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.

I bought a new cabin air filter to replace the old cabin air filter for 2005 Hyundai Elantra. When I opened the compartment, to my shock, there isn't an air filter found.....updated 12/02/15

I was 1 mile from my home at a red light when my 2005 Elantra accelerated without the gas pedal being touched. I first tried the brakes which did not stop the vehicle from accelerating. I turned the car around and had to ride the brakes until I could get the vehicle home. I put the vehicle in a variety of positions, for example drive, park, and neutral the engine still raced. The vehicle smelled of a burning smell. The vehicle had to be towed to the shop.
