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.

2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 192001

Santa Fe 4WD

  • miles


Vehicle hestitates on acceleration, and cuts off. Harness, throttle body, throttle body sensor, compressor, egr gasket, plugs, valves, etc., all replaced. Problem still exists. Manufacturer and dealership can't fix problem. They have had no other complaints of this problem, per steve hickman (man. Rep) and dealership. After replacing harness, steve hickman assured me that the vehicle would be fixed, the vehicle still cuts off and the RPM bounces up and down while the truck is bucking and then it will cut off!! serious safety hazard!!
