TAKATA RECALL ABOUT MAY 2016 AIRBAG DASH LIGHT AND PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT MALFUNCTION, DASH LIGHT STAYS ON, PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PASSENGER. TOOK VEHICLE TO DEALERSHIP ON 8/18/16, AND WAS DIAGNOSED THAT "PROBLEM DUE TO A MAKEUP BAG WEDGED UNDER PASSENGER SEAT CAUSING POOR CONTACT AT CONNECTORS." WITHIN 4 DAYS, AIRBAG DASH LIGHT AND PASSENGER LIGHT WERE MALFUNCTIONING AS INITIALLY DESCRIBED ABOVE. TOOK VEHICLE INTO DEALERSHIP ON 9/8/16 FOR SAME PROBLEM. DEALERSHIP DID A PODS RESET, A RECALIBRATION AS I UNDERSTAND IT. AIRBAG DASH LIGHT AND PASSENGER LIGHT WORKED FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE THEY MALFUNCTIONED AGAIN AS INITIALLY DESCRIBED ABOVE. FURTHER COMMUNICATION WITH DEALERSHIP HAS BEEN TO INFORM ME THAT THE "OCS MAT IS $2473.50 PLUS $312.50 FOR INSTALL. THAT'S THE WHOLE SEAT. HYUNDAI DOES NOT OFFER IT SEPARATE." THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. THIS IS NOT MY BILL TO FOOT, IT'S HYUNDAI'S. IN THE MEANTIME, I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE AIRBAG PROTECTION.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

10/19/2016 - BATON ROUGE, LA
FAULTY GAS GAUGE. AFTER FILLING UP TO A FULL GAS TANK, GAS GAUGE WILL GO UP AND DOWN AND EVENTUALLY STOP AT AN INCORRECT READING. THIS HAPPENS WHETHER THE VEHICLE IS STATIONARY OR IN MOTION. I NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH GAS I HAVE WHICH IS INCREDIBLY UNSAFE AND DANGEROUS!!! WHEN THE GAUGE GETS BELOW HALF A TANK, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL COME ON. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR MONTHS AND NOW THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL NOT TURN OFF AT ALL NO MATTER HOW MUCH GAS THE CAR HAS. THEN, CAR STARTED TO SMELL LIKE GAS INSIDE WHEN DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. TOOK TO HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP TO FIX AND WAS QUOTED OVER $1,000. THIS VEHICLE SHOULD BE RECALLED, THE GAS GAUGE ISSUE IS A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE SOMEONE COULD RUN OUT OF GAS AND BE STRANDED.
