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.

Equus 8-cyl

Since I bought my car, it randomly opens the trunk by itself without pushing any button on the dashboard or on the remote control. One time, I almost drove back into a car passing by, because my rear view was blocked by opened trunk. I am afraid that my trunk may open while I am driving by itself or run into another car because my view was blocked by this trunk. I have four videos of my trunk being opened by itself, but Hyundai's distric parts and service manager is refusing to fix my problem."V=wqudghgozug"V=ew3df_vs954.
