2008-2010 Hyundai Elantra recalled in Canada over airbag concerns

By ,

The 2008-2010 Hyundai Elantra’s frontal airbags and seatbelt pretensioners may inadvertently deploy while the vehicle is stopped or moving at slow speeds, so the company has announced a recall. A total of 32,702 units are affected in Canada. 

The problem comes from an improper calibration of the Airbag Control Unit (ACU). Hyundai dealers will simply reprogram the ACU at no cost to owners.
