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

problem #1

Dec 252009

First time I was parking the car and it just accelerated making the car jump. The next time I was stopping at a stop sign and the car accelerated on its own and I almost ended up in the intersection. This has happen at least 6 or 7 times when I was parking or stopping at a stop sign. I never know when I stop or park the car if it will accelerate on its own. I have come so very close to hitting a vehicle in front of me, sliding into the intersection and/or jumping a parking bumper. I have also had a problem with the windshield wiper washer. I've had it corrected at the dealership a couple of times only to have it stop working within a few days. This problem has existed since I bought the car in February 2006 and needless to say is still not working. The speed on the car is wrong. It shows me going faster than I'm actually going. For example, it shows I'm going 57 mph when I'm actually going 54 mph.
