The Hazard!

This recall relates to a potential concern with the Airbag Control Unit (ACU). The Kona Electric is equipped with an Airbag Control Unit (ACU) which detects a crash signal and commands the deployment of the airbags. The ACU is programmed to determine the severity of an impact & within a certain threshold will command the airbags to deploy. Hyundai Motor Company has identified a programming error with the ACU software & has voluntarily released this recall to enable a software upgrade to the ACU to rectify this programming error. To remedy the issue your local authorised Hyundai dealer or service agent will need to complete the software upgrade.
