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 2008 Hyundai Elantra. The contact noticed that the passenger side air bag in her vehicle was deactivated. The air bag light indicated that it was not functional. She consulted the dealer and scheduled a service appointment for June 11, 2008. The contact also experienced failures with the transmission. She would have to depress the accelerator pedal with maximum pressure in order for the vehicle to gain speed. The current and failure mileages were approximately 1,700.

problem #1

Apr 112008


  • 170 miles
While driving on I-95 North in Maryland, a motorist cut me off suddenly, when I applied the brakes to slow down, the brakes locked and car swerved to the right, crossed all lanes, and rolled over twice. The air bags did not deploy on driver or passenger side. As a result, I received a fractured sternum.
