Summary

Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2018 Genesis G80 vehicles. The Occupant Classification System (OCS) may incorrectly detect that an adult is in the passenger seat, even if the seat is unoccupied. In the event of a crash, if a child or infant is in the seat, the front passenger air bag may deploy instead of being deactivated.

Remedy

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the OCS, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 24, 2018. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-371-9460. Hyundaiís number for this recall is 002G.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
