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.

2001 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

I have had some electrical problems from the day I purchased the car. Tried to resolve these with Hyundai but they said unless they were currnetly happening when the car was brought in there was nothing they could do about it. The mirror will sometimes move on its own and sometimes the electrical in the car will all go on without the car being on. The malfunciton light lights up here and there also. Also I have a problem with my front end suspention being very shakey and my brakes shake when stopping at higher speeds. I have only had the car a year. One more problem that it has is a major bolt in the front suspention went bad a month after I bought the car and so the dealer fixed that but they said it came off the assembly line that way. The electrical problems started a month after purchase. I bought the car new. I hate my car.
