Hyundai recalls 17,000 Santa Fe Sport SUVs with seat belts that can detach in a crash.

— Hyundai is recalling more than 17,000 model year 2017 Santa Fe Sport SUVs days after the automaker recalled the same vehicles, although for different problems.

The previous recall involves more than 437,000 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport SUVs to fix hoods that can open while driving.

The latest recall includes 2017 Santa Fe Sport SUVs to fix issues with the driver's side seat belt anchors that may not have been tightened properly during assembly. Bolts that aren't tight enough may cause the seat belts to detach from the anchors during a crash.

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport recall will begin June 30, 2017. Hyundai dealers will check the seat belt anchor bolts and make sure they are tight enough.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration didn't provide more details about the recall, but concerned owners should call Hyundai at 800-633-5151 and ask about recall number 165.
