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.

The heater fan in the car would only work on high speed. It was a continual occurrence, therefore it was difficult to control the interior heat and defroster. It was repaired by replacing the speed control switch. The mechanic showed me what had failed on the switch were two receptacles where the metal was should have been solid but had gotten so hot that it had melted and there was no longer a connection. I felt compelled to report this as it concerned me that it may cause a fire.

I purchased the car back in 2003 from a dealership up in New York city. Hyundai of manhattan, I was experiencing problem. With the car. Then first in was with the wiring harness.that affect the transmission, and then with the car blowing oxygen sensors, and then with the manifold systems the problems ware taken care of then I have moved to raleigh, North Carolina. From nyc back in 9/2006, then I started having problems with the wiring harness, again. And the transmission failed and needed to be replaced back in 11/2007. That problem was taken care of I have been going to Hyundai of southern state imports of raleigh. For the past couple of years since I have been here and they are very familiar with my car the car was under warranty back then. Until I reached 71,226 miles the cars warranty 60,000 miles to 100,000 bumper to bumper. To make a long story short they waited until my warranty expired to tell me that my care would need a.1, wiring assy engine total price of $930.53, 2, cover assyrocker 299,72. The point I am trying to get at is they knew along that those components needed to be replaced a long time ago but they waited until my warranty was up to pass the buck on to the consumer. Instead of being responsible and of integrity Hyundai motors of America needs to be investigated, concerning there warranty concerning there customers I am outraged concerning this matter.how would you feel if it was you the economy is stalled and this couldn't have happened at a more awkward time then now. I am afraid of this car and would like to get rid of it but I owe 8,000 more on the car and I am making my payment inspite of the economy. I feel raped and abused. By this please help me before it is to late.
