Hyundai has issued a recall for the 2015 Sonata to fix a seatbelt defect.
A problem with the front seat buckles can prevent the belt from being properly secured. The buckle can jam if the tongue on the belt is inserted into the buckle at an angle.
Driving with unbelted occupants raises the risk of injury or death in an accident, though drivers will be warned of an unbuckled belt via a warning light on the dashboard.
The company is said to be unaware of any accidents or injuries among the 140,000 defective vehicles sold in the US and Canada.
Service technicians will repair or replace buckles in affected vehicles to resolve the issue. The repair process is expected to take less than an hour.
