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

problem #1

Mar 122006

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,000 miles


Car accelerated beyond control to ~90 mph before steering lock and car went into jersey barriers. According to tsb from Hyundai this is an electrical component know issue call a tps(throttle position sensor) for 2001 Hyundai Elantra's with a "1" in the 10th position of the VIN number. The tsb number is 01-36-027. Before we contact Hyundai, I wanted to see if this was on recall or safety check and I was not able to find any info.
