WASHINGTON, July 30 (UPI) -- U.S. regulators said Hyundai-Kia is recalling 22,512 Sonata passenger cars because air bags could deploy improperly due to a manufacturing error.

The curtain side airbags in 2012-13 Sonatas made from Jan. 24to June 21 "may inflate without deployment command," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday.

Hyundai dealers will notify owners and provide a replacement air bag free of charge.

Consumers can call 800-633-51512 for information.
