The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported two recalls recently that impact thousands of cars and motorcycles across the country. Needless to say, these campaigns are serious, and consumers must not shy away from fixing their vehicles. Especially because the issues may lead to accidents.
The first campaign was launched by Hyundai. Vehicles listed under this recall include the 2019 Santa Fe SUVs. According to the firm, the vehicles come with side curtain airbag mounting bolts that could interfere with the airbags during deployment. As a result, the airbag may suffer damage. Damaged airbags could expose occupants to serious risks, sa they will not protect them in a crash.
Dealers will install a protective cover over the side curtain airbag installation bolts so this issue won’t expose occupants to risks.
Once Hyundai contacts you directly via mail about the recall, contact an authorized dealer to schedule a visit.
At least 178,000 motorcycles are at risk of exposing riders to crash hazards, the firm stated. The recall campaign involves 26 models of the 2017 and 2018 Harley-Davidson years make.
The firm claims riders could lose control of the motorcycles because the clutch can cause the bike to get stuck in gear. In this case, a crash may take place.

Harley-Davidson will notify consumers with the recalled motorcycles directly. At a dealer, staff will install a new secondary clutch actuator piston assembly to prevent accidents.
Whether you own a Harley-Davidson or a Hyundai, act fast to avoid accidents. Too often, drivers and riders ignore recalls and end up experiencing an accident. Make sure to respond to recall alerts promptly to avoid allowing a safety problem lead to an accident.
