US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 15V218000
Mfg's Report Date: APR 12, 2015
Component: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 2580


Summary:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015 Accent vehicles manufactured September 15, 2014, to February 10, 2015. In very cold temperatures, the occupant detection system (ODS) may not be able to determine if a child restraint seat is in the front passenger seat.

Consequence:
If the ODS fails to detect that the seat is occupied by a child restraint seat, the front air bag will not be deactivated and, in the event of a crash necessitating front air bag deployment, the air bag deployment could cause increased risk of injury to the occupant in the child restraint seat.

Remedy:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will correct ODS software, free of charge. The recall began on June 4, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 129.

Dates of Manufacture:
SEP 14, 2014 to FEB 09, 2015

Manufacturer Recall Number:
129
