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.

The auto dimming feature on this vehicle could be a nice feature if it works properly as it would help blinding drivers on the opposite direction while keeping me safe as well. Here is the problem. While traveling on highway 93 from las vegas to phoenix AZ the high bean engaged due to very dark road condition. However the back red light of a vehicle one mile away causes the high bean to disengaged leaving me in the dark again. What is even worse is that a vehicle coming on the other side of the road (not on the same road I am driving on) I mean the other contrary side. Whenever, it sense any light at any distance visible to the naked eye, it will also disengage the high bean. This is totally unnecessary as the transit going on the other direction is not affected due to the large median between the 2 roads. My experience is on the route 93 so far las vegas to phoenix. This can simply be fixed by providing proper illumination while on low bean mode or regular condition at night time as they have done on the 2016 model. On Feb 20, 2016 around 8:30pm while driving on highway 93 from las vegas to phoenix AZ I lost front headlight illumination two times as I was trying to manually switch the low bean to high bean after the high bean had engaged due to the darkness and lack of enough illumination; then it disengaged after sensing either the rear read light of a vehicle one mile in front of me leaving me in the dark again. The other example is when another vehicle one mile away coming on the opposite direction but on the other side of the road and far away from my side due to the large median between road sides. Forcing me to stop and ending off the road and miraculously not going down the cliff. My family and my life is as important as the family of the incoming traffic drivers.

After tire recall and computer update we first noticed a vibration or shudder for the first few miles. Dealer eventually changed 23 separate tires and problem persists. M. stahl of Hyundai states this is a characteristic of low profile tires. Electrical problems began showing up on a rotating basis. Including, park assist not working regularly. Ventilation changing on its own. Blind spot indicators not working. Rear windows not working. Heated seats not heating. Dash display changes on it's own. Folding mirrors not folding as they should. Car went dead once. Zero acceleration twice when merging into traffic. Smart trunk not functioning. Vents blowing ice cold air without ac being on. Most of these have been photographed or videod. Dealer employees have also witnessed most of these. Occurrences have been in all driving conditions from stationary, back roads and highways. I have all repair orders documenting over 60 days of loss of use while car was at the dealer.

2015 Hyundai Genesis on Dec. 23 at 5;30 pm my car died while I was stopped at a traffic light on a five lane state road. All malfunction lights came on. I used my flashers called the police and waited about 10 minutes with cars whizzing around me. Two police cars accompanied by a fire engine arrived blocked all lanes of the road while firemen pushed the car off the road to safety. The car was towed to dealer where it remained for 14 days. Problem with ECU. On July 25, 2015 my Genesis with 5888 miles would not go over 4 mph and then died while on a private road. All malfunction lights were lit. Car towed to dealer where it was for 6 days. Problem with ECU. Even though the car has been repaired twice I am now afraid to drive this car and feel there is a safety defect over which I have no control. The next time it fails I might not be so lucky.
