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 #1

May 262005

Accent 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 10,020 miles


1) driving on a hilly, twisty road. While approaching a downhill turn in the road, the check engine light came on, the tach dropped to "0" and the car shut off. Since the engine was no longer running, I lost my power steering and power brakes suddenly. I lost control of the car and went off the road, crashing into a guardrail. 2) damaged parts: Front bumper, headlight assembly, corner light assembly, rf fender, hood, upper radiator core support. Possibly inner fender also? air bags did not go off, and I was not injured. I was able to restart the car, and the check engine light went out after about 10-15 seconds. I have been able to operate the car normally ever since. I contacted Hyundai and am waiting for resolution and repairs. 3) nothing has been done yet.
