Takata recall" 4. the airbag light will not go off. Atlanta police stated I not drive the car and to report it. My family lives could be in danger. No mechanic wanted to touch it. I would very much like to this these items repaired, especially the airbag signal/light. I don't know if it will go off or not but I need this done before anything else. I will upload the picture via email. System issues. I purchased a used 2009 Genesis sedan in September of 2015. We have noticed that several unusual issues have surfaced since the purchase. I was never notified of any of the recalls or potential issues below. 1. the console for the seater heaters are melted or got overheated and is damaged. 2. when the brakes need updated they are very dry (per the repairman) recall - 114. 3. window shield wiper seems to have a defect.

Windshield wipers quit working, did some research online, come to find out that the wipers not working is a common problem on all 2009-2012 Genesis. Hyundai has not come out with a recall nor a service bulletin knowing this is a safety issue and the vehivle is inoperable in bad weather conditions.
