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.

Elantra 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,300 miles

62,000 miles and I should buy another problem from them???? The car always slipped in reverse only. Yes it is my fault for not taking it in to them during the warranty period. Now that the transmission warranty is over, the transmission died. That is lovely, my car in mint condition worth 4 thousand dollars and 2,600 to fix the transmission. Wish me luck with what ever we do for our next CAR.

problem #3

Oct 062003


  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,351 miles

I have just recently put a 3rd transmission in this car. I have had nothing but problems with the transmission since I pretty much bought this car. I the transmission slipped for years until it finally went completely in May of this year (2010) The car always had difficulty reversing, but the reverse finally went. After I got my transmission replaced, not even 3 weeks after it began slipping again. This time the gears were sticking and the RPM's were going crazy. So, thanks to the warranty from that transmission, I has not even been 3 months and my transmission is on the out again!!!! If you are reading this and you are thinking about buy ANY Hyundai......DON'T!!!!!!

Elantra LX

  • 30,000 miles

Transmission slips, engine revs between gears 2 and 3. If the factory/dealer doesn't address the problem now, I'm going to have to eat the cost of a transmission rebuild after the warranty expires.
