Recall roundup: Hyundai ix35 in Australia

The Australian division of Hyundai has recently announced a recall of the ix35 because of a problem with the airbag.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, owners of the Hyundai ix35, living in Australia, will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with an airbag. The ACCC states that the airbag module bolt could be incorrectly tensioned and this can affect the function of the horn and the correct deployment of the airbag. Hyundai is advising owners of the ix35 not to drive the crossover anymore until the issue will be solved.

A total of 32,525 units of the country’s most popular small SUV will be affected by this recall and all models have been produced between January 2011 and December 2013. Hyundai says that it’s not aware of any incidents involving the airbag fault in Australia but owners of the models can notice the noise coming from the steering wheel. The recall is part of a much larger one, affecting 137,000 vehicles globally. The recall will begin shortly and the necessary repairs will be made free of charge. If you own such a model, you should contact your local Hyundai representative for more details on the subject.
