"Girard Gibbs and De Bartolomeo LLP" and "Stueve, Siegel, Hanson, Woody LLP"
file for Class Action Status a case Vs. Hyuandai Motor America, Inc.
regarding faulty OCS systems in 2004 and 2005 Hyundai Elantras.
Questions regarding this case should be directed to Norm Siegel
Why should one feel bad about one's loved one's when the problem is
that the government shysters forced a second rate system (airbags)
onto the public when a much better answer (5 way seat harness) on to
the public? On the other hand I do feel bad about the unelected
shyters scamming the elected one's all at the expense of the general
public. It is especially galling when the issue is the workings of an
automatic system that should be a simple dashboard switch that anyone
capable of driving a car should be able to understand.
One thing that I really wonder about is why Hyundai? Are their
sensors different of are they the generic sensor that everyone is
using? Perceived easy target? Or is it that Hyundai is not encumberd
by the high legal bills of the big 3 for shoddy engineering so they
are targeted to drive up their costs? The lawyer site did not
what is all adults are the same weight who are you going to choose to
die in case of an acccident, then they should not charge for air bags
and let you decide if it is worth it to buy a car that does not rely on
its safety issues to prevent an injury, that is why we buy these cars
in the 1st place, for SAFETY!!!!!
Has it occurred to you to go to a branch in person and get some straight
answers? Or if you MUST do this by phone, ask the rep to let you speak
with their supervisor and work your way up the chain until you get some
answers. Really, do you need someone to hold your hand every step of the
Speak for yourself, oh paranoid one!
I buy my cars for TRANSPORTATION.
Anyone who RELIES on passive safety features is a fool. Why is it that
some people freak out and assume that a malfuntioning airbag means
INSTANT DEATH! While it's true that airbags can save lives under SOME
conditions, simply wearing seat belts saves far more lives that airbags
ever will. To listen to some people, you'd wonder how we ever survived
before the advent of airbags.
If you want to be safe, don't drive. Since you don't appear to be the
risk taking type, driving is probably the most dangerous thing you do in
a given day. You'd be better off taking public transportation. If you
really want to be safer when you drive, go to a good driving school and
learn how it's supposed to be done. Knowing the limits of your vehicle
and how to handle difficult situations properly will make you - and your
passengers - FAR safer than any airbag.
I must take issue on the safety point. If the system doesn't activate
because it doesn't sense the front seat passenger, a message is displayed
on the dash which reads "Passenger Air Bag Off." The safety issue occurs
whenever the driver continues to drive with a passenger in that seat with
the message displayed, and then expects that the air bag will deploy in a
collision. That's stupidity.
Convenience and aggravation issue, yes. Safety issue, no.
yeah but when you have an adult who is 110 lbs he or she is big enough
to be detected by the sensor, now where does it say how much weight
can you put in it , so why dont the add a weight scale on a sode step
to determine where you will be seated??? duhhh...
Why don't you use capitalization, punctuation, read and correct what you
type before you post, so people can understand what you're trying to say?
The sensor will sometimes not pick up someone seated in the passenger's
seat, particularly if they're sitting with their legs crossed or their
feet on the dash or if they're reclining. It happens with my girlfriend,
who's 115#. If the light comes on, she readjusts her position in the
seat until it goes off. Problem solved.
