There is a problem with my 2017 Elantra the dealership cannot diagnose or repair. The front passenger seatbelt alarm and warning light is often enabled when no one or nothing is in the seat. The only way to disable the alarm is to buckle the seatbelt. I am very concerned about this because the seatbelt may fail when it is needed. I am not happy knowing there is a problem with the car the dealership cannot repair. I don't feel safe in the car because I am not confidant the seatbelts are properly working. #elantraghostrider #hyundaighostrider.

Start October 2015, when I pull the seat belt it generate rattling noise but no problem to buckle up. I did not aware that was a safety issue. When my daughter borrowed and drove on the road last week (11/24/2015), she heard the noise and tested it by pulling out quickly, the seat belt did not hold her back. That meant I was driving on the road without working seat belt for two months. Please look into this, see if anyway can warn the driver the dangerous situation. Myself just was not Smart enough to see this potential safety issue.

The air bag light came on in my 2007 Hyundai Elantra. When I took it to the dealership, they said that there was some kind of electrical failure in the driver's side buckle assembly. I have heard of similar issues in 2006-2008 sonatas. I am concerned that this may be a factory defect.
