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.

Air bag light stays on. I was told that this is a safety issue and that the air bag will not work if there is an accident. I have noticed on this site under complaints that there are numerous complaints like this. Also that the 2005 & 2007 have been recalled for this, explain to my why the 2006 models have not been recalled. Hyundai should stand behind their products and if there is a safety issue repair it free of charge.

On this date I experienced the 4th of 5 incidences of unintended acceleration in the 8 years I have owned this car. I was driving in daytona beach approaching a red traffic signal. There was a car stopped in front of me. When I applied the brakes, the car lurched forward and the acceleration revved the engine. I had to turn off the key to stop the car in heavy traffic. I pulled off the road and removed the floor mat as had been suggested by the service technician the last time I had taken it in for this issue. I drove it home safely, but the next morning in a grocery store parking lot when I applied brakes to stop, again the car lurched forward almost hitting a BMW. I again drove it home safely, parked it and called the dealership. I made arrangement to take it in on July 7th to have it looked at again. Out of fear for the safety of myself and others I had the car towed to the dealer. They kept it for 2 days, drove it 240 miles and once again could find no issue. The car is parked in my driveway out of fear of killing someone or damaging property. When I told them I had found multiple instances of this happening with Hyundai online, they claimed to have no knowledge of such a thing. One article stated that the manufacturer fixed this problem in 2012. While I cannot afford to purchase a new car, I am afraid to drive this one, and would not want to sell it to anyone else because of the safety issues I have experienced.
