According to an owner of a 2012 Hyundai Elantra, the airbag system may be defective.
A complaint was filed by this owner after the driver’s side airbag deployed in an accident, injuring him. The airbag caused a piece of sharp metal to dislodge from the interior of the vehicle, and it was sharp enough to cut through the man’s ear.
The driver reported the incident because he said that the injury could have been more severe if the metal sliced his neck instead. The actual vehicle in which the airbag deployed has yet to be investigated, but regulators say that they are in the beginning stages of an official investigation.
