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.

2005 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

I began having trouble taking my car out of the park position when I pushed the brake and one day I couldn't get it to come out at all. I called my local dealership and explained the problem and took it in to be check. They told me that it was a sensor that was bad and they needed to replace it and they also informed me that I didn't have any brake lights whenever I pushed them while driving. I was having trouble for about a month leading up to the day I couldn't get it out of park. I was able to used the shift lock override to force it out, but I still didn't have brake lights. It was fixed for about $150 including parts & labor. This was very scary though because I could have easily been rear ended since drives behind me didn't know I was braking.
