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

Accent 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My son was driving a 2003 Hyundai Accent that was involved in a frontal crash with a full size pick-up truck. During the crash the seat belt broke and he was thrown into the passenger door resulting in injury. Hyundai's investigator check the car and said the seat belts had been cut by ems. We checked with ems and they said it is their policy not to cut seat belts. They also said nobody cut our seat belt. This was a new car with approximately 2,500 miles at the time of the crash.
