Two major automakers have launched recalls impacting popular vehicles. While not all recalls are associated with serious issues that could result in crashes and injuries, these two campaigns could expose consumers to serious risks. That’s why we decided to report on these two campaigns.
The first recall campaign our readers and clients should not ignore comes from Nissan North America.
According to the report released by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2017 Versa vehicles manufactured between August 1st and 16th of 2016 have been fitted with air bags that may have been produced with fabric that may tear due to a faulty section.
The side air bags in these vehicles may not perform well in the event of a collision and the occupants may be exposed to injury risks.
While the company has yet to schedule a notification date, car owners with the recalled vehicles are being urged to contact Nissan for more details if they are concerned about their safety and the safety of their passengers.
The second recall campaign drivers should not ignore comes from Hyundai Motor America.
The vehicles impacted by the recall campaign include the 2015 and 2016 Sonata and Sonata Hybrid units.
The recalled Hybrid vehicles were manufactured between December 8, 2014 and August 18, 2015 and the remaining units were manufactured between May 28, 2014 and March 18, 2016. Since these vehicles may come with panoramic sunroofs that may have a bonding issue, the sunroof panel may end up getting detached while the vehicle is in motion. This problem could become a road hazard, exposing riders to serious and potentially deadly risks.

Consumers with the recalled Hyundai vehicles will be contacted after December 2nd. But if you would like to learn more, reach out to the company as soon as possible to have the issue addressed.
The vehicles should have the wind deflector anchor plates replaced entirely for free.
