Venue SUVs,
• 2021 Genesis GV80 vehicles,
• 2022 Genesis GV70 automobile,
• 2020-2021 Hyundai Accent sedans, and
• 2022 Kia Sorento Hybrid Plug-ins and Hybrids.
NHTSA issued a media statement saying that the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has opened this Recall Query (RQ) due to allegations that the vehicles’ seatbelt pretensioners can explode causing injuries. The Office of Defects Investigation discovered that Samsong is the distributor of the defective pretensioners, and when a pretensioner defectively ruptures, shrapnel can be thrown at passengers causing cuts, abrasions, and other injuries.
