Hyundai Elantra Recall

Hyundai will recall 190,000 Elantra sedans because of an air bag defect. The recall is for Elantra model years 2007, 2008 and 2009. The center console has a sensor that detects the weight of the passenger. Pretty high tech. The purpose is to disable the right airbag if the passenger is not the appropriate weight. Of course, high tech needs to actually work. With these Hyundai Elantras, if the sensor is even slightly compromised during ordinary use, the airbag may deploy without considering the weight of the passenger. Hopefully, not a huge deal and one that Hyundai can fix with this recall.
