Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe
vehicles manufactured from April 19, 2006, through July 7, 2008. The
occupant classification system (OCS) may need recalibration to
accurately detect small statured adults.
Improper classification or detection may cause the front passenger
airbag not to deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of
injury to the front passenger.
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will update the classification
software free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided the
agency with a notification schedule. Owners may contact Hyundai at
