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.

On Thursday Oct. 9. 2014 I went to my car parked in driveway to go to work. I went to turn key heard radio come on then an explosion. I went back into seat left hand forward. I did not know what was going on. I realized airbag was out in steering wheel, did not know if car was on fire, got out called 911. By divine intervention my injury's were minor burn on my arm which was cleaned up at site, my home in driveway, fire report stated noticed minor burns on face, I was not aware, upset and in shock. I went up with tow truck driver to dealership where I purchased car brand new only year old, under 11000 miles on it. I demanded a car to use, I was crying at dealership. Manufacture tried to say it was an insurance problem which it is not, car blew up in my face when I started it. Dealership came thru and has let me use a car for time being. I am trying to deal with manufacture and it is not easy. I do not want car back and I want them to pay it off. They agreed to outside inspector and now I find out I will not be aloud report. So now I demanded that I hire someone and we all go investigate car at same time, they agreed, still a work in progress at this moment in time, I do not know what type airbags they use but I have a right to know exactly what went wrong and for other people. I am lucky to be able to tell this story.

I was hit on the left front quarter panel area so hard the car spun around. The side airbags deployed but not the front ones. I had my seatbelt on however was slammed against the steering wheel and my hands impacted the passenger windshield. I was rendered unconscious and had a temporary lapse of memory. I know have a pinched nerve in my lower left back and severe pain and bruising in breast right should area. I have been told that it could take weeks or months to heal. My daughter bought the car brand new a few months ago and was never advised of any recall/safety issues.

I was in an accident on October 14, 2013 where I struck a deer head on at 50mph and the airbags did not deploy. I wrote to Hyundai and complained, and after their "investigation", they determined that I was not entitled to any assistance. Well, two nights ago, on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, I struck and went under a Ford F150 truck. I was pinned in the vehicle. My airbag did not deploy - again. How am I to feel safe in this vehicle? their "investigation" said that the airbags were in working order and that simply hitting a deer would not make them go off. Well, this time I hit and went under a vehicle and was pinned in my vehicle and they still didn't go off. I am so disappointed in Hyundai. This was my first new car. And it has lasted me 1 1/2 years, not even. I was not cited for the accident as the officer said it was not my fault. My insurance company is considering totaling the vehicle. I am beyond upset. I'm opening another complaint against Hyundai, maybe they will "get it" this time. This is unacceptable!!!!!

On Monday, October 14, 2013 I was traveling East bound on US17 in suffolk, va at approximately 8:30pm at the posted speed limit of 50mph when I struck a full-sized male deer head-on. He came out of nowhere - he was notin the road or my line of vision prior to me striking him. The vehicle came to an abrupt halt, but no airbags deployed. The deer flew into the median, where it died. I immediately contacted the local police and I have an incident report. I then contacted my insurance company and arranged for the vehicle to be repaired. No one can tell me why the airbags did not deploy. I have pictures from all sides of the vehicle detailing the damage. I would think that a head-on collision at 50mph would warrant an airbag deployment. I no longer feel safe in this vehicle, and am now afraid to drive at night. I have filed a complaint with Hyundai directly, and they have sent me a laundry list of items that they wanted me to provide to them. Per my phone call with them this morning, that information was received on 11/04/13. On 11/24/13, the "independent investigator" contacted me regarding a visit to my vehicle to make a download for Hyundai the next day. He did so, and took a lot of pictures and was with the vehicle for over an hour. I also forwarded him the photos that the repair shop took. Last night I called again, and was given the name of "[xxx]" as the one assigned to my case. To date, I have yet to have any correspondence with this [xxx]. I am very dissatisfied, I fell unsafe, and am completely frustrated with Hyundai right now. The airbags, per their own manual, should have deployed at a head-on 50mph crash. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
