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.

Rear left and center inboard female seat belt buckles are reversed. This prevents use of the center belt when the left outboard seat belt is buckled as the belt covers the inboard center buckle. Need dealer recall to fix problem and have Hyundai recognize their problem.

The rear center seat belt anchor and the left seat belt anchor are reversed. When one passenger fastens their seat belt it covers the anchor point for the other passenger. The only way to connect both is to twist the seat belts across each other. In the event of an accident, the applied forces would not be in line with the seat belt anchor points and would most likely not conform to the intended designs parameters. This also causes the seat belts to go across my grand childrens necks when they are in the back seat in their booster seats which would cause them serious harm in a accident. The Hyundai dealer has looked at the problem and agrees that the anchor points are backwards but they said that it cannot be reversed due to the way the car is designed.
