Recall roundup: Hyundai ix35 in Australia

Hyundai has recently announced a recall for the ix35 SUVs in Australia, because of a problem with the seatbelt pretensioners.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, a total of 6,552 units of the Hyundai ix35 model will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealerships in order to fix the problem with the seatbelt pretensioners. The ACCC is saying that because of a fault with the previously mentioned seatbelt pretensioners, the occupants of the vehicles could not be correctly restrained in a collision.

The South Korean based automaker is now aware of any reports of incidents locally and it seems that this fault isn’t affecting the normal operation of the seatbelts. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by Hyundai by mail and inspections and necessary replacements (if required) of the seatbelt pretensioners will not take more than 30 minutes to complete and it will be free of charge. The affected Hyundai ix35 SUVs have been produced between August 2011 and February 2012. Additional details on the recall are limited for the moment and our advice is that if you own such a vehicle, you should contact Hyundai.
