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

Elantra 4-cyl

When my wife was trying to apply the brake on a 2006 Hyundai Elantra her foot contacted both gas and brake pedals, which resulted in crashing into building in front of a parking space. Personally I had experienced this a couple of times prior to the accident. The gas pedal is slightly higher and close to brake pedal and it appears to be very easy to push both down. I almost drove into the side of an oncoming car entering the road. On my Toyota highlander the brake pedal is higher than the gas pedal, maybe the transition to this other pedal arrangement is part of the issue.
