Hyundai says the airbag assembly in the steering wheel may come loose from its mounting, which increases the risk of injury in a crash.

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

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