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.

problem #1

Santa Fe 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 134,000 miles


The car will down shift out of 4th to 3 rd gear and will lose power it will not shift back up and will not go into 1 st gear till it is shut off for awhile , I thought it was a trans problem took it to a shop they said it wasn't the transit was a running problem. I have had a few different places look at it and no one can seem to fix it . We have changed the fuel pump and filter , the t.p.s the coil packs wires and new plugs , still can't seem to get it to run any better. if someone can tell me what is causing this please let me know .
