2010 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 122016


  • 95,400 miles


Was involved in a front-end collision on February 12, 2016, the driver's side airbag failed to deploy. The car's history indicated no prior accidents or airbag deployment. The car was in motion (55 mph) and driving straight on a state highway. The other vehicle entered an intersection without looking, and the Hyundai hit it broadside at full speed, as there was minimal stopping time.

The contact owns a 2010 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the brake light failed to illuminate when the service brake was depressed. The contact replaced the brake light switch and the vehicle was repaired. In addition, the contact mentioned that the passenger seat would not detect when an occupant was in the seat. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The technician diagnosed that the seat occupant sensor mat would need to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The dealer and manufacturer were made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 94,500.

I was driving approximately 20mph when I heard a breaking noise from underneath my 2010 Hyundai Accent when I lost steering power, the brakes didn't work and the accelerator as well. This caused me to lose control of my car resulting in me crashing into another parked vehicle. Thank god it wasn't on a hwy going 65-70 mph. I see there aren't any recalls on any of the mentioned problems. Also to note I had to replace a coil pack that I read another owner had problems and the airbag light came on and I'm thinking there's also a problem with that too. Thanks Hyundai for not keeping your consumers safe. How many people have to die in accidents cause of manufacture defects before they investigate and issue a recall. I will never purchase another Hyundai. Buyer be warned!
