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

I have a 2006 manual transmission Hyundai Accent (gls 4 dr 5 speed) with 36,000 miles. On a trip to Vermont, I was driving up rt 7 mountains and accelerating uphill when my manual transmission jumped out of gear, revved up - I was in either third or fourth gear and put it back into gear - this happen around 6-8 time while going up hill and accelerating. After climbing the mountain, things were ok but on a low grade hill it happened a few more times and then once on a flat surface. This was about 10 days ago. Since then, I am back home in syracuse, NY and it has not repeated itself but I have not had the opportunity to duplicate the steep Accent with acceleration. I took this in to my Hyundai dealer and of course they could not duplicate it - they indicated that they never heard of this before and bring it back if it recurs. I asked about computer readouts and they indicated it wouldn't show up. I did a google search and only found an article on problem with the pulse generator - I did this search after bringing it home from the dealer ( have you heard of this before?
