Hyundai Santa-Fe Airbag RecallUSA- According to Caradvice.com.au writes that a recall was issued of Hyundai Santa Fe vehicles after a flaw was found with the vehicle’s rear curtain airbag.

The issue seems to be the result of a mounting bolt that sticks out and can damage the airbag fabric. When this occurs, the airbag may not deploy or inflate properly in a crash. The recall impacts 666 cars in Australia. A free repair is available to anyone impacted by the recall.

Hyundai has been trying to make it clear to consumers that the airbag recall is not related to the huge recall of Takata airbags that has impacted most automobile manufacturers. Hyundai wants to emphasize that the defective airbags do not present any risk of shrapnel shooting out if the airbags deploy.

The Takata airbag recall impacted millions of vehicles and was considered the largest and most complicated recall in American history. The Takata airbags used a chemical to deploy. It was later discovered that the chemical could break down and become unstable. When this occurred, it was possible for the airbags to explode and for people in the vehicle to be injured or killed by shrapnel. The chemical had a greater chance of breaking down when the vehicle was in an area with warm and humid weather.

The defective Takata airbags injured 300 and killed 23 people in the United States and around the world.

Most recalls are not a response to something as dangerous as exploding shrapnel. Vehicle recalls are common and often are easily repaired. When car companies issue recalls, the company will fix the issue at no cost to the vehicle’s owners.
