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.

2013 Hyundai Equus Owner Comments

Since I purchased the car I have experienced hesitation at times when I step on the accelerator. The car doesn't respond for 1-2 seconds and I have to hit the accelerator very hard to make it catch and move forward. It is intermittent but when I am trying to get into traffic it is very scary. I have complained numerous times but have received no corrective action and the car continues to hesitate.

I would like this email forwarded to the CEO of Hyundai usa or who ever can help a customer who has purchased an Equus. I refuse to speak with customer service as they are totally useless and don't understand my concerns. My car has been at the keiffer Hyundai shop for now going on 5 months. To this day you have spent over $30,000 on parts and labor on my car and yet to figure out what is going on. My questions is - are you using my car as a test bed if so then why am I paying $575 per month loan on my car when you should be doing that. The service dept. Manager is also very frustrated in how you are handling this. If I got an Equus to drive while you are fixing mine then I would not be complaining - but I have had everything except that - elantra and Santa Fe. I have asked your customer service people to help buy back my car and they refuse. I have asked to exchanged my car and they also refused. What is next"?? when will I get my car back??? how long is too long when it comes to customer not having their car. If I had a chance I report this all over. I bought this car from a Hyundai dealership in lima, oh therefore it was checked out... why did a Hyundai dealership sell me a lemon??"
