Hyundai Recalls 2012 and 2013 Azera Models for Faulty Passenger-Side Airbag

By Jacob Brown | July 06, 2013
Hyundai is recalling 5,200 Azera full-size sedans from the 2012 and 2013 model years to fix a front passenger-side airbag that deploy with an improper amount of force based on the occupant's size and weight. As a result, a child could have the airbag sensors in the seat read that he or she is an adult, and the airbag could use too much force in the case of an accident. The converse is possible as well. That could heighten the chance of an injury in an accident. The recalled vehicles were manufactured from May 22, 2012, to November 23, 2012. Hyundai will be recalling the 5,200 affected Azera full-size sedans to adjust the calibration of the airbag sensors. Hyundai has not yet set a schedule for when it plans to issue recall notifications to owners. But should customers have any questions regarding the recall, they can contact Hyundai atĀ (800) 633-5151 in reference to campaign 111. Customers can also contact the National Traffic Safety Administration at (888) 327-4236, referencing campaign numberĀ 13V264000.
