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.

Santa Fe

  • Automatic transmission

We have approx. 90,000 miles on our Santa Fe and have had A/C trouble off and on the past year. We have spent over $2000 while the dealership and a privately owned A/C shop replaced various parts. I am awaiting a response from Hyundai as to what they will do to resolve this situation. We have also had the strap on the back seat break, the paint is pealing off at the bottom of the vehicle, the lights/radio/air condition all dim when vehicle stops or hits a bump in the road.
