PhotoHyundai Motor America is recalling 1,201 model year 2018 Santa Fe Sport vehicles.

The side curtain airbags on these vehicles have a component that may detach during deployment of the inflatable curtain air bag.

If the component detaches during deployment, the curtain air bag may not inflate properly during a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, if the detached component were to enter the vehicle occupant compartment, there could be an increased risk of occupant injury.

What to do

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver and passenger side curtain air bags, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin February 9, 2018.

Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 171.
