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.

2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring Owner Comments

Elantra Touring 4-cyl

  • 13,000 miles


Kuhmo solus KH16 P215/45R17-87H sidewall cracking and separation. Started at 13K miles and first complete failure at 15K miles. All 4 are oem tires on a Hyundai Elantra touring and all 4 tires have developed wear and other issues over life of tires. Vehicle not safe to drive due to risk of blowout of tires. Hyundai dealer (from where car was purchased) will not even look at tires and states that I have to find an independent tire dealer that will deal with kumho, even though tires are original to care from their dealership and Hyundai. NHTSA needs to open an investigation into these tires, since other kumho tires have failed in the same way, and numerous complaints are present on these specific tires. Kumho will only direct you to a tire dealer, and no tire dealer wants to inspect the tires that they did not sell (again oem for the car).
