NHTSA records state that Hyundai is recalling 65,517 of its Genesis SUVs and sedans due to a problem that could lead to a portion of the seat belt pretensioner exploding.
With some collisions, the seat belt pretensioner may overpressurize and detonate. According to the NHTSA assessment, the explosion might unleash flying metal shards that could endanger the safety of everyone within the car.
