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.

Elantra Touring

  • 34,000 miles


My car is subject to NHTSA campaign number 14V-310 recall for air bags. I received a recall from Hyundai that advises me to go to to schedule the repair. I have tried 4 times to schedule the repair, but the website does not work. It confirms my VIN, but when I enter my zip code, the site locks up so I never get to the site where I schedule the repair. What good is a recall if Hyundai won't let me schedule the repair? help please.

I was hit from behind by at Super Duty Ford 250 going approx 50 mph. I was stopped and was pushed a car length into a Chevy Silverado who was also stopped, my trunk took most of the damage but the front end was pretty bad too, but my airbags didn't deploy. Not sure of the mph of the impact to the front of the vehicle, but both driver and passenger have neck strain and back strain; along with multiple bruises from the seat belt. I know the airbags have a sensor, but could they be messed up?
