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.

"airbag" indicator came on when vehicle was started up and didn't go out. Has been on for 3 months. This 2006 Accent that has thrown the B1448 code (oc sensor mat defect). A recall for the Hyundai sonata (NHTSA campaign id number: 08V161000) which uses the same components in it's airbag sensory system has been issued for same code. Similar complaints have been reported for the Accent on this site and arfc.org. Repairs or replacement of the sensor range from $800 - $1100. Not issuing a recall for all vehicles using the same faulty components as the recalled sonata is completely immoral. Recall should be issued.

While driving on the interstate in perfect weather the car suddenly fishtailed and then flipped three times. The driver was thankfully uninjured but the airbags never deployed. In inspecting the car the rear wheels would not move so it was ruled that the brakes seized up. The brakes were not being used when this happened suddenly and out of the blue.

On January 17th my daughter was involved in an accident on interstate 5. she was driving her 2005 Hyundai 4 door Accent in the rain when a Ford Explorer merging onto the highway spun out in circles colliding first with another car then hit the Accent approximately over the front lft. Headlight. The top of left front wheel was pushed inward, the grill and hood were pushed into windshield, windshield broken, front left roof support, center dash pushed in and parts of dash broken in glove box area, rear seats squished together in the shape of a "w". question is why..... didn't either airbag deploy"?????? have other cases been reported with Hyundai? insurance investigator said they could not determine the cause of failure because the cars electrical system was knocked out completely" have photos if required.
