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.

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. .

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.
