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

Accent 4-cyl

I was on a side street, thank god. On my way to the highway when I heard a horrible scratching, metal crunching noise. I had a hard time steering when I pulled into a parking lot my car just stopped. I looked, and my tire was sideways, the right lower control arm rotted and broke, the axle came out of the transmission. I spoke to Hyundai and there is nothing they can do. I recently lost my job and would like to be reimbursed for this. If I would have been on the highway I could have been killed and caused a huge accident, due to not being able to turn my wheel. I want to know what can be done about this please. There was a recall due to this same exact reason and it is a huge safety issue.
