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.

Called Hyundai. No aftermarket parts. Service knew immediately the problem. Fuel filler filter and charcoal canister. parts $305.00 plus tax. Need to replace all hoses. $61.00 plus tax. Est. labor $80.00. Seems to be an inherent known problem and Hyundai is doing nothing about it. Literally take 10-12 minutes to burp 8 gallons of gas into the car. When I replaced the lead hose only, it was full of charcoal pellets. I sucked pellets out of canisters as well as I could with a shop vac. Replace the hose and it filled 9 gallons in less then 1 minute. Now, 1 week later, back to the same ole b.s.

This car trouble made me angry.This was my sons first car that we bought used.Thinking the fuel gauge was broke we assumed that when the pump clicked off the tank was full.We would have never guessed the gas wasn't going into the tank. Imagine not being able to put more than $3.00 of gas in your car and driving 20 miles to run out of gas.Learned a lesson the hard way and a few thousand dollars...Always check into the car you are purchasing first there is a world of info on line.We replaced the fuel pump and a a new part on the tank,but a full tank of gas is still hard to get in and very messy.Hoping it was only a build up of air in there we will see on next fill up.

CarRx started with the simple solution, flushed fuel lines, replaced minor parts,moved to the canister, and finally broke something on the gas tank. They glued it back with gorilla glue without telling me. After $700 in repairs, told me it would take an additional $600 to fix the problem. I took it to another mechanic who found the gorilla glue repair, fixed it all. I took it back to CarRx and complained that they broke it and tried to charge me for the repair. They gave me $700 of (substandard) repairs on another vehicle.
