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 air bag indicator on the dashboard illuminated and remained illuminated sometime during the summer of 2013. I didn't know what it meant - it wasn't flashing, it didn't say warning, it just said "air bag" - so I didn't do anything about it. I finally called the dealer, lithia Hyundai of reno, to find out what it meant, and they told me to bring it in. They charged me $120 to diagnose the problem. After a couple of hours, they said the passenger side seat bottom cushion was not communicating with the air bag. They offered to repair the problem for $5051.87. Apparently, they had seen the problem before, because the service tech said "this is where I usually lose people" when he showed me the estimate. This is for a car that, according to edmonds, is worth $6500. From other complaints on this website I have found repair estimates ranging from free up to $3000. Apparently, Hyundai sees this problem as a potential profit center. When I got on this web site to file this complaint, I found out there have been numerous other complaints regarding the air bags for the 2007 Azera. Also, there was a recall noted for repairing the air bag/seat belt problem on my model Azera; I was never notified of the recall.

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.

Airbag covering has cracked on either side of the passenger side front airbag module. This first occurred back in 2009 and was told by 2 Hyundai dealers that this is a common problem with the 2006-2009 Azera. In reading several Hyundai Azera forums (edmunds, Hyundai-forums, etc), it is very clear to me that this is indeed a very common problem. As the vehicle was out of warranty at that time, my nearest dealer offered to repair it for $2000+. however, as I feel if the problem is so common, than perhaps a NHTSA investigation is warranted with the hopeful expectation that Hyundai will issue a recall and/or cover the costs to repair. I am deeply concerned that the passenger side airbag will not deploy correctly if and when needed. Please look into this serious safety problem.

My vehicle was struck while standing still waiting for a traffic signal to turn green. The other vehicle which struck my vehicle was traveling possibly 20 - 25 miles per hour. Damage almost totaled my car. My wife was driving, alone in the vehicle and was injured but did not report it at the time. She was injured because the air bag did not deploy. She was wearing a seat belt which operated correctly. At the time, because other cars and excitement, no one paid attention or reported the fact that the front seat air bag did not deploy. Now, four years late, a red air bag warning light has lighted along with another faulty seat belt warning light for passenger side. The Hyundai people deny any problem with the air bag. I believe the air bag system to be defective. I have never been notified of a recall.

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.

The air bag light stays on contacted the dealer since a recall was issued before but was told recall has been closed this seems like a safety issue and the recall should not close, also the power seat switch on drivers side will not recline back seat adjusts forward and now is too far forward information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Hyundai issued a recall notice for the occupant restraint system but did not have the replacement parts at the dealers. So my 2007 Azera was given a partial fix about 6 weeks ago and for the rest of the fix I am still waiting for the dealer to get the seat belt retractor in stock. Meanwhile the air bags are disabled! I don't understand how Hyundai would issue a recall notice for a safety item but not equip itself with the required components for the fix!
