Hyundai Elantra Recalls
The brake pedal mounted switch that turns the brake lights on and off as well as releases the transmission shift lever lock so it may be shifted out of park may stick in the on position. Brake lights may remain illuminated as a result, and the transmission shift lever may be moved from the park position without the brake pedal being depressed. This could lead to a crash.
The second stage of the dual stage driver's frontal air bag may not deploy properly in a crash when needed. This would result in increased risk of injury.
The brakes may apply unexpectedly while driving, which can result in a loss of vehicle control.
In cold weather states where road salt is used during icy conditions, the front coil springs could corrode and break, resulting in possible contact with a tire and loss of vehicle control.
The loss of power steering assist may occur unexpectedly due to an electronic control system unit failure.
On Touring models, the headliner is equipped with a bracket to support it. This bracket may become dislodged in the event of an accident which deploys the side curtain air bags. This would cause risk of occupant injury.
2011-2013 Elantra models are being recalled because side airbag deployment could displace a headliner support bracket, increasing the chances of injury to the occupants.
Over 1,000,000 Hyundai vehicles are being recalled because the stop light switch can fail, resulting in loss of brake light operation and various other electrical concerns.
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.
