AIR BAGS

8/9/2014 - SHREWSBURY, MA
RECENTLY I GOT B1513 CODE WITH MY 2005 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. I FOUND THAT MANY SANTA FE OWNERS'S HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM EXACT SAME PROBLEM, BAD SEAT BELT BUCKLE SENSOR(S) WHICH SEEM CAUSING AIR BAG MALFUCTION. IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THAT THIS IS CAUSED BY HYUNDAI USED A BAD BUCKLE SYSTEM AND SHOULD BE RECALLED. I RECENTLY LEARNED THAT NHTSA IS INVESTIGATING VERY SIMILAR PROBLEMS (SEAT BELT BUCKLE) IN 394000 SONATA MODELS.

SEAT BELT LIGHT REMAINS ON, AND ADVISED BY MECHANIC THE AIR BAG WILL NOT DEPLOY DUE TO A FAULTY CONNECTION IN THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE. SEVERAL REPORTED ISSUES WITH THIS, SO WHY HASN'T HYUNDAI RECALLED DUE TO SAFETY ISSUE? MY DAUGHTER OF 21 IS DRIVING THIS VEHICLE AS A SECOND VEHICLE. I'M VERY WORRIED ABOUT HER SAFETY.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, WHEN I WAS DRIVING MY 2005 HYUNDAI SANTA FE, AN AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON THE DASHBOARD. AFTER SIMPLY SEARCHING THE INTERNET, I FOUND THAT THERE ARE ALREADY MANY SAME VEHICLES HAD A SAME PROBLEMS AND COMPLAINTS DUE TO THE BAD WIRE CONNECTIONS UNDER THE DRIVER SEAT. I BELIEVE THIS AIRBAG PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY DUE TO THE FAULT DESIGN OF THE WIRE CONNECTION AND WILL CAUSE A SERIOUS PROBLEM WHEN A CERTAIN ACCIDENTS HAPPEN. HYUNDAI SHOULD RECALL THIS AIR BAG ISSUE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON , TOOK CAR TO DEALER, PASSENGER SEAT BELT BUCKLE WAS REPLACED AT A COST OF 400. DOLLERS. A FEW MONTHS LATER THE LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN, AND IS STILL ON. I CAN' AFFORD TO KEEP PAYING THAT KIND OF MONEY TO GET IT FIXED AGAIN. I UNDERSTAND HYUNDAI HAS BIG PROBLEMS WITH THEIR AIR BAG SYSTEMS. I ALSO HAVE A 2006 HYUNDAI ACCENT WITH THE SAME PROBLEM.
