Failure Date: 02/23/2018

Airbag light illuminated, dealership says sensor needs replacing which requires replacement of front passenger seat track assembly. Sensor is part of assembly and can't be replaced separately. Cost with tax will be $975. Another code came up along with this one. One on steering column was covered by Hyundai so can't understand why this one shouldn't be as well. Seems asinine to have sensor integrated into seat track and not replaceable on its own.

1 week ago I purchased via private sale a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. The airbag light came on the next day. I took to garage for required annual inspection and failed because the airbag light is on. I find it quite impossible to be charged the enormous fee from a dealer to correct this issue. Then I found out it had been recalled in the past for this issue and now Hyundai is no longer honoring the free fix. What can you do for me?.

My 2011 Hyundai Sonata had the air bag light come on. It was diagnosed as a bad sensor in the passenger seat. To buy this sensor you have to buy an entire seat track assembly at a cost of $1259. 00 plus labor to install it. After looking this up on the internet, I see many Hyundai vehicles have had this issue. This should be covered in a recall as it is a safety issue and been a problem with many vehicles.

Responded to a airbag recall July 2013. Dealership indicated they corrected recall. However, now 11/2017 airbag light goes on. Car mechanic says light is indicating a recall on airbag. Contacted Hyundai consumer affairs and was told that the correction only replaced the seatbelt not the seatbelt tentioner and we were never informed that their was no fix at the time for the tentioner. No further notice went out indicating repair could be done. They indicate it can be fixed now under campaign txx2.
