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

problem #1

Accent 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The car is a 2005 Hyundai Accent 4-door. While driving after having warmed the car up for approx 5 minutes (the outside temperature was approx. 5 degrees Fahrenheit), the rear window completely shattered, from top to bottom, side to side. No foreign object struck the window prior to it shattering. The shattered glass, then, as bumps were hit, began to fall into the car and would have struck any rear seat passengers, had there been any. This was obviously due to a manufacturing defect in the window, although Hyundai service refused to replace the window. My own research on this topic revealed that this is not by any means an isolated incident.
