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.

The brake/stop lamp switch has failed again. The switch was replaced in 2009 under the first recall issued for this problem. Another recall occurred in April of 2013, for select 2006 Hyundai Accents. Mine was not covered in this second recall. The switch has failed again and I believe this should have been included in the second recall.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent. The brake light switch has gone out on my vehicle. This is actually the 2nd time this has happened. It went out the first time in the 2007 or 2008 time frame. I had it replace under warranty. About a week ago the brake light switch went out again. When I went onto pepboys website and put my car information in the alert of a brake light switch recall came up. I contact Hyundai to see if my car would qualify for the recall since my switch has failed and is a 2006 model. They claim my car does not meet the recall list. I told them that my switch has already fail and they said they can't do anything about. I feel that they put a bad switch on my car and that the recall should have covered my car. I have had 2 switch fail on that car and the second was put in during the time of the recall covered but they still refuse to cover. My car is unsafe right now until I have it fixed and Hyundai claims that the problem part is not there problem.
