Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

The contact owned a 2006 Hyundai Azera. While driving 30 mph, the vehicle struck a block of ice and the contact lost control of the vehicle. As a result, the vehicle skid across the intersection, crashed into a tree head on, and landed in a frozen retention pond. The seat belt was tithing across the contact's chest causing her to bleed. The contact required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to an independent tow lot. The vehicle was destroyed. In addition, the air bags failed to deploy. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 71,400.

Azera 6-cyl

  • 136,500 miles
The air bag light in the instrument cluster lighted and from time to time was off but has been lighted since approximately 145,700 miles, about two years 3 months. In dealer and independent mechanics tests the code indicated that the seat belt sensor is malfunctioning and that the side impact air bag located in the right front seat back may be inoperative. This indicator light is currently lighted. Hyundai provided an examination of the front right airbag located in the right dash. It was indicated to be functional. In queries to Hyundai I have been told that the front airbag was repaired according to the recall requirement. Is the recall correction only valid for one correction?

I have a airbag light on my dash. Hyundai dealership says it is the seat belt tensioner on the driver side. Hyundai has recalled the car for the seat belt tensioner on the passenger side but they told me the driver side is not a recall. How can that be?

The air bag lights on driver's side and passenger side stay on to let you know the air bags do not work. We have already been through the process of replacing the tension sensor wiring harness clip. The problem has manifested itself again. I have talked to the manufacturer and they will not offer any help or solutions since the items were replaced under the earlier recall. I do not believe it is my responsibility to replace the defective parts at an estimated cost of $408. Hyundai told me to mail in the receipt once the item is repaired and they might consider making some sort of "goodwill" reimbursement. I am frustrated with their response and disappointed at how they have responded to a known defect.

I own a 2006 Hyundai Azera. The air bag warning light was illuminated in the instrument panel. Took it to the dealer May 24, 2013, and was told that the passenger seat sensor needed to be replaced and would cost $500. If I wanted this repaired, they would have to order the part and I was to call them and let them know. Afterward, I looked on your web site and found that there is a recall. Call the dealer and found out that I had the recall done April 17, 2010, and would have to pay for it to be repaired again. It seems to me that Hyundai did a temporary fix for this problem. Since consumers have had this problem to recur after the fix, it is obvious that this is just a band aid. The fix doesn't even last five years. Because this will not allow the air bag to deploy, this is a safety issue and Hyundai should repair the sensor for as long as the original owner owns the vehicle without charge.

I took my vehicle in to be repaired for the recall for the air bag sensor. Three months later the light came on again and I took it back to have it evaluated and now they are saying that it the seat belt buckle pre tensioner sensor. I said to them that it was repaired already and they said that it was not. Through further investigation I found on a web site from the Hyundai dealer for campaign 094 that when repairing the wiring harness that they are to look at the sensor as well and fix at that time and submit a claim for this. Now they are wanting to charge me for something that should have been repaired in the beginning.

Azera

  • 10 miles
I have owned my 2006 Hyundai Azera since 9/06. From the beginning my complaint to them has been the passenger air bag would not engage when I was sitting as a passenger. I am petite but the answer of "you are just too thin" was really not the professional answer I was searching for. This also has happened when my 16 year old 180lbs son was my passenger. In 1997, I was involved in a head on collision with a drunk driver. I was very adamant with the service dept about this issue as I know my air bag deployment saved me in that crash. When did Hyundai know this was a problem with the Azera during the years they were telling me I did not weigh enough. What will I be before this gets fixed, if they are better than Toyota at that, or, if I am involved in another innocent accident? I just don't think this recently discovered as it has been happening to me since 2006. I feel as if my life has been arbitrarily ignored for the past 4 years and that is wrong.
