Hyundai is recalling about 978,000 vehicles in the us because the front seat belts could detach and fail to protect passengers during a crash.

According to the notice [PDF] posted with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the fastener for the front driver and passenger seatbelt anchors may not have been fully latched during assembly. If that's the case, a collision might cause the linkage to separate from the pretensioner. One of those incidents resulted in an unspecified minor injury.

Hyundai has received at least two reports from owners about seatbelts detaching during collisions.
