Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 192012

Accent 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 99,900 miles


I must admit to some consternation regarding the Hyundai Accent timing belt..having to replace (thank God, under warranty) at 52,998 miles, mechanic at Hyundai Dealership said it would be good for 50K. Well, didn't make it, and now car is in shop, and I might have to have a new engine?? Guess I kinda thought that a foreign-made vehicle would be a better purchase in 2001, as the American made cars were not doing well with customer satisfaction.

I have been very faithful in the maintenance of this car, with oil changes evey 3K miles as ex-husband warned me to do faithfully (or the world would come to an end) lol, and have all maintenance and gasoline records for this car which have been kept since I drove the car off the lot. No accidents with this car, and had hoped to get at least 150K miles out of it, but alas, I kinda don't think that will be the case. Will be difficult on a retirement income to purchase a new vehicle.
