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

problem #1

Jun 062009


  • 66 miles


2006 Hyundai Accent right rear caliper on 6/6/2009 brake locked up new brakes and pad put on at midas winterhaven, fl with the manager advising that brake pads disintegrated and manufacturing defect suggested I contact Hyundai which I did. On 10/192009 right rear brake makes grinding noise I took the vehicle home on 10/20/2009 I take to midas tampa, fl they advise brakes into the rotors and the caliper is facing upward needs replaced and is manufacturing failure and to contact Hyundai and when I did call I was placed on hold for 20 minutes so I ended call. I contacted dealership butler Hyundai and service manager states it happens. My concern is this car 66,000 some odd miles the first time the brake locked up. This is a safety concern because the car is only 2006 and has sat idle while at work a minimum of 40 hs a week and most of the miles are highway miles not stopping and starting. This caliper is essential for safety of the road. Please review for recall on the item of Hyundai.
