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.

There are two cracks leading from tht passenger side air bag.I have reported this to Hyundai but was denied.I was given no reason why. I consider this a serious safety problem because you will never know when the air bag will deploy.

Dashboard: The molded breakaway seam covering the front seat passenger air bag mounted in the dashboard has split along the breakaway seam. Liquids and dirt can enter. Bag may not function in an accident. Purchased new, garaged. Dealer will not replace.

Cracks started develop cracks on the dashboard on the passenger side over the airbag. Called my local dealer, where I purchased my car, universal Nissan and Hyundai they did not have an knowledge regarding cracks on the passenger side dashboard over the airbag. They suggested that I call Hyundai, I did. I got the same round a round, they gave me case # 5235732. I've seen on the internet many more people with the same problem. Their emails from mechanics and Hyundai personnel acknowledge the issue with the crack over the airbag and that did have their dashboards exchanged. If ever I have an accident and the passenger airbag does not deploy properly and someone is injured or dies some one will answer for it.

I have a crack, out lining the front airbag on the passenger side dash. It is getting bigger. My dealer says that it won't employ on use, but I don't feel safe. They said that to fix it right it will need to have a new airbag put in because they would have to disengage the one that is in there. That will cost us between $600 and $700. I feel that, this is a safety issued and should be the manufacturer responsibility. I have gotten on line and have see several other people who have had this problem. Maybe there should be a recall on this matter. I do not have this kind of money to get this repaired. Could you grantee me that it is safe to drive this was.

I noticed two cracks on the passenger side of dashboard. They follow the outline of the airbag. I am concerned that they may interfere with the operation of the airbag in the event of an accident. I have noticed that this condition is common to Azera owners.

On my 2007 Hyundai Azera, you can't see the dash lights in the middle of the dash when the sun is out. Only when the sun is out, I live in South Florida so its all the time.

While traveling on a highway, the glass of my sunroof 'exploded spontaneously". the time of incident was 6:15 am, the temperature was around 45 degrees and no adverse weather conditions. I was traveling under no overpasses, and no vehicles in front of me. I notice no object striking my car, my passenger and I heard a noise like a gun shot. I had the sun shade closed, so no glass entered interior of car, about 80% of the sunroof blew out leaving glass around rim intact and the blown glass causing damage to top and trunk. Other driver behind me were blowing their horn to tell me it happen plus I could hear wind, I stop and looked at the damage the remaining glass had a upward blown out appearance with no glass left on sun shade. I know this is tempered glass which breaks into tiny pieces. It was good I had the sun roofs closed or I might have had flying glass in eyes causing a accident. I believe this was a manufacturer defect. If a rock had hit it the glass would had fell inward not out.

My 2007 Hyundai Azera has a crack on the dashboard. This concern was noticed around the 65,000 mile range. The crack appears to follow the line of the passenger side airbag and the car is typically parked in a garage, not subjected to elements, and has not endured any unusual stress to cause the crack. Additionally, the rear sunshade that comes standard with my car's model seems to have a faulty motor and no longer automatically goes down when in reverse, as it was designed to do, I trust for safe visibility. The sunshade feature began to fail around the 70,000 mile range and would at times stop at the partway up/down range, creating poor visibility due to the frame showing where it should not show in the rear window. I have a number of emails from Hyundai where they state that these items are not covered under warranty. They have failed to address my safety concerns. In particular, the airbag could deploy without cause or might deploy more forcefully than intended due to the crack. Hyundai refuses to correct these problems at no expense to me, has not addressed my safety concerns, and in taking this position, is failing to stand by the workmanship/quality of their product.

I have 2 cracks on my dash which appear to outline the passenger air bag. I noticed a ~ 1 inch crack several months ago but after reading a recent report on this website, I took another look. I now have 2 very straight crack lines measuring about 6 inches on either side of what appears to be the passenger air bag.
