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.

2009 Hyundai Genesis Owner Comments

problem #2

Genesis 6-cyl

  • 68,282 miles


Without warning, the brake pedal traveled almost to the floor of the car before stopping the vehicle. The first occasion happened on August 7, 2013, but the problem corrected itself and the brakes seemed fine until October 20, 2013, when my husband and I were vacationing in the mountains of North Carolina, approximately 5 hours from our home. Again, without any warning, the brake pedal went almost to the floor before stopping the vehicle. We made it home safely, but the brake failure was a major safety concern. After seeing information online about a recall of the Genesis related to the brakes, we took the vehicle to the Hyundai dealership in goldsboro, nc, on October 23, and they replaced the brake fluid, which failed to correct the problem with the brakes. They told us the master cylinder needed to be replaced. Based on the history of the problem, we did not agree with that diagnosis and, on October 24, took the Genesis to johnson Hyundai in raleigh, nc, where they determined the problem was caused by a failure of the hydraulic module for the anti-lock brake system. The Hyundai company told us they are currently investigating this very same problem with the 2009 Genesis but the investigation is not far enough along to determine if a recall will be made. Further, that we should have the repairs done (over $2100) and if a recall is made, we would be reimbursed. Johnson Hyundai is trying to help us find a resolution to this issue. The vehicle is only four years old and about 10,000 miles out of warranty; $2100 in a repair bill is a lot of money for us to pay for a brake problem of which Hyundai is already aware....updated 11-12-13 johnson Hyundai and Hyundai corporation replaced the defective ABS module at no charge.
