After a complaint earlier this year that an airbag inflation caused a man's ear to be severed, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is now taking a look at 2011 and 2013 Hyundai Elantras.
The agency had already been looking at 2012 models. It's also upgraded the probe to an engineering analysis which is one step closer to a recall.
This investigation is a result of a man's ear being cut in half after a metal bracket broke off when a side airbag was deployed.
Hyundai says the problem appears to be isolated.
