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.

When experiencing an abrupt stop the passenger seatbelt tightens up and does not loosen up again without unbuckling. Has happened three times and only to the passenger side.

Both front seatbelts are difficult to latch and determine if they are secure. Several times, the drivers seatbelt has failed to be secured properly (come unlatched while the vehicle is in motion) due to short length of stationary portion of seatbelt. The stationary portion is too short, and located in a "hole" between the drivers hip and console. The manufacturer was contacted and they determined that the system was operating "as designed" and told me there was nothing they could do. I advised them that they designed the system that was malfunctioning, and they were failing to "own their problem". Hyundai has refused (in writing) to remedy this safety defect. I encounter no problems with other Hyundai vehicles which I have operated extensively.
