Hyundai Elantra 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.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

Hyundai Elantra Recalls
Hyundai found that a support bracket for the headliner could come loose when the side curtain airbags are deployed. In the event the side airbag is deployed, the bracket could come loose and cause injury to the occupants. Dealers will apply adhesive strips to the headliner to correct this concern.
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.
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.

I've never had this problem with any other car so am wondering if this is a defect or just...
