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.

My tire pressure indicator was on yesterday morning so I put air in my driver side rear tire, however this morning I notice it need more air again, therefore I took the car to sams auto service and after inspection the gentleman told me the tire cannot be repair because it is worn on the inside trim of the tire and its not due to normal wear and tear, states he has never seen a tire in this condition because the rest of the tire has good thread wear and appears good if your looking from the other side of the tire. Strongly feels its a manufacturing defect, I called the dealer where I purchased my car a year ago and im gonna take it in tommorrow and pray they will replace it at there expense expecially since I have put only 28,000 miles on the tires....

Tire wear uneven, right front passenger worst. Constant severe pull to the right able to change lanes to right without hands on steering wheel. And very minimal pull to left at times while driving on highway (most notable) and city streets. While driving feels like car bottoms out over bumps/holes or on city streets/highways with rough road since purchased in 2012. Cannot adjust alignment on right side, right camber always negative and told no fix for this and cause for excessive wear on tire and pulling to right. Paint chipping underneath driver side door on body. Bottoming out and tire pulling to right first looked at on 11/21/2012.

problem #2

Genesis 4-cyl

The vehicle was hit in the right rear quarter and then in the front, completely demolishing the front body work. Only the passenger side window curtain airbag deployed, likely due to the initial right rear side impact. The sole occupant (driver) was not protected and was injured (cracked pelvis, cracked orbital bone, nose injury) because the steering wheel airbag system failed to deploy. The manufacturer was provided with photographic evidence showing the above, but has declined to address the issue because "we attempted to inspect your vehicle and believed that an inspection would have confirmed the proper operation of the vehicle's airbag system." The car was scrapped already and not available for inspection. Photos provided to the manufacturer (and available to you) demonstrate clearly that the front bumper assembly bodywork was completely ripped off the car, yet the driver airbag did not deploy. That would seem to indicate a catastrophic failure of that intended safety feature. The manufacturer's assertion about confirmation of proper airbag system operation is not credible in view of the facts. Please research the information and make sure that other drivers are not victimized by inadequate safety engineering.

The contact owns a 2012 Hyundai Genesis. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for an unrelated problem when the technician detected that the rear passenger's side wheel rim was severely bent. Also, the rear driver's side rim was slightly damaged. The failure was contributed to the light metal materials used to design the rims. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 14,000.
