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

Apr 012003

Santa Fe 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,020 miles


Throttle stuck on vehicle in a fast idle position. Control of vehicle was maintained by use of foot brake. Vehicle had 23020 miles and is a gls with all wheel drive, date of manufacture was 13 Jan 01. No injuries, no property damage. Dealer replaced cruise control cable and stated that the cause was that the cable was misrouted. According to dealer the cable should not have been routed through a metal clip at right rear of surge tank/intake manifold. This clip is adjacent to the clip used to secure the gas pedal cable. The replacement cable appears to be shorter than the original cable as it is not long enough to be placed in the metal clip. The replacement cable used was part #96430-26110 and has a yellow label with "TO2" on it.
