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.

2004 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 132011

Accent GS 1.6L I4

  • Manual transmission
  • 36,661 miles


When I apply the brake at low speed, the rear right brake makes a grinding noise. Both drum and shoe was already changed 3 months ago. So my mechanic changes the "almost new" brake shoe to a premium quality and he adjusts the shoes correctly but the problem returns few days ago. So my mechanic filed the extremity of the brake shoe along with the shoe itself with a file and the problem disappears. He says that the shoe made friction with the drum.

Accent GT V4

  • Manual transmission
  • 78,000 miles

I need help assessing what this might be without going to a mechanic who will rip me off.

the noise comes as a ticking sound / creaking sound...feels like it is connected to the happens when i brake to a stop.
