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.

2002 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 052003

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


At less than 11,000 miles, my Elantra's front brake rotors had to be turned and machined. New brake pads were also installed. Now at 22,000 the front rotors are warped again and are too thin to machine again. They have to be replaced. We feel these are defected from the manufacturer because of the alloy used in these rotors being poor quality. If a dealership has 40 rotors sets in stock, there must be a heavy demand for these. I am in process of working w/ Hyundai on this issue. This is a huge safety concern.
