Hyundai is recalling around 200 first-generation i30s due to an issue with their airbag inflator.
“The driver’s airbag inflator may rupture in the event of airbag deployment,” the company says in its recall notice.
“In the event of an airbag inflator rupture, compressed gas and metal fragments may be propelled through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or death.”
This isn’t related to the Takata airbag recall campaign that has affected myriad brands, as Hyundai hasn’t used Takata as a supplier.
- A total of 213 vehicles are affected from 2010 to 2011
- The VIN list is attached here
- The original recall notice is attached here
If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll need to contact your preferred Hyundai dealer to have the airbag module replaced, free of charge.
If you have any further questions, you can contact Hyundai Customer Care on 1800 186 306.
