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.

While driving the driver's side sun visor dropped down and dangled obstructing my view. It was held on only by the wires to the mirror lamp. It appears the plastic retaining tip on the visor mounting arm broke off (it is separated but still threaded through the mirror lamp wire).I was about to replace the entire visor ($174) as there is no option to replace the individual retaining assembly.however, yesterday the passenger side visor broke in the same manner. Hyundai was contacted, issued me a case number but said there is no recall and I should get with the dealer.
