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.

Shortly after delivery of the vehicle, I noticed a speedometer error of 5-7 mph. I tested this with two different radar guns and brought it to the dealers attention. Dealer verified error and contacted tech line. Tech line said this was normal. This is not normal and no parts were replaced per Hyundai tech line's findings. Problem is ongoing and continuous.

Elantra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60 miles
I purchased a 2007 hundai Elantra in January 2007. My daughter also purchased the same vehicle. We both noticed that when driving the speed limit everything on the road would pass us. I timed myself on a measured mile at 60 mph and discovered I was doing 55 mph. I started researching the internet and discovered it is a common problem. Hundai has replaced some speedometers but apparently it does not correct the problem. It has occurred to me that this would also give you a better mpg indication than you are actually getting. Have you received any other complaints about this and what is thoughts. My dealer had not heard about this problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. The dealer tested the vehicle and confirmed that the speedometer is inaccurate by 5 miles. The test was performed while driving 60 mph. The contact must continuously monitor the speedometer and subtract the mileage accordingly. The contact is aware of the safety risk involved while driving.

The contact filed case # 272638 with the local manufacturer and case # 1062516 with the corporate office. The VIN was unknown. The current mileage is 2,575 and failure mileage was 5.

Speedometer/odometer read higher by 5-8% than actual testing. Hyundai replaced instrument cluster. Vehicle still reads high. Hyundai will not do anymore citing that reading is within specifications.
