In the event of a vehicle crash, the air bag may not deploy properly, possibly resulting in serious injury to the right front passenger.

Air Bags — Frontal

On certain sport utility vehicles, the front passenger air bag is mounted beneath the right portion of the instrument panel's padded surface. Tear lines are formed into the underside of the instrument panel's padded surface during the production process of the instrument panel top pad. These tear lines allow a portion of the instrument panel surface to fold upward if the passenger air bag deploys.
Hyundai will replace the instrument panel. Owner notification began on October 13, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai of America at 1-800-633-5151, or if the vehicle is located in puerto rico, Hyundai of puerto rico at 1-800-981-0188.
