Known Problems

If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

The airbag warning light may illuminate due to an internal fault with the driver's side airbag. Hyundai has issued a recall for this concern. The recall applies to 1994 & 1995 models only.
