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.

We purchased 2 Hyundai Elantras 2006 models in May 2006 as gifts for our daughters. Within 1 week or less, the phone charger in the car was not working on either car. They replaced the fuses in each vehicle and told us that when we charge the phones, they should be plugged in prior to starting the car in order to keep the fuses from "blowing". 13 Oct 2006 - 1 of my daughters blew a fuse and replaced it per their protocol. She plugged in her cell phone to charge and the cranked her car. The fuse blew again. This seems to be a problem when we have 2 brand new 2006 Elantras that are both blowing fuses. You should be able to plug in a simple cell phone charger without the fear of blowing the fuse every time.
