OKLAHOMA CITY — Hyundai is recalling two of its models.

The automaker is recalling nearly 200,000 Santa Fe SUVs because the front passenger airbag may have problems detecting smaller adults and may not deploy during a crash.

The recall involves 2007 through 2009 Santa Fe models.

Hyundai will notify owners and dealers will update the software for free.

Hyundai is also recalling more than 20,000 Sonata sedans because the side air bag may inflate when there is no crash.

The sedans are 2012 and 2013 models.

The company will replace the side airbags for free.
