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

I noticed some time in 2014 that my driver's side power windows began to falter after it had rained or precipitated in some form. The driver's side power window assembly would get wet when the door was open during normal operating use, such as entering or exiting the 2002 Hyundai Elantra gls. This should not have occurred. The manufacturer should have, in my opinion, produced vehicles which could tolerate a measure of precipitation in the interior of the car through normal use, such as entering and exiting the vehicle. I complained to Hyundai usa about the problem, but they will not fix the problem at no cost to me. I believe that this is a known manufacturing defect. I will seek to know what the NHTSA will do about the problem. I think that the car should be recalled for Hyundai to fix the problem.
