Certain models of Hyundai Sonata Hybrids are being recalled over possible seat belt safety issues, according to the Consumer Reports website.
The 2011 and 2012 Hyundi Sonata vehicles manufactured since December of 2010 were equipped with rear center seat belt systems that unfortunately do not comply with the requirements of the federal safety standards, according to the official press release.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed that these vehicles should be recalled immediately due to the possibility parents can install child booster seats that could become detached because of the faulty seat belt system, which could lead to a possibly serious injury in the case of an accident.
As a Seattle injury lawyer I urge you to follow the agency’s instructions. Because the shoulder and lap portions of these vehicles’ rear seat belts could become unlocked unexpectedly, I encourage you to refrain from having any passenger in the back seat of your car until the this problem has been fixed at an authorized dealership near you.
Never delay in responding to a recall alert, it could save your life and the lives of your loved ones.
