2006 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

The brake/stop lamp switch has failed again. The switch was replaced in 2009 under the first recall issued for this problem. Another recall occurred in April of 2013, for select 2006 Hyundai Accents. Mine was not covered in this second recall. The switch has failed again and I believe this should have been included in the second recall.

Seat belt light came on again. This was the third time. About 2 years earlier this happened for the second time. The first time was about a year earlier and Hyundai covered that. Code B1706 appears when read for $150 and Hyundai will not fix it even under their extended warranty. They did not want to fix the first two times either. I do not know if my airbags work. Hyundai has sensor problems and knows it. This is the driver seatbelt sensor. They want $702 to fix this defect. I will not pay for their bad engineering. This problem needs a recall. Their oxygen sensors also seem to fail on the engine. They will not cover that either. All of these failures are federal mandated items.
