VIN: KM8JM12B89U****

Summary of Complaint

AIR BAG LIGHT STAYS ON. HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP SAYS THAT THE LIGHT ON MEANS THE AIR BAGS ARE DISABLED AND THE AIR BAGS WOULD NOT DEPLOY IF THE LIGHT IS ON. THE DEALERSHIP SAYS I MUST HAVE THE DIAGNOSTIC TESTS DONE WHICH WILL COST ME ABOUT $125.00 IF THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH A MODULE THAT CONTROLS THE AIR BAG LIGHT I DON'T THINK THE REPAIR SHOULD COST ME ANYTHING. THIS CONCERNS ME BECAUSE OF A SAFETY ISSUE FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS IN MY VEHICLE.

VIN: KM8JM12B49U****

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING IN MOTION OR IN IDLE, CAR ENGAGES IN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION. THIS IS A DANGEROUS ISSUE BECAUSE THE DRIVER MAY NOT BE AWARE OF THE SUDDEN ACCELERATION AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE VEHICLE GOING FORWARD OR BACKWARD (DEPENDING ON THE POSITION OF GEAR.) SUDDEN ACCELERATION HAPPENS EVEN WHEN DRIVER'S FOOT IS PRESSING AGAINST BREAK PEDAL. DANGEROUS SITUATIONS INCLUDE TURNING ON THE CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME DURING THE DAY TO DRIVE OUT OF THE GARAGE IN REAR MOTION. IN THIS SITUATION IT IS COMMON THAT THE CAR MOVES ABRUPTLY BACKWARDS AND ACCELERATES DOWN THE DRIVEWAY RAMP AND TOWARDS THE SIDEWALK AND STREET. IF THERE ARE PEOPLE WALKING BY THE DRIVEWAY OR SIDEWALK, OR CARS APPROACHING THE SIDEWALK, THEY MAY BE HIT. AS DRIVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE DESCENT OF THE CAR OUT OF THE GARAGE RAMP. ANOTHER VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION INVOLVING PEOPLE POTENTIALLY BEING HURT OR EVEN KILLED INCLUDES CAR STOPPED AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT IN IDLE, WHILE PEOPLE ARE CROSSING THE STREET IN FRONT OF THE CAR. IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED THAT THE CAR SUDDENLY ACCELERATED AND MOVED FORWARD WHILE A PERSON WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE CAR, CROSSING THE STREET. THAT PERSON WAS ALMOST HIT. WHILE THERE WAS NOT ANY POTENTIAL PHYSICAL HARM, I (THE DRIVER) AND THE PERSON CROSSING THE STREET WERE VERY UPSET DUE TO THE IMMINENT DANGER. I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THE CAR TWICE TO THE REPAIR SHOP TO LOOK AT THIS PROBLEM, BUT DESPITE COMPLETING TWO MAJOR SERVICES (COSTING ME ALMOST A THOUSAND DOLLARS), THEY HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT WHAT IS CAUSING THE ACCELERATION AND HOW TO FIX. I PLEAD THIS CASE HERE HOPING THAT THE NHTSA WILL FORCE HYUNDAI TO ISSUE A SAFETY RECALL URGENTLY.

I HAVE A 2009 HYUNDAI TUCSON. THE HORN OPERATES MOST OF THE TIME, BUT NOT ALWAYS. IT MAY BE TEMPERATURE RELATED. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER FIVE TIMES, BUT THEY SAY THEY CAN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. I THINK THIS IS DANGEROUS IF I NEED TO USE THE HORN. THE DEALER DID CHANGE THE CLOCK SPRING BUT THE HORN STILL FAILS TO BLOW WHEN ACTIVATED ON OCCASION (MOSTLY WHEN IT IS COLD, RATHER THAN WARM.) *TR
