Car makers have a new warning for some Hyundai owners.

Safety regulators said they are considering expanding a recall of the Hyundai Elantra to include the touring version.

Transportation officials have now opened an investigation to determine if 52,000 touring cars from 2009 through 2012 should be added to a previous recall.

Hyundai recalled nearly 200,000 Elantras in March because a ceiling support bracket can come loose when side air bags inflate.

The touring models have a similar bracket design.

Hyundai said the automaker will cooperate with the investigation.
