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.

Genesis 6-cyl

  • 85,100 miles
While driving at 65 mph in 4 lane I-95 rush hour traffic, the check engine light and the ESC light both came on and the car would not accelerate. Pressing on the gas pedal had no effect. I turned on flashers and drifted my way through 3 lanes and pulled over and restarted the car. The check engine light came on but not the ESC light. The car ran a bit rough with the check engine light on. The exact same thing happened the next day. I took the car to the dealer, and they replaced the throttle position sensor. Based on owner reports at the Genesis owners web site, this has happened to many owners of 2009 V6 Hyundai Genesis. This is very dangerous, and the car should be recalled to fix this potential deadly situation. If I had been driving in the left lane of a highway, a serious accident with potential deaths could have happened. I had to pay 325 dollars to have this issue fixed since it has not been recalled. Please work with Hyundai to ensure this major safety issue is recalled urgently.
