Hyundai is reporting that the sensors designed to keep airbags from deploying onto children could be faulty, as they may fail to activate when an adult of less than 150 pounds is positioned other than in the exact middle of the seat. Owners with svelte passengers have noticed airbag warning lights, and have been informed that no real fix is available. There is a procedure an owner may attempt in order to reset the sensor, but Hyundai's main piece of advice is to have bantamweights sit in the back, or to take a different car. Thanks a lot, Hyundai— I can smell a recall from here.
