The air bag light has recently illuminated and stays on. There is nothing obstructing the wires under the seats and the vehicle has not been in a crash. The light illuminated while driving down the road and has remained on. Contacted the dealership and was informed that airbags and sensors are only covered under the first 5 years and 60,000 miles. Based on the recent plethora of recalls on the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and after reading countless complaints online with other vehicles of the same make and model having the exact same issues, I am concerned that not only are the airbags covered under a limited warranty, but that this may be another possible recall in the long line of recalls for the Hyundai Sonata. I do not feel that this is a safe car for anyone and feel that the airbag light/deactivation could result in deaths should Hyundai not cover the airbags longer and for individuals who may not be able to afford the repair.

Air bag light is on and will not turn off. I was advised by the dealership that I have to pay $450 to replace a spring inside the steering column for the air bags to deploy. I have never been in an accident. This is frustrating and should be considered a manufacture defect.

Air bag light came on in the dash at approx 86,600 miles; for no apparent reason. Also noticed that the passenger seat belt sign near the center console is flashing even if there is no one seated in the passenger seat.

Sonata recall. The airbag light has been on for 3days now and won't shut off no matter what I do and I'm scared it will deploy. Back in may I noticed the paint in my car shipping after I took it to get washed, now my car looks ugly.

My 2006 Sonata only has 65,000 miles. But the airbag light always on from this year and brake line was rust. For the airbag, the light in dashboard is on when car starting, and the passanger airbag is off even if someone sitting on passanger seat. For the brake, the front brake line was rusted last year and all the brake oil is totally leak out, so there is no brake when driving it. And the rear brake line is broken this year due to rust. I am in freeway when the rear brake leaks, so image how terriable it is. Never seen this from other 10 year old vehicles.

My airbag light and passenger wear belt light came one even when an adult is sitting in the passenger seat. The car had never been involved in an accident so I don't know why the air bag light came on.

My air bag light wont go off. Many people on line have the same problem. You should make this a recall. It stays on the dashboard. Manycar owners of Sonata are complaining about this.

My airbag light randomly came on last week and has not gone off since. I have never had any lights on my dash board illuminate. The mechanics are quoting ridiculous prices to fix it and I am nervous to drive it with the light on.

The airbag light came on and will not go off, took to dealer and they claim the sensor in the seat has gone bad and cost $675 to replace it and also I had to pay $90 just to diagnose it, this should not be right on a 5 year old car, I have seen other complaints online from car owners- I have not replaced part yet as I feel Hyundai should do it for free- and btw there have been 11 recalls on this car so far that I have had to have done- please put pressure on them to recall 2010-2011 Sonatas to fix the issue.

Airbag light came on in the dashboard several days ago, and it stays on. It won't go off. Car has never been in an accident, and light came on when I started the car several days ago and it has been on ever since. Based on research online, it seems like this is not uncommon for this model.

Airbag light on driver's side dash illuminated. Took to mechanic; code read that it was the occupant sensor in the passenger seat (known issue) and covered by Hyundai. Took car to Hyundai dealer to have seat removed, shipped to California, for repair. Dealer states that airbag light will not go off once seat is replaced; it also needs clock spring assembly replaced. This, too, is a known/frequent issue with this age/make/model, however it's not covered by Hyundai. Will cost $400 to replace. This is a safety issue and if it's occurring frequently enough to find numerous forums online with people complaining, it should be a covered/warrantied service performed by Hyundai. Should not have to shell out $400 for repairs. Very upsetting! :(.

Air bag light is on indicating something is wrong, this is a safety issue not an wear and tear problem. I have replace several bulbs in my vehicle each year for five years. Every bulb that I have went out indicating a electrical problem.

Clicking in steering wheel dealer stated needed new coupler cost 4. 00, labor 334. 00. Also airbag light remains on, dealer stated clockspring repair 372. 00. Mileage 69000. Checked Hyundai websites, numerous repairs for these sames issues on the 2011 Sonata, both issues should be a recall issues. With so many of these cars having the same issues, these wld appear to be defects in the manufactured with the cars.

Takata recall: airbag light coming on for no real reason and now deale/mechanicr is quoting a huge amount to replace the sensor. When I tried to search online, it looks like hundreds of Hyundai Sonata customers had a same issue. How could government allowed them to sell these cars when they are not recalling their defective parts ?.

Air bag light is on and does not go off. I went to the Hyundai dealership to fix it, but they said they have to replace two parts and it will cost me about $1200. I googled it and I found out there are many people who drive Sonata have same issue. If it happens before 60000 miles, warranty covers it, unfortunately my Sonata runs about 73000 miles. There are many Sonata owners have same issue so I believe there is something wrong with Sonata since they were made. Please fix this problem, so many Sonata owners do not have to pay their money for it.

Steering wheel makes a clicking noise when turned left or right, and shakes and rattles violently when going over a bump (whether it be a small bump on the road or speed bump). Also shakes and rattles when I brake. After one shake and rattle incident, my airbag light came on and stayed on. None of my steering wheel controls (volume, bluetooth, phone, cruise control, etc. ) work. My horn no longer works also. Took my car to Hyundai dealer and had to pay $118 just to have it diagnosed! really?!? I had to pay in order to find out what was the problem with my car. Service technician said the shaking/rattling problem was the flex coupler assy, which they quoted me was $475 to fix! then they said it would cost me another $225 to fix my steering wheel control issue! come to find out many other people are having the same issue that I'm having. It is a safety concern and should be a safety recall. Called Hyundai customer care and they told me they can't do anything about it because I went over my warranty mileage limit. This is a huge safety concern issue because when my steering wheel shakes, I feel like it's gonna fall off. I don't feel safe driving a car that violently shakes. Considering so many people are having this same problem, I don't understand why Hyundai isn't taking the time to look into this issue and resolving this problem with so may complaints regarding the same issues! I'm not paying another $700 to fix my car when it is obvious Hyundai used cheap ($2. 00) part that are breaking down on their consumers. I already paid $118 just to find out what the problem was! Hyundai needs to resolve this issue as soon as possible before it gets worse and/or fatal! this issue needs to be recalled!.

Airbag light came on at 66800 miles. Took car to Hyundai dealership being told driver seat needs replaced because sensor went bad!!!! says it will be like 800 dollars to get a new seat. So airbags won't work unless I buy a new seat. There should be a safety recall done on these 2011 Hyundai Sonata limited with this problem!!!! I have read that lots of people who own these cars have the same problem!!!!.
