i have the 05 elentra and the airbag light has been on since i bought it in january of 06. i was never told about the recall or how to get it fixed, now my car after all these years get a rejection sticker because of the airbag light being on, my car right now is listed as unsafe because of a light no one fixed or told me was a problem. the place i got the car from has never in the past been reliable either. they took my money and said we are done with you. they dont return calls and if they do they act like they cant stand the fact you contacted them. i have to have this replaced in order to get my car legal again, but im unemployed and cant pay for it out of my own pocket. this sucks. people are so greedy they make things so fast and dont take time to make sure everything works correctly then the consumers like me are left holding a broken bag of groceries. not fair!!

Do you drive a 2005 HYUNDAI ELANTRA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
