Hyundai is recalling 154,753 of its 2011 Sonata sedans because their front and side airbags and seat belts might not work in a crash.
The airbag issue involves a potential short circuit that could prevent the airbags from inflating. The seat belts have a potential problem with their pretensioners, which make passengers more secure by removing excess slack in the belt in a crash.
Hyundai is aware of three vehicles involved in crashes where the airbags were supposed to deploy but did not.
2019 Hyundai Veloster N: This Is Hyundai's Hottest Ever Hatch
<p>Here's our first official look at the 2019 Veloster N in all of its hot-hatchback glory.</p>As anticipated, the Veloster N shares much of its aesthetic with the Europe-market i30 N, a hotted-up version of the Elantra GT that we won't get in the States. The Veloster N's attractive Performance Blue paint is the same, as are the bits of red trim on the front fascia and side skirts. An N badge is visible in the grille, denoting this as part of Hyundai's new performance sub-brand; it'll sit above the Veloster Turbo in the lineup.
Vehicles recalled: Certain 2011 Hyundai Sonatas produced between Dec. 11, 2009, and Sept. 29, 2010.
The problem: A short circuit in the airbag control unit may cause front and side airbags and seatbelt pretensioners to not deploy in a crash.
The fix: Hyundai is still working on a fix for the issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
How to contact the manufacturer: The recall is expected to begin April 20, 2018. Owners can contact Hyundai customer service at 855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for the recall is 174.
NHTSA campaign number: 18V137000.

2018 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T First Test Review: Quicker and More Agile
A fresh look at Hyundai's middling midsizerDespite many changes, Hyundai kept the same engines. Most buyers will find the standard 2.4-liter engine sufficient with 185 hp, as we've noted before. The 2.0-liter turbo-four engine still makes 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, but it receives a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The turbocharged Sonata drives like a V-6 without feeling bulky.
