2008 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #3

Apr 012014


  • 86,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the front passenger side air bag warning light flickered when the seat was being occupied. In addition, the air bag warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that the air bag sensor in the passenger seat failed and the front passenger seat needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 86,000.

The passenger occupant sensor in the lower seat cushion failed causing the airbag light to stay on. The dealership scanned the computer and received code B1448. Passenger airbags would not inflate if there was an accident. Needed to replace the sensor to pass inspection.

problem #1

During morning traffic my Hyundai 2002 Accent gs was hit from the rear. The collision caused my seat to collapse. The seat collapsing caused my body to travel towards the rear of the car. I struck another vehicle with the front of my car which caused my body to go forward. I notified Hyundai about the incident in writing and there response was that the seat was designed to absorb the impact and that they had no other comment on the matter. This was not a matter of absorbing an impact. The seat completely collapsed. I have all the information and responses in writing. I have also done research and found that I am not the only person that has had a seat collapse in a rearend collision. Hyundai should address this issue so that others can avoid the injuries that result from not being adequately restrained when the seat collapses.
