AIR BAGS

7/19/2019 - MOBILE, AL
THE PASSENGER SIDE DASHBOARD HAS TWO LONG CRACKS AROUND OR WITHIN THE AIRBAG AREA. BASED ON SOME GOOGLE SEARCH, THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM IN THE SONATA. I HAVE THE SINGLE OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE. THERE WAS MAJOR ACCIDENT, AND NO FRONT COLLISION OF THIS VEHICLE. THE CRACKS APPARENTLY ARE DUE TO POOR RUBBER QUALITY. THE CRACKS HAVE BEEN NOTICED FOR ROUGHLY A WEEK, THOUGH THE EXACT DATE OF ITS FIRST APPEARNCE IS UNCERTAIN.

AIR BAGS

7/3/2019 - HAYSVILLE, KS
WE BELIEVE OUR VEHICLE HAS A TAKATA AIR BAG SYSTEM. IT IS A 2009 HYUNDAI SONATA THAT WAS BUILT IN 2008. IN NOVEMBER 2018, CRACKS STARTED TO APPEAR ON THE DASHBOARD ABOVE THE AIR BAGS. IT HAS GOTTEN PROGRESSIVELY WORSE SINCE. THE AIR BAG LIGHT HAS COME ON AND IS CONSISTENTLY STAYING ON WHILE DRIVING THE CAR. THE BOOK SAYS TO CONTACT THE DEALER. ALL INDICATIONS FROM INFORMATION ONLINE STATE THAT THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN AND MUST BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY. WE FEEL CONCERNED ABOUT DRIVING IT. IT WAS PURCHASED NEW ON 09/10/2008. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS CAR SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTED IN THE RECALLS FOR THE HYUNDAI SONATAS YEARS 2007-2008 SINCE IT WAS BUILT IN 2008.
