The occupant classification system (OCS) installed in the right front seat of the vehicle will not turn off and will not detect a person in that seat and turn the "passenger seat air bag off" light off. This has been a reoccurring problem in other Hyundai vehicles and recalls have been issued. For some reason, the Elantra has not been included even though it uses the same system and there have been many complaints. This is a definite safety issue and needs attention. .

I was driving my Hyundai 2010 I hit a parked car driving about 35mph none of my airbags deployed.
Earlier this month, two attempts to turn off/reset the red airbag symbol failed leaving me with a constant fear of safety for myself and passengers while driving my 2012 Hyundai Elantra. Inexplicably, the red airbag symbol popped up onto my dashboard screen even though I have never been involved in a collision with this car. I am the first and only owner and sole driver of my automobile. According to mechanics who have checked the airbag problem, in the event of a collision the airbag will malfunction potentially setting off a serious scenario for driver and passengers. Two attempts to readjust the airbag symbol and correct the problem were made by glendora Hyundai in southern California followed by a reputable automobile repair shop. The problem could not be traced or identified using state of the art diagnostic testing, thus, the root of the problem remains a mystery. Again, as long as the source of the airbag problem remains undetected the problem cannot be corrected and my vulnerability to being seriously injured is a viable specter that will no doubt be realized in the event I experience the misfortune of a vehicle to vehicle collision.

Regardless of whether or not a passenger is seated in the passenger seat, the 'air bag' light on the dashboard goes off - problem began upon initially starting car, and is not linked to any accident ever occurred. A recall should be issued by the department of transportation for the safety of passengers riding in these vehicles.
When I was sideswiped and then he drove down the whole left side of my car the airbags did not go off. I went up a some hill and hit cable box and still no airbags my back door was on the street afterwards. The front drivers door was pushed in about 3-5 inches and still not airbags they say he did not hit me in the right spot. Some of the front and rear bumper is missing to. I am not sure where he needed to hit me if we have 6 airbags that should go off then why no airbags . I have seen less damage to a car and there airbags go off. I have own Hyundai's for over 14 years and this car sucks . I will never pay again my car is totaled so I am still confused at where my airbags need to be hit to go off.
