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.

1996 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Elantra GLS 1.8L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,700 miles


My 1996 Hyundai Elantra GLS makes a rattling noise in the undercarriage and it becomes bothersome. It doesn't sound normal and it is as if there is some metal plate that vibrates rapidly underneath. I've never looked under the car, but I would like to have a suggestion as to what I should look at. The noise only occurs when I am driving, not when I start the car, but when I hit the gas I hear it. It eventually goes away but reappears after I stopped and drove again.
