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.

Accent 4-cyl

I was washing my 2012 Accent in may of 2013 and I noticed what I thought to be dirt above the hatchback window. Upon further inspection I noticed that it was a rust spot coming up from under the paint and clear coat. There was only a spot about the size of a number two pencil point. As of today( 4-13-14) there are five spots of rust coming up all of various size and now I found one on my driver side door. Has anyone else reported rust coming from under the paint ? which to me means the recycled metal when smelted did not remove the rust during the process.
