The NHTSA has issued a recall on the Hyundai Azera, 65,226 vehicles from 2006 through 2009 are affected due to a seat belt issue. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued a recall of the same vehicle due to a faulty tail lamp.
The reason for the recall is due to the wiring harness directly in front of the seat belt tension sensor; this could become damaged over time. If the wiring disconnects, then the airbag will not work if you are involved in an accident. This could cause serious injury to the person sitting in that seat.
Hyundai are to contact Azera owners, where they will then be asked to bring their car in for inspection, they will then carry out a free repair if needed. The recall will begin next month.
