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.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the rear brake lights failed to illuminate when the brake pedal was depressed. The manufacturer was notified of the issue and informed the contact that his VIN was not included in any recalls, including NHTSA campaign id number: 09V122000 (service brakes, hydraulic:switches:brake light) which aimed to remedy the same failure the contact had experienced. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 43,000.

Stop lamp switch malfunction. Apparently this is/was a problem on many Hyundai cars from 2007 because they issued a recall on over half a million cars. My specific car (VIN number) was not included; however my stop lamp switch did malfunction. I feel like I should have been part of that recall.

Gentleman pulls up beside me at a stoplight and says, I don't have any brake lights. I check them and sure enough, no brake lights. I called Hyundai and they say my VIN does not have any recalls. I did see a recall on 2007 Accents online. Want to know why mine isn't on the list. I'm sure they must be using the same parts. I'd like to know how something like this can go bad like the others did and not be recalled.

Hello, I own a 2007 Hyundai Accent and I happened to be driving on the queensway and a lady pulled up beside me and told me that I had no rear brake lights. I brought my car back home and I conducted a search to see if there were any recalls for my vehicle with the issue that I am having. There was indeed a recall about the rear brake lamp switch. I contacted my local Hyundai dealer and they said that yes there was a recall. I brought my vehicle into the dealer the next day to find out that my car was not covered under the recall and the switch that I need was on back order because of the recall. I was very upset because my vehicle was not safe to drive and the dealer was not going to cover the issue or nor was the part even available. I contacted Hyundai Canada and I explained the issue to them and they said that I was out of luck because the part was on back order and it would be a couple of months before the part would be available. I asked if they would be willing to cover a rental because it was a unsafe to drive and they said "no" that I would have to find my own way. I feel that this issue should be made aware so that issues like mine could be deal with differently. I feel that Hyundai Canada could have provided me with some sort of help other then your out of luck. I rely on my car on a daily bases and I could not afford to pay over $1000 per month to have a rental car. Thank you!
