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.

I own a 2012 Hyundai elantra limited, while driving on a road with bumps the car skipsor sways back and forth, the car feels like you are going to lose control also if you have the cruise control on and you hit bumps the cruise well turn off by itself causing the car to slow down in traffic. Between the two problems, it's a very uneasy feeling when driving this vehicle over bumps, the feeling of losing control and slowing down is a very bad problem. I have complained to the dealer ship and try blamed on the low profile tires that come stock on this vehicle...this can happen at any speed or bump sometimes the smallest of bumps can cause this.

Car gets blowouts, rim damage, or sidewall bubbles when hitting potholes. The combination of the suspension and tire size does not work. The wheels are P215/45R17.

Wandering all over the road. Pulls right most of the time. Currently have 19000miles, 7 alignments, new set of ties. After alignment vehicle will drive straight for 15-20 min. Then starts pulling again. This has been an issue since day 1.

Tire wear is excessive causing tires to wear on inside to point of dangerous. There is no adjustment in alignment to take care of this. Found this to happen after 13,000 alignment. Hyundai forum other people having same problem dealer just seems to think it is owner caused. Need to get new tires or park car!
