Thanks Karen for setting this up, I am new to this site.
I just purchased a 2001 Elantra GLS with 110,000 miles, runs well, didn't know anything about Hyundais until my boyfriend and I went looking for another car( my other one was in an accident). So far we are enjoying it, need to get a manual, do I just go to the dealer or what? Just yesterday the airbag light came on we changed the fuses, but the one with the 10amp is still lighting up. Anyone can give us some help and advice much appreciated.
look forward to hearing from all

Thank you KarenS for setting up this new owners' message post, since this is my first time purchasing a Hyundai, thanks to my boyfriend we are enjoying the car 2001, elantra GLS Pewter.
right now my interest is in the air bag fuse light that came on. looking at new tires, we had the car balance and aligned but around 65miles the wheel vibrates, any suggestion. Much thanks

I just got my Hyundai 2005 a couple of weeks ago. If you call Hyundais 800 number believe me they can help you. They have a wonderful customer service and probably will be able to get you the owners manual and be able to answer your question about the airbag light.
I hope this works for you.

You should get that airbag light checked by a professional immediately--it could mean that there's a problem with the SRS (airbag system), making one or more airbags inoperative.

I agree. My son bought a used Cutlass last year that had a salvage title. At the time, I had a mild curiosity about whether the air bags were fully intact and functional. A little over a month ago, I found out they were, thank goodness:
He ended up with a bruised knee. It would have been much worse without the air bags. You really need to make sure the bags are working.

I am 45 yrs old,My daughter is 22 yrs old,I have never had a drivers licence,nor had my daughter.She will be teaching school this fall,2007,and will be going to different schools in our city,she asked me to take the drivers ed course in our city with her,I reluctently agreed,we both passed and got our licences,we purchased a 2002 Elantra with 49000 km on it,I swear an old nun used it to go back and forth to church,I love this car,we test drove many vehicles,some good,but out of our price range,some crap!
I thought Hyundai made crap cars but......boy was I wrong,90 percent of the reviews i read online were4 or 5 stars out of 5,it handles so very well,it has all the gadgets one needs!!....I wish I had done this 25 years ago,
I GUESS I AM NOW IN THE "CLUB".... is there a secret handshake i should know?

I am glad that you love your car. I was hesitant to buy one also. They do run great. If you are the 2nd owner do you still have part of the warranty left?
Anyway congrats on your purchase and use it well.
