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

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra with 1500 miles. The front passenger air bag sensor under the passenger seat cushion is not function correctly. The Elantra has a dashboard light between the driver and passenger that lites up when nobody is sitting in the passenger seat and turns off when a passenger 50 pounds or more is sitting in the seat. While someone is sitting in the passenger seat (I.e., my wife-110 pounds) the light goes on and off at random times during a trip. It has already been replaced and still does not work. Freehold of Hyundai of freehold, NJ said to contact their headquarters, there is nothing else they can do.
