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

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.

Elantra Touring

  • 18,000 miles
The first of several sidewall bulges appeared on the tires. Tires (kumho solus 215/45R17) fail frequently with uneven sidewall wear and blowouts. Expensive to repair on tires that should easily last 50K miles. Overall cabin noise is ridiculous. We were sold 17 inch alloy rims as a added "feature" on this car but given the car's performance and frequency of tire failure a 16 inch wheel would have been much safer.
