2006 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

On 3/15/11 my right side curtain airbag and passenger seat airbag deployed with no collision or impact or any kind, striking my passenger. I was driving down the road, out of town in jacksonville fl. And almost getting to our destination, and thought we were shot. I pulled into the closest gas station and tried to call jso to make a report, they said they couldn't make a report on manufacturer defect, so I called to make an insurance claim. The next morning I contacted a local Hyundai dealership, and they told me bring it in immediately. Upon bringing in my car they insisted they needed to do a diagnostics test. After 2 days of having my vehicle, and a rental at my expense, I had to come home to charleston, SC. The dealership in jacksonville, janck hanania's Hyundai of orange park, told my insurance company the airbag deployment was due to used tires on the vehicle. After returning to charleston, I took my car to another Hyundai dealership, hendrick Hyundai North, and finally was given a number to contact Hyundai motors America. The dealership still has my car, Hyundai has told me nothing and still will not except responsibility for the airbag deployment.
