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.

Noticed a thumping from the rear. Inspected tires, found one inside of tread was worn and had bumps on it. 20K on tires. I'm very disappointed in these general tires but after looking at the tire complaints I now understand, they are poor quality tires. General tire altimax RT195 65R 91 T.

Elantra

  • 5,000 miles
Hyundai is equipping these Elantras with solus tires which are very substandard all weather tires for traction. Tires constantly slide and loose contact with road surface on wet, dry sandy and snow covered pavement, constantly causing the ABS brakes to engage, and causing the vehicle to wander across road surface. It is at its worst in any kind of snow even at speeds of 5 mph. Car almost went off roadway several times during snow while traveling between 5 & 15 mph. Complained to dealer where car purchased and they could not care less!
