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

Jun 212013

Accent 4-cyl

Power control for the passenger window very erratic. When lowered, the control will not raise the passenger side window until the switch has cooled off. Problem recently worked on at local Hyundai dealership; however, fix did not last for 24 hours. Switch will not respond from either the driver's control or the passenger side. Also have the problem with the sun visor that so many others have submitted complaint about. The visor on the driver's side literally fell in my face while I was driving. Currently I have the visor taped up; but, it will still fall down both startling the driver and obstructing the view. This is a safety hazard. The piece is broken and the estimate to repair is ridiculous. I purchased the additional warranty so eventually the window switch problem will be resolved; but, the dealership is telling me I will have to pay for the visor. With the number of complaints over this issue, Hyundai needs to issue a recall and replace the sun visors.
