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.

The contact owns a 2001 Hyundai Elantra. While driving 15 mph, the driver side sun visor broke and fell on the steering wheel, causing him to pull off the road. The dealer stated that had to purchase the sun visor and bracket to repair the problem. The contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 97,000.

2001 Hyundai Elantra gls -- one month ago (January 2007) the airbag light on the dashboard commenced slowly, dimly appearing then slowly fading out in one continuous cycle of several seconds. The condition repeats as long as the ignition is switched "on." I noticed Hyundai's recall of the 2001 Hyundai Elantra for exactly that problem and took the vehicle to the local dealership for repair. Evidently, the condition is caused by one-or-more faulty airbag sensors. The result, according to the recall information, is that one or more airbags may not deploy when activated. The dealer entered my vehicle's VIN, told me that my vehicle was not covered by the recall and refused to replace the sensors without charge. Because of the exorbitant cost of replacement, please ask Hyundai to include my vehicle in the recall and/or mail me a letter of credit that I can give to the dealer to have this condition repaired. Accordingly, I must continue to drive the vehicle in this condition until I hear from you and/or Hyundai, here concerned. Otherwise, last June, 2006, both sun visor retaining brackets (holding the visor to the roof) cracked about a month apart, rendering the sun visors useless, in that the placement of the visor cannot be controlled...it simply drops and hangs when released from the retainer. My driver's side bracket broke just at the most inopportune moment, when the sun was shining directly into my eyes at a level just above the top of the steering wheel. I feel fortunate to have been on a lightly traveled road at the time, such that I pulled over onto the shoulder for a few minutes until the sun rose a bit higher in the sky. Those brackets should last longer than this; likewise, the airbag sensors should last longer than this. Abl.pco

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,198 miles
The ball joints cracked which caused the front left tire to become detached from the vehicle while driving approximately 70 mph on the freeway. The consumer contacted the manufacturer but they have not done anything about the issue. The vehicle's tcm/ECM software failed which caused the transmission to slip/surge while driving. The vehicle would not go into reverse due to an internal failure. The dealer replaced the A/T assembly and flushed the A/T fluid. The left sunvisor was coming apart. The visor clips broke and as a result they could not hold the visor in a stable position. Seat belt bolt cover broke. The passenger side door lock was hard for the passenger to unlock from the driver's side. The dealer replaced the door latch and actuator assembly. The vehicle's heater took about an hour to effectively warm the vehicle. The dealer determined that the blend door was loose at the actuator.
