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 #2

Jun 122006


  • Manual transmission
  • miles


My 21 yr.old son was driving home at aprox 2:53A.M. lost control of his 2006 hyundi brio and crashes the front left side and later followed though to another wall impacting it sideways. The fontal airbags did not deploy and he later died at hospital of severe abdomial trauma, ribs puncturig both lungs. As a father how can I know if the first impact was strong enough to make the airbags deploy and if there have been recalls for problems concerning airbag deployment failure. The model of the car was Hyundai brio.
