2007 Hyundai Elantra Recalls

The Brake Light Switch May Fail Prematurely

The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

Driver's Air Bag Could Deploy at Incorrect Pressure

The air bag control module may receive an unstable electrical signal from the driver's fore/aft seat position sensor. This could cause the driver's front air bag to deploy at the incorrect pressure in the event of a crash, increasing risk of injury to the driver. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control module with updated software to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011. The Hyundai recall number is 100.

Front Passenger Air Bag May Deploy Unnecessarily

An electrical connector for the passenger front seat weight sensor is located under the center console. This connector can become contaminated, which could cause the passenger front air bag to deploy unnecessarily in the event of a crash. An unintended air bag deployment increases the risk of injury for an occupant in the front passenger seat. Dealers will install a protective cover over the affected connector to prevent contamination. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011. The Hyundai recall number is 099.

I have only recently had to replace the front brake pads, and I have more than 105,000 miles on this car. It has...
This Elantra gets great gas mileage and that is even without babying the accelerator. Since day one I have only had to changes the oil and filters. Car cruises at highway speed with little effort. It is a great car in the City or on the road. I also had a 2000 Elantra and passed it onto a relative, which still running good. I'm glad to have another one. Very reliable and inexpensive !!!
