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 had the same problem and this is the 16th time as of 12/06/2011. The problem started off with the car stalling when I came to a stop then, it progressively became worse where the car stalls while driving. The car has had the canister assembly replaced many times and the problem still occurs. I do have copies of all of the work orders. This is a list of the events: 1. 12/01/2007 for stalling. This visit they claimed that it was a "hard start" and replaced the battery. 2. 05/09/2008 for stalling. Replaced sensor assy-air flow 3. 05/29/2008 for stalling. Replaced the purge valve and canister. 4. 06/10/2009 for stalling. They stated the canister and car was fine. 5. 09/17/2009 for stalling. Replaced speedometer assy and battery. 6. 12/16/2009 for stalling. They drove 103 miles and stated there was no problems. 7. 01/25/2010 for stalling and they replaced the canister. 8. 05/10/2010 for stalling. Replaced canister assy. 9. 09/10/2010 for stalling. They stated no problems 10. I picked up my car on 09/11/2010 to have it stall on my way out of the dealership. Replaced canister assy. 11. 11/30/2010 for stalling and failure of the ABS unit. No problem found with stalling. Replaced ABS unit 12. This was another visit where I picked my car up on 12/07 and before the end of the day, it stalled again and again they stated no problem found. 13. 01/18/2011 for stalling. Replaced evap hose. 14. I picked up my car on 01/19/2011 it stalled on the way out of the dealership. They replaced canister assy. 15. 01/25/2011 for stalling and they replaced the fuel pump and sender module. 16. as you can see, I have been in numerous times for the same problem, they want me to pay to fix the canister assy, on this past visit on 12/06/2011. I still have not had the car fixed as I am arguing with Hyundai as to who is responsible for paying for the repair.
