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.

2006 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

The driver and passenger sun visors on the 2006 Accent will no longer stay in the upright position. The visors now hang loosely and limit visibility when driving, the swinging back and forth while accelerating and braking can be distracting and is unsafe. I have looked to purchase the original oem parts to replace, but have discovered that Hyundai no longer uses the original parts and that new visors was manufactured. I have found similar complaints for multiple Hyundai models on this site and on arfc.org. It appears that Hyundai recognized a faulty part that leads to limited visibility and distraction while driving but did not issue a recall. A recall should be issued.

Driving during normal conditions at 45 mph, for no reason the drivers side sun visor dropped down and impaired my vision. I pulled over to the side of the road and try to return it to its normal position with no success. I have tried velcro and tape but it will not stay up. It is serious driving hazard, and judging by forums on the internet, many, many people are affected by it. Hyundai should do a recall and have the issue fixed.

Driver's side visor would not go up for a year and hung down, affecting my visibility and was a huge risk when driving. Due to the visor hanging down, it eventually became weak on the left corner and was hanging by the electrical cords (for the light) and fell off completely. Now I do not have a visor at all and it affects my driving immensely as I have nothing to keep the sun out of my eyes. I have contacted Hyundai several times about this issue and they claim to know nothing about it, but I know four other Hyundai owners who this has also happened to.

Driver's side visor breaks off attachment- hangs from ceiling unless locked into place-useless and potential hazard. Lamp connected to opening the mirror cover does not work. Had it replaced at the beginning of the year following breaking. Last month- right side visor breaks in the same fashion and once again, does not stay unless locked into place, a potential hazard, useless and the lamp that is supposed to turn on when the mirror cover is opened does not work again. Many people have had the same issues. Needs to be recalled, this is apparently a defect of the parts.
