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.

I bought my Hyundai around March or April 2015. After about a month I noticed that the ESC was coming on and off. While visiting family in fishers Indiana in August I noticed that not only was the ESC coming but also all the other warning lights I.e. ABS, air bag, parking brake and eps. On August 17 I took my car to the noblesville Hyundai dealer. On the 18th I was told that the problem was a negative component not grounded and was fixed. About 1.5 weeks later the problem returned plus now the low tire pressure warning light was coming on. On the 31st of August I went back to the dealer explaining that the problem had returned. As of September 2 they still have not determined what the problem is. Picked up my car on September 3rd and was told that since they couldn't get the car to act up there was nothing they could do so I took my car. I'll just have to see if and when the problem occurs again then take it straight back to dealer.

I bought my car in Feb 2014, since that the electronic stability control (ESC) indicator has come on several times while driving. When the ESC is on, the other indicators air bag warning light, ABS, parking brake & brake fluid warning light, low tire pressure telltale and electronic power steering (eps) indicator will also take turns to come on for a while and then off for a few seconds then back on again. After I restart, ESC light will stay on and the other lights take turns to on and off. This will last several days and then back to normal. The worst thing happened on June, 2015, after the lights have been on and off the day before, the electronic power steering was lost when I started my car. Air bag warning light, ABS, parking brake & brake fluid warning light and eps were all on. I was totally in shock by what had happened since I basically could not back out from the parking lot with the stiff steering. I restarted several times and could not work out. When I finally got to dealer, the technician turned on the car, everything was normal. They tried to get a code for me but no code showed any malfunction. Since then, I was driving in afraid that this may happen again at any time and I may lose control and cause an accident.
