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.

2010 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 107,000 miles


Driving down the highway 49, started to take an exit into town. The car wouldn't slow down, tapped the brake, but the RPM kept revving up. I placed my foot on the brake but the car wouldn't slow. I came off the off ramp at 60 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour street. Continued pressing on the brake, when I attempted to lift my foot the car would go faster. Knew I couldn't make it through the stop light was able to turn onto a side street shifted the car into park and turned the car off.
