DETROIT — Hyundai is recalling about 140,000 Sonata midsize cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix a problem with the front passenger seat belt buckles.

The recall covers cars from the 2015 model year that were built from April 25, 2014 until Dec. 4, 2014.

Hyundai says that if the metal tongue on the belt is forced into the buckle at an angle, the buckle can jam and won't fasten.

A dashboard warning light will come on if the belt is not buckled. Hyundai says it has no reports of any injuries caused by the problem.

Dealers will either repair the buckle or replace it at no cost to owners. Hyundai says the repair will take less than an hour.
