Hyundai Motor America is recalling 1,464 model year 2021 Elantra cars.

The automobile company stated that the driver and front passenger seat back recliners may have been improperly welded at production.

It noted that an improperly welded seat back recliner could separate from the seat back frame during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

In respect of what to do to correct the technical error, the company says dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the seat back frame assembly free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 25, 2021.

Owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service on (888) 371-9460, while Hyundai’s number for this recall is 204.
