Just the Facts:
  • Hyundai is recalling 5,200 2012-'13 Hyundai Azera sedans in the U.S. because of an airbag problem.
  • The airbags in the affected Azeras could deploy incorrectly during a crash, says NHTSA.
  • Hyundai has not set a date for the recall.

WASHINGTON — Hyundai is recalling 5,200 2012-'13 Hyundai Azera sedans in the U.S. because of an airbag problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The occupant detection system may fail to properly differentiate whether the front passenger seat occupant is an adult, a child or a child restraint seat," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the occupant is incorrectly classified, in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, the airbag may deploy with greater or lesser force than appropriate, resulting in an increased risk of injury."

The affected Azeras were built from May 22 to November 23, 2012.

Hyundai dealers will recalibrate the airbag system. The automaker has not set a date for the recall. Owners can contact Hyundai at (734) 337-9499.

Edmunds says: Azera owners will have to wait for formal notification from Hyundai on this recall. But if you have any concerns, contact Hyundai's customer-service department.
