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 have noticed ever since purchasing this vehicle that the manual transmission grinds when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear everytime, I have also read online that thousands of people are reporting the same problem, so why has there not been a recall to address this problem, Hyundai themselves have already admitted that the transmission has a weak syncro that is causing the problem, this will eventually lead to the transmission ceasing and someone possibly being killed, so why no recall, does someone have to die first?

I bought the car at 4400 miles shortly there after the transmission was slipping after repeated trips to the dealer they replaced it. Soon there after the speedometer and odometer stopped working, again, repeated trips to the dealer they then replaced the speed sensor and module for transmission. The next day the trans and speedometer were not working proper again, then the car is back there today, there telling me the trans is fine, and that now the instrument cluster is being replaced, I have been in and out with this car, its from North Dakota and belonged to a keith olson, come to find out that this car may have been in a hit and run accident, with keith olson. Please help anyway you can. Its under warranty till 60,000 and the history since I have had it, is not good, including one time the brakes failed.
