Failure Date: 02/11/2017

Airbag light on dash is illuminated and the code is b1448 which is associated with the passenger sensor mat being defective. My make and model year was associated with a recall that covered this safety issue but for some reason my specific VIN number was not included, therefor Hyundai will not cover the repair for their safety problem. Frustrated consumer.

My driver's side airbag light has been on for quite some time, and my passenger side airbag light is not detecting anyone sitting in the passenger seat. I took my car to a mechanic and was told it's an electrical issue with my airbags and may be due to a faulty wiring issue under the front passenger seat. Additionally, the low beam on my driver side lighting fixture is not working, although I've had the bulb replaced multiple times. Further, the headlights, although also replaced, don't work at all.

My driver's side airbag light came on suddenly one day. I don't know why since I didn't do anything to the car. I searched online and see previous Hyundai recalls on the airbag for Sonata. 07 Sonata wasn't included though.

Took the car into the shop for an airbag light. They said that it was a bad oc mat sensor. I was quoted $1000+ for parts and labor. I asked why this wasn't covered under the recall because my car was in the range 06-07, they said my VIN did not indicate an active recall. I called corporate and they also said I was sol. This is something that needs to be fully recalled, far too many of them are failing and Hyundai refuses to do anything about them.

This is now the 4th time I have had to take the car in for an airbag light that indicates a bad seat belt sensor. Frustrated to have to still deal with this issue. Stationary on start up light goes off then comes right back on.

My car only has 82,000 miles on it and I am the second owner. For some reason the airbag light came on. I received an extended warranty notification earlier this year in regards to seat buckle assemblies on 2006-2008 Sonatas, which applied to my car. At that time however, I had no issues with the airbag light but now the light has come on. I went to the dealer and they stated that my issue has nothing to do with the seat belt buckle however it has to do with a b1448 080 (occupant classification system) (mat defect) I have spent some time doing research and it appears that a number of people have been experiencing this issue. I am not sure whats going on here but I think we need to look into the air bag issue. I have been quoted a cost of $1,300 to fix this problem and I do not feel that this is acceptable and that the cost should not be pushed on to the consumer, given that it appears to be mat defect which probably stems from the manufacturer. I have also taken this car to the same dealer for service and all the records of service are available. I am just concerned that this air bag issue may be very serious.

The airbag light is on in the dash board and the passenger air bag sign is lit in the center console even though there is no passenger in the passenger seat. It started showing couple of days back at the 106,000 miles. I called the Hyundai customer service and they mentioned that there is no recall open.

Air bag light is constantly on and car has not been in any accidents. Concerned that airbag will not properly function if needed. Hyundai wants between $ 400 and $ 900 to fix issue. This is a major safety issue and several other 2011 Hyundai Sonata owners have the same problem.

On multiple occasions my vehicle has been serviced by a Hyundai dealership in south florida. After "repairing" the air bag signal, it has reappeared on at least four trips to the dealer. After multiple repair (including the replacement of the cables) the following issues still occur; 1) the oil indicator lights and the tachometer lights go on and off periodically, 2) the air conditioner goes off, the comes back again in few minutes, 3) the low air light comes for my tires, 4) engine light, and 5) speedometer indicator went up and down with the vehicle traveling at the same speed. The vehicle is close to 76,000 miles. The above indicated events occurred primarily while driving in city streets. However, some of them were experienced in highway traffic.

My airbag light came on in my vehicle due to bad seat belt pretensioners. After taking my car to the dealer they advised me that the pretensioners had been replaced in 2007 and did not fall under the warranty/recall. After reading that my car falls under the repair statue and statement made by Hyundai my car has not been fixed. The campaign number that I am referring to is campaign number pe14023. The first repairs occurred at 30k and 35k miles approximately.

#1today 9/18/2016 while I was driving down the road my airbag light came on. When I made my first stop the light when off. When I began to drive again the light came on and will not go off. #2 I had to pay over three hundred dollars to have my sterling coupler replaced it started with a little clicking noise when I turn to the right and afterwards began to progress and get louder. While driving the car the steering wheel will shake and vibrate until it felt as if the steering wheel will shake a lose. #3 the lights on my car will flicker on and off while driving it's very obvious at night it is a scary situation. One night they flicker and didn't want to come back on right away until I had to pull over on the side of the road until they came back on. I called my Hyundai dealer and was told that it will be an 118 service charged to look at it because my warranty is up. I then contacted Hyundai USA when they finally contacted me back they pretty much told me the same thing the Hyundai dealer said. The problem with my lights began in 2012 but every time it took the car in the problem could not be detected so they would say and this was when I was under my warranty.
