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

My driver side sun visor rotation support snapped upon rotating it's closed position to it's forward position towards the windshield. It appears to have been made of plastic. It now hangs freely downward blocking my view completely. Turning it's position to the left towards the driver side window helps my forward view, but blocks my left side view completely unless I hunch down. There is no neutral position to move this visor to until I can get it fixed, which is causing a serious driving hazard. Even a simple metal clip to lock the visor in place temporarily would have been tremendously helpful.

Driver's side sun visor will not stay up on 2006 Hyundai Accent. Sun visor will fall while driving and will block visibility.

Drivers side visor does not stay up. It seems to have broken, and also the visor light does not work. $175 to replace - not repaired, too expensive. I now extend the plastic flap and place that on top of the mirror to hold it up. Very annoying and needs to be a recall by Hyundai.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent and the sun visor on the drivers side is not staying up. It falls while I am driving and there doesn't seem to be an effective solution. I researched this topic and discovered that other Hyundai vehicles from 2006 and 2007 are having similar issues. I contacted Hyundai and was told I'd have to pay $175 for a new visor and that this is not covered by warranty. I bought this car brand new and have had it less than four years. This is unacceptable.
