Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED A 2007 HYUNDAI ACCENT ON MAY 12, 2007. ON THE DAY I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE I REALIZED THAT THE PASSENGER AIR BAG WOULD NOT ACTIVATE WHEN MY FIANCE SAT IN THE SEAT. WE POINTED THIS ISSUE OUT TO THE SALESMAN , AND HE SUGGESTED I BRING THE CAR IN ON MONDAY TO GET THE SENSOR CHECKED OUT. I BROUGHT THE CAR IN TO THE DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPARTMENT ON MAY 14, 2007. THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT COULD NOT FIND ANY PROBLEM WITH THE SENSOR. LATER THAT DAY I HAD MY FIANCE SIT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT AGAIN THE SENSOR STILL DID NOT RECOGNIZED HER AS LARGE ENOUGH TO ACTIVATE THE AIR BAG SYSTEM. I WENT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPARTMENT ON MAY 17, 2007 TO HAVE THEM LOOK AT THE SENSOR AGAIN. THEY INDICATED THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO BECAUSE THEIR SYSTEM SHOWED THE SENSOR AS OPERATING PROPERLY. I THEN CALLED HYUNDAI MANUFACTURING CONSUMER AFFAIRS OFFICE TO DISCUSS THE PROBLEM. HYUNDAI MANUFACTURER'S CURRENT POSITION WAS THAT THE SENSOR WAS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. HOWEVER, I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH ON THE COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ADVANCED PASSENGER AIR BAG SYSTEMS. THE RESULTS OF MY RESEARCH SHOWED THAT MY CAR WAS NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH EITHER OF THE TESTING METHODS AVAILABLE FOR THE MANUFACTURER TO USE. I WAS AWAITING FOR A FINAL RESPONSE ON THE PROBLEM FROM HYUNDAI. *AK

Summary of Complaint

REGARDING NHTSA REFERENCE # 1088179: MY AIR BAG LIGHT STARTED STAYING ON AROUND FEBRUARY 2017. I MADE APPOINTMENT ON PHONE WITH ONLY HYUNDAI CERTIFIED SERVICE DEALER NEAR MY HOME 3-2017AND DROVE TO CHICO (70 MILES AWAY). THEY SAID IT MUST BE BATTERY AND CHARGED ME FOR A NEW BATTERY. I CALLED THEM AROUND APRIL 1, 2017 TELLING THEM LIGHT WAS STILL COMING ON AND THEY SAID I WOULD HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE NEW SEAT AND SYSTEM, NO SAFETY ISSUE RECOGNIZED BY HYUNDAI, THEREFORE I WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE TO ENTIRE COST REGARDLESS OF SAFETY ISSUES. I CALLED HYUNDAI USA WHICH GAVE ME A CASE # 1012618 BUT SAID THERE IS NO RECALL ON FILE WITH HYUNDAI AND I COULD FILE A COMPLAINT WITH NHTSA. I AM SENDING THEM A COPY OF WHAT I AM FILING WITH YOU. I LOOKED UP OTHER HYUNDAI ACCENT 2007 COMPLAINTS AND HYUNDAI SAID THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE A RECALL. A LOCAL AUTO REPAIR AGREED TO REPLACE ITEMS FOR MY PAID INVOICE AMOUNT ENCLOSED. I'M FILING THIS NOW BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE A STATISTIC FOR SEAT BELT FAILURE OR FAULTY AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT AND MAYBE HELP SOMEONE ELSE.

DRIVERS SIDE VANITY MIRROR WOULDNT STAY UP (LIKE SO MANY OTHERS) LESS THEN 2 DAYS AFTER PURCHASING FROM USED CAR DEALERSHIP (2007 ACCENT, BOUGHT IN 2016). SINCE THE THING WOULDNT STAY UP WHILE DRIVING AND I HAD SOMEONE FOLLOWING ME TO GET SOMEPLACE THEY NEEDED TO BE ASAP, I JUST RIPPED THE DARN THING OFF BECAUSE IT WAS ALREADY CRACKED ON THE SUPPORT BAR. IT CAME RIGHT OFF WITH VERY LITTLE EFFORT REQUIRED. I DONT USE IT SO I HAVE NO INTENTION OF HAVING IT FIXED USING VELCRO TO HOLD IT UP AFTER ITS PUT BACK IN PLACE. I REMOVED THE WIRING AND BAR ATTACHMENT. IM JUST GRATEFUL THERE WAS NO TRAFFIC AT THE TIME, SO THERE WAS LITTLE CHANCE OF AN ACCIDENT (OTHER THAN ACCIDENTAL DRIFT TO THE SIDE).
