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

problem #1

Jun 192011


  • 49,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 hyundia Accent. While driving approximately 35 mph, the transmission slipped out of fourth gear into neutral without intent. The contact was able to continue driving. The failure occurred when driving in the fourth or fifth gear; however to prevent the malfunction the gear selector lever must be manually held while driving. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on twice and they were unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and did not provide any assistance. The approximate failure mileage was 49,000.
