Certain vehicles equipped with Active Body Control have sensors on the front struts. Due to variations in the supplier’s soldering process, soldering points on the AZ-sensors boards may not be within tolerances, and signals from the affected sensors may not be accurately transmitted. A variation can result in an uneven front suspension. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected sensors.

2008 Hyundai Elantra
Vehicles affected: 8,498
On certain vehicles, the fuel pump motor may not have the proper and uniform electrical surface contact. This may cause the pump to produce less pressure than required to supply the fuel injection system, which could result in poor engine starting and performance. Dealers will replace the fuel pump sub-assembly.

On certain vehicles, the front passenger seat occupant detection mat can fatigue during usage, depending on the seat configuration, vehicle geometry, and manner and frequency of the passenger’s entry and exit. Over time, micro-cracks could develop in the sides of the mat, which could lead to a break of the conductive path. The system will recognize a failure and the front passenger airbag will be deactivated. The airbag “On/Off” lamp will illuminate to make occupants aware of the deactivation. Affected models will receive an extended warranty of 10 years; under the extended warranty program, an occupant detection mat that experiences this specific issue will be replaced at no charge to the customer.
