Hyundai has issued a recall for over 2 lakhs vehicles in the United States due to exploding seat belt parts

Hyundai is recalling 239,000 cars in the United States because the seat belt pretensioners can explode and injure the people inside of the cars

To date, three injuries have been reported—two in the United States and one in Singapore, authorities said

The cars covered in the recall are some 2019-2022 Accents, 2021-2023 Elantras, and 2021-2022 Elantra hybrid vehicles, Reuters said

Hyundai is expected to notify owners of the recall by July 15, Consumer Reports said

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked Hyundai to investigate after hearing about an accident involving a 2021 Elantra

That recall covers certain 2013 and 2014 Sonata sedans, many of which were recalled for the same problem in 2020, according to the recall notice
