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.

2002 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #1

Accent 4-cyl

While I have felt that I have been leading up to the problem that I am about to list for over a year with whining in the front left tire/brake area. I am getting ready for my fourth brakes on my Accent in the past 18 months. Finally in may of this year (2013) I started noticing that when I would press in the clutch the car would slow as if the brakes were being pressed. We took the car to our shop and they replaced the wheel bearing and brakes, brake lines, master cylinder, or as the mechanic says:, "we have replaced everything that we know to replace or repair for this problem". well today, 08/15/2013 I managed to get my car to the mechanic for the same problem. This car has never been wrecked, I am the second owner, my sister-in-law and her husband were the original owners. This car was purchased in indianapolis off of the lot by them.
