Crash testing results
I hear that there are no insurance crash test figures out yet. Can someone check?
Safety features failed
Hello, My sister was recently in a MVA where another driver ran a red light and t-boned her Elantra at 40mph. The airbags did not deploy. The seatbelts broke upon impact. Has this happened to anyone else? Should we contact Hyundai? I have researched and "side impact collision" air bags were supposed to deploy that is the purpose of the vehicle having them. There are no recalls on the vehicle that we are aware of. 1 owner. Bought new.
