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.

2004 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

I purchased a 2004 Hyundai Elantra in September 2004. I have had little trouble with the vehicle. I drive to work at 4:30 am. One morning, I took a different route. There were barrier poles planted in the road. I did not see them until the very last minute. I swerved to avoid them. At the toll plaza, the police pulled me to the side and told me my lights were off. The switch was on, but there were no headlights. Since then, a number of drivers signaled to me that my lights were off. I was again stopped by the police and told my lights were off. My light switch was in the on position. I took the car to the dealer for service and they replaced the alternator. I still do not feel the low beam lights are bright enough. Any help you could offer would be appreciated. Thank you dianne C. burger.
