The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling 65,226 2006 to 2009 Hyundai Azera cars because the airbags may fail to deploy in a crash.

The cars were manufactured from September 27, 2005 through October 1, 2008. And according to the NHTSA the wiring harness for the right front seat belt tension sensor may be damaged after repeated use of the seat belt. If the seat belt tension sensor wiring becomes damaged the air bag will not deploy.

Hyundai will begin notifying owners in February and repair the vehicles free of charge.

If you have questions you can call 1-800-633-5151.

Chris sent me an e-mail today reminding me that Carfax has a terrific web site that lets you easliy search recalls for your specific car by the make and model. To learn more go here.
