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.

2009 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

My back seats were folded down. Before I went to work with the car off and at rest, I went to fold them up, grabbing the small hole that holds the latch that attaches to the back. My right index finger slid across the apparently sharp, uncovered metal edge of this hole. The top couple millimeters of the tip of my finger were sliced off by this metal edge. I had to go to the doctor. I needed a tetanus shot. It was a judgment call whether I needed stitches or not but the doctor gave me sutures. I may lose this part of my finger - we will see.

The contact owns a 2009 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated they were raising the rear seats and her finger was sliced off. The contact stated the compartment you pull the seats back into place was very sharp. The contact had the tip of the middle finger on her right hand sliced off. The contact stated the failure was a safety issue because the latch was very sharp. The failure and current mileage was 33,000.
