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.

1999 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

Elantra LX 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles


I have had a 1999 Hyundai Elantra LS since last easter and every time I try to put gas into the car, it takes forever to fill it up because the point of entry fills like it is stopped up and would take 25 minutes to fill it up as it will only hold a dollars worth of gas at a slow pace and then you have to wait at least 45 seconds before it will hold another dollars worth. If you go to fast, it will only take about 8 cents worth at a time.

Does anybody know what it would take to fix or repair properly?

My gas tank makes noises when the car is running. It's holding pressure and so I take the cap off and let out the pressures. It sounds like the gas is boiling!
