Summary of Complaint

AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES LOGGED ON THE CAR, THE AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON. IT WOULD SOMETIMES TURN OFF DURING BUMPS BUT, ULTIMATELY, IT CAME BACK ON AND STAYED ON. THE MECHANIC SAID THAT THE PIN AND AIRBAG WERE BAD. THEY AREN'T SURE OF THE CAUSE OR HOW IT HAPPENED BUT THE REPAIR (PARTS AND LABOR) IS WELL OVER $1000. THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE A RECALL RELATED TO THIS AND IT'S NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL. THE AIRBAG ISSUE DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY ANYTHING SPECIFIC THAT HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE.

IT HIT CONCRETE PROTECTING A STREET LIGHT AND WAS SMASHED UP AND STOPPED. IT WAS TERRIFYING. I THE CAR DID THIS ON IT'S OWN. I KNOW WHERE MY FEET WERE AND I WAS IN GOOD SHOES. I'M A CLASSICALLY TRAINED PROFESSIONAL BALLET DANCER AND I KNOW WHERE MY FEET ARE IN SPACE AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING. I DID NOT ACCELERATE, THE CAR DID IT ON ITS OWN LIKE THAT AMOS EPISODE IN DOCTOR WHO. IT WAS TERRIFYING, THIS CAR SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO. IT HAPPENED TWO OTHER TIMES, BUT IT DID IT AND THEN STOPPED. THIS TIME IT STOPPED WHEN IT HIT THE OBJECT. THE CARS I HAD BEFORE NEVER DID THIS. THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THIS CAR AND I WAS LUCKY I WAS IN A SAFE PLACE.

VIN: KMHDH4AE9CU****

Summary of Complaint

AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON CONTINUOUSLY BUT IS NOT DUE TO CLOCK SPRING ISSUES AS COVERED UNDER AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. DEALER DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS A FAULTY AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. THIS VEHICLE HAS NEVER BEEN IN ANY SORT OF ACCIDENT AND AN AIRBAG SYSTEM THAT DOES NOT WORK IS NOT A PART OF NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE THAT IS EXPLICITLY HYUNDAI'S RESPONSIBILITY.
