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 #3

Mar 172012


  • 1,000 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Hyundai Accent SE. The contact stated that while traveling 50 mph, he drove into a pothole which caused the passenger front tire to blow. The vehicle did not come equipped with a spare tire but rather a tire sealant. The hole was too large for the sealant to be effective, leaving the contact stranded. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The failure and current mileages were 1,000.

Accent 4-cyl

  • 52 miles
I purchased a 2012 Hyundai Accent 5 door 03/02/21012 and discovered after the purchase there was no spare tire just a repair kit. I was not told before the purchase. Who would even think that a spare was not included. This is a safety issue especially if you are on the side of the road in the dark and it's inclement weather. The tire kit instructions are hard to understand. I contacted Hyundai and my secretary of state to complain about the safety issue. Hyundai's explanation was it was for better mileage and the dealer told me that Hyundai now makes a spare for the 2012 elantra for a price and the spare for the Accent is in process, once again for a price. It will be an option. I have also contacted my aaa because if I get a flat they will have to use the kit or tow me, for a price, to the nearest dealer. Better mileage is great but so isn't safety.
