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

  • miles
At approximatlely 50-60 mph the car has a engine miss. Car loses power that can last for a second or more. Problem is a intermittent one. I have had it to the dealer at least 5 times. They have replaced the computer and the mass air sensor but the problem still happens. It seems to happen more when the truck is under load ie: Going up a hill, passing.
