Q: airbag light on on 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I was told that the r/f buckle needs to be replaced. Cost would be $400. Is this a fair price?

Did you check at the dealership? Did they verify there is no warranty coverage on it? Often times safety items like buckles have warranty beyond the bumper-to-bumper period. Worth investigating further.
The $400 was the quote from the dealership after they told me that it wasn't covered by warranty.
OK, I suppose that is why.

$400 seems a little high. Did that quote include their diagnosis charge? My opinion would be that you should shop another Hyundai dealer in your area. You could even shop an independent shop. They can help you too. Try the Directory at the top of the screen - to find a shop near you.
There was a recent recall on this - and it's a problem with the seatbelt switch. If you've already paid for this repair, you should be able to go to provide proof (I know, 5 years later...) and get at least partially reimbursed for the repair.
