Hyundai Canada has to recall about 40,000 of Tucson crossovers 2011 – 2014 years. The problem appears to be connected with the driver’s front airbag.
In some cases, the securing bolts attaching the airbag to the steering wheel are not sufficiently tightened. This could possibly let the airbag to become loose or even detach from the steering wheel unit, causing failure with its deployment and ensue increasing the risk of a personal injury in a motor vehicle accident.
Solution: dealers to verify and fix bolt torque.
