More than 72,000 Hyundai Venue cars are being recalled in the U.S.

Hyundai Venue cars made between September 17, 2019 and June 2, 2022 feature pyrotechnic-type seat belt pretensioners that may deploy abnormally in certain crashes due to overpressurization of the pretensioner's pipe.

If the pretensioners deploy improperly, metal pieces could injure people. Samsong made faulty pretensioners.

72,470 cars are recalled. All owners of the affected vehicles will be notified via mail to bring them to a Hyundai dealer to have the seat belt pretensioner's tiny gas generator and delivery line capped to prevent abnormal deployment.

This fix will be performed at no cost to owners and the car manufacturer will provide reimbursement for owners who have already paid to have the issue resolved.

At the time, Hyundai said it would fix that issue by simply replacing the seat belt pretensioners. It remains unclear why Venue models involved in this first recall are also subject to the second.
