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.

2008 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 062008


  • 10,500 miles


While driving down the highway my driver side mirror started to vibrate and then disconnected from my car. Luckily the power mirror cord stopped the unit from falling on the highway and I was able to pull off the highway and secure the mirror. The auto is a 2008 Hyundai Accent with only 10,500 miles on it. The mirror looked like it had defective internal parts. I took the car to a local Hyundai dealership and the service manager inspected the mirror and could find no reason for the malfunction other than the interior parts simply broke. He inspected the mirror for a long time and could find no external damage and didn't believe the unit was mishandled. He told me he would order me a new part and file a report so that the repairs would be covered under my warranty. Hyundai has denied my warranty claim even after the service manager found no wrong doing on my part. Hyundai has denied my warranty claim without looking at the mirror or listening to the service manager.
