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

Aug 132009


  • 8,000 miles


The spoiler(ft bumper) totally ripped off my vehicle while driving 70 mph on the highway. I ran over it and then retrieved it. The rivets came right out of vehicle. The tires did not fail but the next day the warning light came on. I contacted Hyundai dealership they stated they wanted me to file an accident report. But I didn't have an accident the equipment is faulty the method in which its attached to the main frame. Aluminum rivets and glue. The vibration of the road and the airflow coming up underneath made the spoiler rip off. I didn't have anything to do with it coming off. Very dangerous and safety issues if the tires busted the car would have flipped many times and I would have been seriously injured or dead. Updated IVOQ 09/10/09.
