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.

On 03/02/16 - I was driving on george 400 expressway and I slowed down to take an exit and without any warning my vehicle completely lost power; the steering wheel became stiff and the dashboard lights came on. I had to roll to the shoulder and turn my flashers on. I put the vehicle in neutral and it started back up. I was able to drive to a safe location. This also occurred approximately a year ago while I was driving on a freeway (I-285). I took it to the Hyundai dealership and they could not find anything explanation as to why it lost power. This concerns me because I drive a lot on the freeway and to be driving 55-70 mph and to lose power for no reason is quite frightening. I love my vehicle, but this is very dangerous. It could easily occur when my daughter, a less experienced driver, is driving the vehicle. Please advise what is the cause of this and how can it be rectified? note that the first time this occurred, I had a lot less miles on my vehicle.

I was driving up to a busy intersection where there was a red light. I was just starting to brake when my steering got stiff and my car wasn't following the curve of the street. I looked at the dash and all my lights were on. My car had turned off. I didn't know if I was too low on gas but the gas light wasn't on. I put the car in neutral and turned the ignition, which started right back up. I pulled into the gas station and filled up the tank. I didn't have another issue until today, 9-9-15, when I was driving down a slight hill going about 40 getting ready to get into the turn lane when again the steering got stiff and I looked down and realized all my lights on the dash were on. I had half a tank of gas at the time...both times I was able to put it in neutral to restart it without a problem. Both times have been on busy streets with my children in the car.... this is an issue!! I called the dealership where I bought it last year and since they were close to closing ended up not helping me. I will call them again tomorrow to find out what the heck is going on....

While traveling ~ 45 mph and slowing approaching a curve and stop sign, engine shutdown completely losing power assist for steering and brakes plus engine power. Steered car without power assist and applied un-powered assisted brakes to stop short of stop sign. Car restarted without difficulty. This was a second occurrence.

Azera 6-cyl

  • 28,000 miles
Engine stalls, intermittently when taking foot off accelerator. Twice while driving about 45 mph, several times under 25 mph while slowing down for a turn or stop sign. Loses power steering and power brakes. Normally car acts fine but about once a month (more frequently now) car will have a bad day and stalls several times in one day, (and then acts fine for a few days/weeks before having another bad day). Car starts right back up after stopping vehicle. Very much a safety issue!!! took car to dealer about 4 times before they were able to duplicate it. No service codes. They said it was the only car in the United States reporting this issue (until it also happened (4 times)while they were in the vehicle during my last visit to the dealer. They change crank shaft sensor but 4 days later, (5/27/12) car stalled 5 times in a 15 min. Period.
