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.

2012 Hyundai Accent Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 202012

Accent 4-cyl

  • 8,000 miles


Takata recall. My wife was sideswiped by a hit and run driver and ran off the road onto a rough vacant field. Airbag failed to deploy and she hit her head on the steering wheel and suffered a skull fracture. Two weeks after the accident she started having memory problems and has suffered 5 strokes and a ct scan shows brain damage. This has gone on since April of 2012 and the car was just a few months old with approximately 8,000 miles on the car. It did about $ $8000 dollars in damage which was never repaired right until alfa insurance company in Alabama sent us to the best body man around and he replaced the entire front end of the outer panels and all of the underside supports and matched the paint perfect. I expect my wife to either be in a nursing home or more strokes may kill her. I don't have the accident report since it's been almost 4 years since the accident. The Hyundai Accent is a death trap in my opinion and should not be on our United States roads at all. That car will kill you in the slightest accident and my wife is turning into a vegetable before my eyes.thank you, [xxx]. she did have a witness that was installing cable tv lines on a power pole she almost hit. We did file a lawsuit against and the attorney settled for about $10,000 and he sold us out. She can't have nursing care for that amount.
