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.

While city driving the driver side sun visor swivel bracket broke and will not stay in place. Worse when the visor connector broke it was sudden and blocked visibility. Now the visor will not stay in place and keeps falling into the drivers field of vision without warning. About a month later the same problem occurred on the passenger side visor. After looking at the visor housing the only true fix is to replace the entire visor. After taking it to the local dealership they agree the only fix is to replace both visors which will cost $170 each. This should be a recall as no user error caused the broken visors and unexpectedly blocks driver visibility.

Sun visors have a defective part which brakes at the mount and then falls down into vision area and creates a hazard. The problem is where the sun visor is the rod that mounts into the bracket is molded in plastic that is flanges so it will stay in the bracket. The flange breaks allowing the sun visor to fall and will not hold into position. This happened to me while driving on the freeway at freeway speeds unexpectedly and causes not only a distraction but a dangerous situation that actually can temporarily block the path of view.

Broken driver side visor creating a driving hazard when it kept keeps falling down obstructing the drivers line of sight. Very flimsy plastic and you are unable to easily repair it... I have since removed the visor entirely and it is still a hazard when driving into the sun. Cost to replace is $200+ which is insane for something that should much stronger. Same issue with the 2007 sonata and I suspect the same part/durability applies to the 2007 Elantra since I've heard many of the same issues. Please issue a recall for the visors for the 2007 Hyundai Elantra!

The sunvisor on the driver's side broke off, and then 1 week later the visor on the passenger side broke off as well. The passenger's visor barely gets used and yet it broke at almost the same time as the drivers side. After doing research, it was discovered that the part was defective and was redesigned by Hyundai but it has not been officially recalled despite posing a safety/visibility issue.

At my 30,000 mile maintenance work ($600.+), I was called back to shop to show me "very dangerous" corrosion around rear axle/frame parts. I bought this car new from same dealer and was sold a $800. Warranty rust-proofing application. It was clear that where no coating was applied, rust was there and I was told it would be risky driving the car. The low millage and no history of the car being driven in salt water conditions, I was amazed at its condition.(I grew-up in the North rust-belt) I retired close to the South ocean area but never had a car with such advanced rust. (several cars) the dealer refused to honor the warranty and Hyundai's warranty does not cover it. I think poor quality of metal was used in the manufacturing of this vehicle. It's obvious the dealer is also at fault and refuses to honor his warranty. I guess that is a legal problem that I'm stuck with. The possible safety problem comes under your concern for sub-standard manufacturing.
