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

Mar 162010

Accent GS 1.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 14,765 miles


So got the clutch fixed and not even weeks later the engine starts shuddering when I start up and while I'm idling sometimes to the point where it stalls out a super long story short took it to the dealer they first replaced two ignition coils cause those were bad.....then they reprogrammed the ECU and then finally they called in an Engineer from Hyundai to completely tear apart my engine and rebuild turns out it was building up excess carbon on the valve train and it through the timing off.....they at least let me drive a 2011 sonata for a week...that car was beautiful
