2002 Hyundai Elantra. Consumer writes in regards to recall notice concerning front steering or control mechanisms, rust and potential failures the consumer stated on March 10, 2010, she went to the dealer after receiving a recall notice. Upon inspection, it was determined the parts did not need to be replaced. On January 31, 2012, the same parts that were the subject of the recall failed. The consumer stated when the steering failed, the vehicle was violently forced into oncoming traffic which nearly resulted in a head-on collision and was then violently forced back across the lane in which she had been traveling, narrowly missing another vehicle. The vehicle had to be towed as it could not be driven. The consumer had other problems such as the engine light illuminating, due to an internal failure of the catalytic converter and a broken rear spring, as well as weak struts.
