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

Apr 242003

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,364 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Hyundai Elantra. The contact was driving approximately 35 mph when the air bag warning light illuminated. The warning light continued to illuminate until the engine was turned off. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for the identical failure five times. The total repairs performed consisted of rerouting the air bag wire harness, tightening the pin connectors and the air bag terminal. Also, the air bag module connector was repaired. The vehicle was repaired for a recall under the NHTSA campaign id number 00V332000 (air bags: Side /window); however, the remedy did not correct the problem. The failure continued to occur after the vehicle was repaired. The vehicle had not been repaired when the complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 7,364. Updated 11/11/10 the ignition cylinder would not turn at times. Updated 11/18/10 the seat track was replaced due to the seat being loose. Updated evoq 12/10/10

The seat track locking system does not always hold. The lock fails throwing the seat backwards on the track when putting the transmission in first and letting the clutch up to go forward. After the 2nd occurrence, , after I adjusted the seat I pushed the control lever down feeling it click in. Performing this extra cautionary movement has not always held the seat in place. The last incident occurred this July, 2002. I will try to have it addressed by the dealer at my next oil change.
