Investigation of Hyundai Elantra prompted by complaint

Posted under automotive defect attorneys

A complaint was filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding a potential defect with the 2012 Hyundai Elantra.

A man wrote the administration and described an event in which the driver’s side airbag improperly deployed in an accident. According to the report, the deploying airbag dislodged a piece of metal from the interior of the vehicle, which then sliced his ear. He said it could have easily cut his throat instead of his ear if he had been sitting slightly differently in his seat.

This claim has urged U.S. regulators to begin an investigation of the 2012 Elantra. One other complaint has been made about this model, but no other injuries were reported. If the investigation finds a defect inherent in the vehicle model, a recall could be instituted.
