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.

2006 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

I read the structure report about the sun roof exploding and want it on record that starting the past week or so, I hear very loud pops that I think are the sun roof or the structural integrity of the car. The moulding on the right drivers side along the roof edge will not stay locked down either, I keep waiting for the sun roof glass to shatter all over me, it has been extremely hot here but I have never heard this problem before and it is alarming, I travel the interstate alone quite often and worry about this now that I read about this happening to someone else. The dealer is by my work so I think I will drop it off so that it is on their records too if this does explode on me as well. Obviously this is another 2006 issue, if the Elantra I bought in 2000 was like this one, I would have never bought another.
