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 4-cyl

Rear brake caliper problem! the rear's only have to be lubricated every 15K miles or annually. A manufacturing problem that should be listed on a recall problem to replaced with a redesign that does not require this lubraction. (please note: People and as myself do not know this, and do not do this. Therefore, the caliper becomes frozen, and the wheel is not braking when it should be. This is a safety hassard. The repair is a new caliper and disk. Conclusion: Other manufactures do not have this problem.
