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.

  • 16,500 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. While driving 1 mph during snowy conditions, the ABS light illuminated. The vehicle was towed to an impound lot. The vehicle was later towed to an authorized dealership where the contact was informed that the cv joint needed to be replaced. The problem reoccurred and the vehicle was towed back to the dealership where it was at the time of the complaint. The current and failure mileages were approximately 16,500.
