It's definitely a safety issue. Hyundai designed the latch wrong. They need to recall and replace all the Tucson latches. I took mine out and I know enough to figure out how it works. Most cars have a cable or metal linkage that physically opens the latch. This one, besides being mostly crappy plastic, doesn't work like that. It has a very weak spring that unlatches the door. The door handles simply release the latch so the spring can open it. So.... if you crash your car and there is any pressure on that latch, the door won't open. Hopefully you don't need to get out. Like if you're injured or if there's a fire.I have had the same issue with first the rear drivers side door (under warranty) and now 4 months later the rear passenger door (no longer under warranty). I do not believe this is normal wear and tear and there needs to be a recall. It is a safety issue that I cannot get to my back seat and child through both doors. I also do not want this happening to my front doors and be out the money yet again.
