Hyundai Motor Company Australia Pty Ltd — Hyundai Elantra (HD) MY2008-2009
What are the defects?
The driver's airbag inflator may rupture in the event of airbag deployment.
What are the hazards?
If the airbag inflator ruptures during airbag deployment, metal fragments may propel towards the vehicle occupants at high speeds. Additionally, the airbag may under-inflate in a collision and may not protect the driver as intended. This increases the risk of serious injury or death to the vehicle occupants.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should stop driving the vehicle. Hyundai Motor Company Australia will notify affected owners and invite them to take their vehicles to an authorised Hyundai dealership to have the driver airbag module replaced.
