On 10/15/16 I was in a multi impact accident. After hitting a curb, small tree, took a stop sign out, my car landed into a tree in between two 10 in. Bushes. As the car seemed to settle I immediately smelled a chemical odor. I then saw a small white what I thought was paper appear on the inner steering wheel, suddenly blood was pouring down my face where I could barely see. I thought the car was on fire because of the smell. It did not smell like gas but more like sulfur. I was transported to uci trauma center where I stayed for four days. My car had 6 airbags and all failed except for the one I saw when my car settled. Since I bought the Elantra I reported to Hyundai that while I was driving and sometimes when I would turn left the car would stop, then accelerate full speed. I have the work order. This acceleration would happen while driving, slowing down for a stop light and when turning to the left. I have several witnesses who have been with me when this happens, the car does not require that I restart it, it just stops then accelerates. It has done this three or four time a month.

The contact owns a 2016 Hyundai Elantra. The contact stated that while driving at 25 mph, the contact crashed into another vehicle. The contact stated that the air bags deployed and emitted fire during the deployment. A police report was filed. There were no injuries reported. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 9,999.
All of the issues I am having appear to be involved with the components of/electrical connections to my steering wheel. The red airbag "error" light came on (intermittently at first) about 6 months ago when the vehicle had approx 64k miles on it. Over the next few months, the horn has stopped working (another potentially large safety issue), and the buttons that control the upward volume and radio station browsing have been wavering between working sometimes and not working at all. I did some research about the airbag and horn problems, and there were many stories from other owners of Hyundai Elantras of various years with the same issues. In addition, their experiences with dealers sounded very much like mine in that they (the dealer(s)) want to charge a sum of money to first inspect the vehicle and then charge for the repair(s). Because the airbag and horn problems are potentially very dangerous, I felt the need to report these concerns. I am attaching a picture that I took with my cell phone on 8/17/16 for reference.

My 19 year old daughter was in an accident on April 9th 2016 in her 2013 Hyundai Elantra. . Both vehicles were at a dead stop at an intersection before either of them started moving. My daughter was going straight and the other vehicle was turning, both of which were going approximately 10 mph. My daughters car hit the front fender of the other vehicle causing a bent wheel and a small dent to the fender. My daughters Hyundai, totaled. Every airbag in the Hyundai deployed, including the back seat which seemed strange since it was a frontal crash. The transmission wouldn't go in to any other gear it was stuck in drive. The hood was smashed up to the front windshield. The damage to the car was over $12,000 there has to be some faulty part(s) or equipment on the car to cause such damage at such low speeds. I can't imagine what could happen at highway speeds in a crash in a Hyundai. I wrote to Hyundai about safety concerns of their Hyundai Elantras, their response was unacceptable: "we understand that you are dissatisfied with the design of the 2013 Elantra and we apologize for any disappointment this has caused you. This information has been forwarded to all appropriate parties within Hyundai for review, including Hyundai management. " really Hyundai! people can be severely injured or die in these vehicles which I feel Hyundai needs to be a little more concerned.

I had to replace struts in front.
My wife hit a gard rail at 65 mph in the front and broke the bumper in half and mess the hole front end up and the air bags never went off. So I was w ordering why we never receive a recall about the air bag system. Lucky she didn't get hurt to bad but I'm just concerns are why didn't they go off.
I was driving on a road at 45 mph and the car in front of me swerved so I started to swerve as well assuming that there was something in the road. He then jammed on his breaks in the swerve and so did I but I ended up hitting the back of the other car. He had a newer Hyundai sonata and I had a 2015 Hyundai Elantra se. I think the road was slick as well as we had recently had a snowstorm that ended the day before with about a foot of snow. The damage to the other vehicle was rear bumper damage on the left side. My damage was mostly on the right side bumper of my car to the middle of my car. The radiator was pushed back into the engine. No airbags deployed at all and my chest hit the steering wheel. I was going west bound on a a two-lane road. Afterwards my car obviously would not engage to drive to try and get it out of the road way. I had some whiplash and some damage to my right cheek from hitting the steering wheel. The steering wheel was still intact and none of the airbags deployed. I showed a picture to the er and they were shocked that none of the airbags deployed and the officer on the scene was equally disturbed that the airbags didn't deploy as well. I will attach a picture of the front end of my car.
I was in a frontend collision and the airbags did not work. I struck the vehicle go 50 mph which was a front end collision. I only suffers minor shoulder injuries. My concern is when the collision shop completes the work fixing my car, will I feel save if another collision occus. I don't know of any recalls at this time.
