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.

 

What to do

 

Please give us a call on 0800 HYUNDAI (498 632) or email us at customerservice@hyundai.co.nz.

Bugger, I'll have to take mine in then.  Still, better to get it fixed than have it error on me while I'm driving or in a crash.
