DETROIT (AP)  – Hyundai Motor Co. is recalling 137,500 Tucson SUVs because the air bags aren’t correctly mounted to the steering wheel.

The recall involves 2011-2014 model years. The affected vehicles were built between Jan. 3, 2011, and Dec. 23, 2013.

Hyundai says the air bag assembly in the steering wheel may come loose from its mounting. That increases the risk of injury in a crash.

The company discovered the issue through warranty claims. It has no reports of injuries or accidents related to the issue.

 

Hyundai dealers will repair the air bag assembly for free starting next month. Hyundai will notify owners.
