2009 Hyundai ELANTRA Air Bags Side Window Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID756029

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI was driving a new hyundai elantra and the front end of the vehicle started to veer back and forth. I was waiting for the abs to do what it was designed to do , it then pulled sharply to the right over an embankment and rolled over twice. My head hit the roof twice my neck and back were twisted, my left arm and shoulder were twisted and knees hit the dash i believe. When the car came to a stop there was glass everywhere including all over me. This car was equipped with front and side airbags and side air bag curtains. None of these safety devices were activated. My granddaughter and great grandson would have been in this car twenty minutes later, my granddaughter would not have survived this accident. The passenger side window was completely gone, shattered inside the car. I have asked hyundai of america to retrieve this vehicle to find out why none of these devices activated. This car was a total loss. I had just purchased it on october 27, 2009. Two weeks before this accident i was attempting to enter traffic, i was completely stopped, my foot on the brake. The car started to slowly move into the oncoming traffic no matter how hard i pressed on the brake. The road i was on was flat so it was not sliding. It should have been at a complete standstill. This car has very dangerous defects. It must be recalled and analyzed, or many people will be seriously injured or killed by these cars. Thank you
