During merge onto a major dallas tollway, traffic became stopped in the right lane and upon applying a hard brake of my car, the anti-lock brakes failed to engage, the seatbelt did not lock, my car felt as though it was accelerating even though I was pressing the brake pad hard. I hit the car in front of me once and then again before my car stopped, still running. My car sustained $8500 in damage to the front end, but the air bag did not even deploy. I have owned it for 15 months and have not had an issue of this nature in the past, however I am now concerned of the safety of this vehicle.

While driving east toward home, a large SUV or pickup truck came around the curve with bright lights on, thus blinding me. I did not see a car turning left until too late to stop. Resulting in rear ending the other car. The air bags on my Hyundai failed to deploy. Also I do not think the right seat belt did not catch allowing my wife, the passenger to travel to its end and hitting her head on the dash or windshield, also injuring her right shoulder. I did not receive any recalls on seat belts or air bags.

1. There were no noticeable events that led up to the failure. Hyundai had a recall on the air bag sensor control module in October 2008 (recall id# 80141 & 80132). I had them install the new wiring harness and clips to prevent a spontaneous failure, but I had a failure none the less. 2. The front driver and passenger seatbelts failed without warning. I heard a loud bang noise and the seatbelts tightened up on both front passengers. I noticed an odor after the event and the seatbelts would not extend or retract and the air bag warning light was illuminated. I understand this safety feature was meant to deploy in the event of an accident, but I didn't hit anything. 3. I took the 2001 Hyundai Elantra in to Hyundai to diagnose the failure. The following codes came up on the computer: b1361, b1360, and b1366. I was told I needed to replace the front seat belts and air bag control module.

I had a new 2008 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle had only 3,000 miles on it. I hit another vehicle from behind. It was a direct front hit at about 40-45 mph. The seat belt did not tighten to hold either myself or my passenger back. The air bags for myself and my passenger did not deploy. All professional people (fire dept, mechanics, tow yard, police) stated repeatedly that there was no reason for the air bags and seat belts not to work.

I was in a car accident with my 2005 Hyundai Elantra. My front end of my vehicle was significantly damaged. Identical to the other vehicle. My air bag didn't deploy and my seatbelt didn't latch. I slid under the belt up to my ribs, smashing my knee, feet and fist into the dash. My airbag light lit up as if my airbag deployed. My repair man was appalled that the airbag didn't deploy. He said I had very significant damage and it should have deployed. I don't believe I would have been injured to the degree that I was in the accident. I am supposed to get my car back tomorrow (repaired!?) nothing was done to address the airbag situation except resetting the light on the dash. Hyundai replaced the seatbelt, they told my repair man that the pre-tensor went off as it should. . . That is a lie. Otherwise I wouldn't have slid under the seatbelt. I think this is a huge coverup. I know of another victim of the Hyundai 5 star crash rating. . . . I will have her contact you as well.
