Hyundai to recall cars over air bag problem

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hyundai Motor Co. said Thursday it would recall 240,000 Elantra sedans because the computer that operates the air bag system could confuse a child seat for an adult in the front passenger seat.

The recall involves vehicles from the 2004-05 model years. The Elantra is the South Korean-based automaker's most popular-selling vehicle in the United States.
