2011 Hyundai Genesis Sedan

2011 Hyundai Genesis Sedan
Automakers have been striving hard to manufacture luxury segments into finer slices for generations. Territory that are once owned by Mercury, Buick and Oldsmobile is now being used by brands like Acura to Infiniti. Due to these new comers, buyers can still plant their derrières on supple leather thrones without having to sell the family farm in the process.

Three years ago, Hyundai introduced the Genesis Sedan which was intended to prove that the Korean automaker wouldn't have the burden of launching a separate dedicated luxury brand. All were impressed with the big Hyundai when it it was introduced three years ago in 2009, but domestic automakers like Buick and Chrysler have since sharpened their game in a big way. We were interested to find out how the vehicle's first generation has held up before second one arrives as a 2012 model.

Hyundai Elantra faces airbag issues

Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai has issued two airbag recalls on nearly 300,000 Elantra models. The first recall involves 188,697 vehicles sold between 2007 to 2009. The Elantra's front passenger seat contains a sensor that measures the passenger's weight, but in certain affected vehicles, the sensor may not work properly. During a crash, the airbag can deploy even if a child is sitting in the front seat. Hyundai says that the sensors could be damaged by moisture and hence to add a protective sleeve around the device, the automaker has recalled the vehicle.

The second recall involves 95,783 Elantra models sold between 2007-2008. This issue is due to a sensor used in the two-stage deployment of the passenger-side airbag. In the event of a crash only the low pressure stage will deploy and in the affected models, electronic noise may confuse the sensor, and the sensor may revert to its default mode, which will cause both stages of the airbag to deploy. To fix this issue, a Hyundai technician will reprogram the airbag control module.
