Hyundai Recalls SUVs Due to Air Bags

Nov. 26, 2019—The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is in its first recall, according to a report by CNET.

The automaker will recall 11,217 Palisade SUVs for air bags that could become damaged when deployed. Mounting bolts used for side-curtain air bag installation may damage the air bags and keep them from inflating in the event of a crash.

The issue is a hexagonal screw with sharp edges. To make sure the screw doesn't make a bad situation worse in the event of a crash, Hyundai technicians will install a cover over the screw. The little component will smooth out any sharp edges present and keep the air bag safe when it's tasked to keep passengers safer.
