Hyundai Motor America is recalling 84,500 model year 2010-2016 Genesis Coupes manufactured December 12, 2008, to June 11, 2016.
The electrical harness connector for the front passenger seat Occupant Classification System (OCS) may dislodge when the seat is moved.
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger front airbag, the disconnected OCS would -- by default -- cause the first stage, and only the first stage, of the air bag to deploy, whether there is a child seat in the front seat and the bag should not deploy or if the crash is severe and both stages should deploy. Either scenario increases the risk of injury to the front seat occupant.
What to do
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will secure the OCS connector to prevent it from disconnecting, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 2, 2016.
Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 151.
