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

Apr 102004

Accent 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,500 miles


Went on a trip out of the state. I noticed that I wasn't getting my normal mileage. I filled my gas tank when I arrived at my destination and parked; after an hour, I noticed that a river of gasoline was coming from my tank. After being parked two days, I had lost over 2 1/2 gallons of gas, and noted a distinct burning smell coming from my exhaust pipe during my drive home. I am in the process of arranging for an appointment with my dealer in order to have the gas tank replaced or repaired.
