March 8, 2018—Hyundai is recalling nearly 155,000 Sonata midsize cars in the U.S. due to the fact that the airbags may not inflate in a crash, according to USA Today.

The recall covers cars from the 2011 model year. According to the report, a short circuit in the airbag control computer can stop the seat belts from tightening before a crash, as well as prevent the airbags from deploying.

The recall is expected to start on April 20, according to USA Today.
