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.

2003 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 092005

Accent 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

My 2003 hyundia Accent already had two failures of the emiision control system. The second failure only showed a check engine light for a few seconds then showed all systems normal agian. Each failure was found by different dealership but the same problem. The first time this happened the computer kept the check engine light on until the dealership repaired it but the second time the check engine light was on only for a few seconds, almost like the car was prgrammed to ignore the problem.
