Sonata and Sonata Hybrid Owners Face a Second Recall for the Same Seat Belt Problems

Back in March, Hyundai recalled 978,000 cars to inspect and fix seat belt linkages and the pretensioner. Now those vehicles have been recalled again for the same problems.

Although the condition of a partially latched anchor pretensioner was fixed through the recall campaign, the condition could potentially happen again if the anchor pretensioner was intentionally disconnected and then improperly reconnected by consumers or repair facilities.

After the first recall Hyundai and their supplier talked with NHTSA about possible problems from the recall repairs.
