Vehicle equipt with low profile sports tires. While driving on sr2 in jeruselum township ohio I lost control of the vehicle and began skidding on black ice. Anti-lock brakes did not engage to my knowledge and $9000 damage was done to the vehicle. Rear axle failed during the impact into an embankment which absorbed much of the impact. Side airbag deployed as designed but front did not. I am assuming that this is due to me sliding backwards up the embankment without any direct frontal impact. I walked away from it but am concerned about the fact that Hyundai has marketed this car towards the younger "invinvible" generation who do not realize these tires aren't made for fast driving in bad weather. I am also concerned about why the antilock brakes did not engage. The car is at brown automotive and is still awaiting repair. I have informed the insurance company about the brakes and will follow up with this report when I get word.

I was driving in a parking lot that I drive in daily. I was making a routine turn, and when I began to slow down from 30mph I got to about 20mph and then the brakes locked up as well as the steering wheel. I did not slam on the brakes so they should not have locked. After the car went up on a curb, several seconds later the airbags deployed. They did not depoly on impact. . When I bought the car I was told I had anti lock brakes and now I am told I don't have them and that in itself is a problem with the dealership. The breaks locked up once before and I brought it to Hyundai, I did not have an accident just a scare, and they basically told me it was in my head. The car is unsafe and I am scared of the breaks getting me into a more serious accident. The 4,376 was all from the one accident with the brakes and the airbags.

Driving at a speed of 65 mph when another car cut me off I had to brake and hit the guardrail head on, and the airbagsdid not deploy. When I called Hyundai to complain they told me that due to the cost of airbags they put it in a certain place where you have to hit it for the airbag to deploy. The odd fact was that I had a head on collision if I had not had my seatbelt on I would have gone through the windshield.

We were traveling at 78 mph in montana with our cruise control activated. All of a sudden the brakes slammed on for approximately 5 seconds, throwing us forward and then the accelerator pushed down bringing us to a speed of approximately 80 mph. My husband was able to engage the brakes after several tries. We pulled to the side of the road to gather ourselves and have not used cruise control in our travels since this incident. As soon as possible we will be taking the car to an authorized dealer for repairs. The dealer in spokane, wa told us that the cruise control has nothing to do with the braking system and that the vehicle is safe to drive until our appointment.
