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.

Driving 75 mph on the highway, the driver's visor fell into my line of sight, I wasn't using the visor as it was dark making it very hard to see. It's electric so it didn't fall all the way just into my line of vision. I had to hold it in place and move to the side of the road to safely attempt to fix it.

As I was driving, the driver side visor dislodged from its swivel point obstructing my view and distracted me from driving. Months later, the passenger side has done the same thing. Both now just hang from the wire connecting it to the lighting component. Very dangerous and scary!

While driving in the city my driver's side sun visor fell down right in front of my field of vision. It had to be removed because it would not stay up anymore.

A few months ago the visor in my 2010 Hyundai Accent on the driver side stopped staying up. I have read multiple complaints on this indicating many are having this problem.

The sun visor broke on the driver's side and dangled by a connecting wire obstructing my view. The lip on the on post that holds it in place broke off and can not be fixed. This was very dangerous and I had to remove the visor from the car.

My wife and I both own 2010 Hyundai Accents, and the visors on both have broken and make visibility while driving very limited. I've tried various methods of keeping it up, but it continues to fall down while I'm driving. The plastic parts that make it swivel up and down, and rotate from the front to the side window break very easily. I decided to file this complaint after reading several other similar experiences online. These parts should be recalled and replaced with something that at least functions the way it should. It's not safe.

The visor on the driver side broke and just hangs there. The brakes now on three different occasions have failed to stop the car at slow speeds. When the brake is pressed it feels as though they are crumbling. And the car jerks around. Has been brought back to the dealership twice to be told that its just what anti lock brakes do. I have never had that happen on any other car I have owned with antilock brakes. I will never own another Hyundai again, nor will I ever buy anything from that dealership.
