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.

The contact owns a 2008 Hyundai Accent gl. While driving 65 mph the entire front end was shaking excessively. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the rack and pinion steering shaft, two front rims, tires and a power steering pump. After the vehicle was repaired the front end continued to shake. The manufacturer was contacted and informed him to take the vehicle back to the dealer to be repaired. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 43,000.

I own a 2008 Hyundai Accent, and it has about 30,000 miles on it. I've had it in the shop twice this month the first time for the coils and the second for a miss fire. This is getting to be ridiculous, I just got it out the shop 2 days ago and now the steering is off, really bad. It was so bad I could barely keep it on the road. Now I'll be taking this car back to the dealership again for the third time in one month.
