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.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. The contact noticed that the air bag warning indicator was illuminated on the instrument control panel. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that because the cup holder was located in the center console, a leak from a beverage could enter into the air bag module and cause the module and harness to fail. In the event of a crash, the air bag may not deploy properly. She had the air bag module replaced. Updated 2/2/09 updated 02/04/09.
