2008 Hyundai Elantra Recalls

In the event of a crash, the driver's front air bag may deploy at a higher pressure than necessary. Deployment at a pressure higher that expected increases the risk of injury to the driver.
In the event of a crash, the front passenger air bag could deploy unnecessarily. This unintended deployment could increase the risk of injury to a front passenger seat occupant.
The fuel pump delivers fuel to the engine. On some vehicles sent to Puerto Rico, there may be an electrical issue with the pump, which may keep the pump from providing enough fuel to the engine. This can cause poor engine starting and power issues.
The engine may be hard to start or hesitate on acceleration. Engine hesitation or other performance issues may increase the risk of a crash.
