Looking through an open drivers-side door into a Hyundai Elantra

Weld you look at that, the 2021 Elantra has its first recall for poorly constructed seatback recliners. Hyundai wants to inspect roughly 1,500 vehicles to inspect a weld that could be weak enough to allow the seatback to seperate in a crash.

Hyundai reached out to their seat assembly supplier after multiple warranty claims. The supplier wasn't convinced there were any welding issues, but also admitted needing to swap out parts in one of their welding machines after discovering defects in October 2020. 🧐
