Driving around 35 miles an hour and come to a small curve turned the wheel little bit but car went straight and guard rail hit passager side front of car and driver airbag came out but didn't blow all the way up and had a hole in it with stitching around it so driver airbag is no count just falls in your lap and electric steering is unpredictable.

I was in an accident on 11/30/17 that had three impacts and not one airbag deployed. I had an accident in 10/2016 and it did not deploy either, but I figured maybe because it wasn't as violent of an accident. The November accident was hard and several people have indicated that they were shocked they did not deploy including a deputy, a couple of doctors, and two insurance representatives. My car was totaled so I do not own it anymore. I was driving about 45-50 mph on a straight road and a person came from side street stop sign at me to clip the front passenger side, caused front driver side to hit a guardrail, and finally the car went head first into shallow ditch (hit rotten post and a lot of bushes). Driver door would not open all the way, a hole was in the driver front tire, the front passenger tire looked concaved/misshapen on the car.

It is unacceptable for a vehicle to not cover safety concerns as it is clearly an issue with Hyundai's manufacturing.

"takata recall" today 9/25/17, I took my car to my mechanic because the horn does not work. I was told that the pad in the steering wheel where the airbag is. It is not making contact to make the horn work. He stated that it was a defect from the factory. I never got a recall notice of there being a problem with the airbag. The mechanic was able to test the horn under the hood of car, however whenever I need to blow the horn it does not work.

When the vehicle is in motion, the car when moving at a slow speed, like take off at a signal light, the car will shut down. While in motion the car will make loud noise when taking off slow. The sir bag light is on but dealer states nothing is wrong with the car. Engine light is not on. This has been happening for about a month. No one can seem to tell me what is the problem is or how to repair it. I checked google for the problem and many Hyundai Elantra owners are having the same issues. I feel like I was ripped off and Hyundai isn't doing anything about it. Please help.

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.

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.
