11/29/16 Hyundai motor america (hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2010-2016 genesis coupe vehicles 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 frontal air bag, 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.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will secure the ocs connector to prevent it from disconnecting, free of charge. parts are not currently available and a second letter will be sent to owners when parts are available. owners may contact hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. hyundai's number for this recall is 151.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
