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.

Elantra

  • 60,000 miles
One of my Elantra's started shaking really bad to the point that I couldn't drive. I brought it into the closest shop. They told me that the alignment was way off spec. They ordered the proper parts and were able to put the front alignment in spec. Then they told me that the bad could not be fixed, they are non-adjustable struts. I then took it to the dealer which has now told me the same thing. The car is 1 years old and cannot be fixed. I contacted Hyundai corporate and they are sending a rep to check out the situation. Upon researching this problem I found that there were other Elantra owners out there with this same problem. My mechanic believes that this has to do with the car not being built to hold even the maximum weight capacity. I am also concerned because I have another of the same car.

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. While driving 60 mph or greater, the rear of the vehicle swayed from left to right. The failure was prevalent when there was extra weight in the vehicle. The dealer stated that the extra weight changed the rear alignment and caused the vehicle to sway. The dealer attempted to align the rear of the vehicle on four different occasions, but was unable to correct the failure. The current mileage is 8,252 and failure mileage was 2,783. The consumer stated the defect is due to unequal camber and toe settings is what the consumer was informed by the Hyundai dealership. Specialty parts company engineers suggested replacing upper control arms that the defect was due to poor suspension. The consumer provided numerous repair invoices and pictures for the vehicle.

Rear camber goes out of factory specification with loads 75 pounds and over causing unstability in the rear end causing the rear of the car to over react when steering the car.

  • Automatic transmission

Alignment on my vehicle (2007 Hyundai Elantra SE) is not adjusted properly, and cannot be adjusted properly. Vehicle is unsafe to drive on the highway. Rear end goes sideways because camber settings are creating oversteer situation.
