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

Feb 222009

Accent 4-cyl

  • 4,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Hyundai Accent. While driving 55 mph in the rain, the windshield wipers loosened and disconnected from the arm. The dealer tightened the wiper nuts and instructed the contact to not use the wipers during heavy rain or snow because they cannot modify the wipers each time they become loose. The contact feels that the wipers are unsafe because they can become loose at any time and cause limited visibility while driving. The current mileage was 34,000 and failure mileage was 4,000. 2/21/10 updated 03/02/10
