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.

We were diving at a speed of approximately 50 mph when we struck a telephone pole with the front end of our 2007 Hyundai Elantra. The impact was 3" off center with a direct front end impact. No airbag deployment occurred with a result of physical damage to myself and my friend.

Hyundai Elantra 2007, none of the air bags deployed during a head-on crash with a truck. The front of the car was totally damaged and the driver side rear end was seriously damaged but none of the six air bags deployed. The car was total. Luckily the seatbelt worked and resulted only minor head, neck and shoulder injuries.

Air bag sensor has failed three times. Car was taken to the dealer today and the dealer has ordered new sensor. Air bags on the car are currently not functional.

2007 Hyundai Elantra gls. Air bag light comes on indicating there is some malfunction with air bag deployment. I've had this covered under warranty last year (May 2008) and Hyundai replaced the air bag sensor by the driver's seat. The air bag light is once again on right now. By simply moving the driver's seat back and forth, apparently leads to the failure/malfunction of the air bags. This seems to be a faulty air bag sensor that so often breaks down at the place that it has been installed.

I was traveling at a speed of approximately 55 mph. A car stopped suddenly in front of me, so I slammed on my brakes. The brakes locked up, and my car crashed into the car in front of me. The entire front portion of the car was completely smashed in. The front air bag failed to deploy.
