Was broadsided in my 2006 Hyundai Elantra, prior to my accident had car at dealer twice where car was purchased for problems with airbag light going off an on. No matter who sat in front seat it still did that. I was told both times that it was fine only it wasn't, my 14 yr. Old daughter was in front seat the side air bag did not go off. She hit her head on the passenger window causing her to be rushed to the hospital. She is ok but still feeling pain. Only after this accident did I hear about some of the recalls and troubles others have had.

I was in casa grande Arizona driving North on trekell road when I was hit in the driver side of my 2006 Hyundai Elantra while going through an intersection. The front, back and passenger side was not damaged. The driver door, and part of the back door came in about 1 ft. I ended up with a bruise lung, 2 cracked ribs, and grade 2 cut on my spleen. Both front air bags went off, but driver side air bag did not deploy at all. I have alot of pictures that shows no damage what so ever to the front or passenger side. The only damage to my car was on the diver side where the front door and part of the back door came into the car about 1 ft. My car is a total loss.

All bags in the car failed to open upon impact, don't buy "Hyundai"S and Hyundai said that since 2002 they knew about this problem. With Elantras and other models. But did nothing to fix them.
