Airbag error light came up suddenly at about 125K miles and stays. The code read is B1448 - the malfunction of passenger occupancy sensor. The remedy suggested was to replace the passenger seat, which will cause expensive $1000+. this make/year/model should be on recall list and Hyundai should fix the issue for the customers since this important safety issue popped up without any fault on customers part.

Air bag light is on with code B1517, and B1448. Shop is unable to determine whether airbag will deploy or not. How many people have to complain about the same issue before something is done about it? I've read multiple complaints over the same issue. If an air bag doesn't deploy that could most definitely be fatal.

The airbag light came on and found out it's the drivers seat sensor is broken now causes all airbags not to work and to fix it is a ridiculous price this should be covered by the recall I can not afford to get this fixed so hope there is some kind of recall.

The airbag light came on. I have taken it to the dealer twice, they have cleaned around the sensor to make the light go off twice. They said that if it comes on again, they have to replace the entire passenger side seat. Dm scan code: B1448. They told me that if I don't get it fixed, the air bags will not deploy if there is a collision.

There is a split in the passenger dash air bag, that has been getting bigger as time goes on. Took to dealer to get fixed. Will entail replacing airbag and costing a lot. We feel that it is the manufacturer responsibility to have this done not our. They disagree.
