Hyundai Recalls 84k Genesis Coupes Over Airbag Glitch

A problem with the front passenger airbags on the Genesis Coupe has prompted Hyundai to issue a recall.

The issue, according to the recall notice, comes down to the Occupant Classification System that determines whether the airbag should be deployed. Apparently the system “may dislodge when the seat is removed.”

As a result, and in the event of a crash, the airbag might only deploy in the first stage when the second stage is warranted, and it might deploy even when there’s a child seat in place that should disengage the airbag.

The problem was found to potentially affect an estimated 84,500 examples of the Genesis Coupe from the 2010-16 model years – spanning the model’s 2013 facelift – and manufactured between December 12, 2008, and June 11, 2016. The owners of those vehicles should expect to hear from the manufacturer starting December 2 to arrange service, which will entail securing the relevant connector to keep it from dislodging.
