Genesis and Kia Defective Seat Belt Pretensioners Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the 2021 Genesis GV80, the 2022 Genesis GV70 and the 2022 Kia Sorento Hybrid/Sorento PHEV for defective seat belt pretensioners that could explode and send metal fragments into occupants. Seat belt pretensioners help to secure occupants in the event of a crash by tightening the seat belt against the occupant. Recalls issued by Hyundai and Kia over potentially exploding seat belt pretensioners are now under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The investigation involves an estimated 275,000 Hyundai, Genesis, and Kia vehicles. According to the OEM, the pretensioners on certain 2020-2022 Genesis and Kia vehicles may rupture or explode.
