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.

problem #3

Accent 4-cyl

  • 40,537 miles


I was traveling home from the store May 3rd 2014 and came into a curve on route 20 between princeton and athens w.V.. the curve was to the right in a low but steep bank at 40 mph and the right front wheel caliper grabbed causing immediate loss of speed and caused momentary loss of control but regained as soon as the caliper released which was in approximately two seconds. Fortunately no oncoming traffic was around or it could have been messy. The wheel was feeling sluggish after the incident and I'm no longer happy with this vehicle, it is to dangerous. The same thing just happened again today May 4th 2014.

I was turning a corner going to work and the front passenger tire popped. I called the roadside assistance to come take care of the vehicle. Only to learn that there was no spare tire, when I specifically asked the salesperson if there was one he stated yes. The car had to be towed to the dealers. The dealer then tells me that I must have hit something because the sidewall of the tire had a hole in it. However, I did not hit anything nor rub a curb. They are not standing behind the warranty of the tires and notified me that the tires on the vehicle are discontinued. I asked why they were discontinued and got the run around.. I asked if defective and no response.
