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.

2003 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 302009


  • 36,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. While driving 5 mph, the front passenger side wheel failed and fractured, which caused the control arm and the bushing to fail. There were no warnings prior to the failures. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they determined that the corrosion and thinning of the steel in the front lower control arms caused the failures. The vehicle is currently being repaired according to NHTSA campaign id number 09V125000 (suspension:front:control arm). The contact feels that the repair will not remedy the failure because the front and left control arms and subframe need to be replaced. The manufacturer stated that they were aware of the issue and were working with the dealer to repair the failures. The failure and current mileages were 36,000.
