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. Notes: So far the 2011 Elantra doesn't have the same volume of transmission problems that 2010 owners are fighting with. It also doesn't have the same pattern of steering and braking complaints that are piling up with the 2013 model year.

We're not saying the 2011 is perfect -- I mean, what were they thinking advertising their MPGs -- but there are worse choices.

After four near accidents I feel it's time to report the following. I would apply the brake and the vehicle would try to stop and at the same time speed up. With no answer from my dealer I have had to find the answer myself. The brake pedal is 4 " wide. The distance to the left side of the accelerator is 3 " and the accelerator is 2" wide. I wear a size 9 shoe which is four and one quarter inches wide. This means that it is possible to apply the brake and also the accelerator at the same time because of the one and a quarter inch possible overlap. It would be very easy to extend the brake arm 2-3 '" to the left, updated 05/18/16
