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.

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 185,000 miles


The car engine turns over but doesn't start. I replaced a cam position sensor but a friend thinks it is the timing belt. The car is an interference engine. Should I replace the timing belt and hope for the best?

Elantra GLS 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

This problem occurred 8 months out of ECM coverage under the factory emissions warranty, though within the 80k miles. The dealership was no help whats so ever. I will try to contact further up for assistance but I don't have much hope of any help from Hyundai. This car has been decent for the price until you start adding up major components like ECMs. this will probably be my last Hyundai. For it to pop ECM.s at $735 plus programming cost every 80k miles, that just not right.
