2 model years added to Hyundai safety probe


DETROIT — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday that it has added two model years to an investigation of an air bag problem with Elantras, from Hyundai Motor Co., that cut a car owner’s ear in half.

Elantras from the 2011 and 2013 years are to be looked into. The agency also upgraded the probe to an engineering analysis, a step closer to a recall.
