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

When getting gas, the pump always 'clicks off' when tank is 1.5-2 gallons from being full. The only way to ensure a full tank is to continue pumping until gas comes out the top of the filler neck. This usually means overriding as many as 50 pump 'click offs'. on the edmunds chat room I have seen other Santa Fe owners complaining about the same problem so I believe this is a design flaw with the vehicle. By the way, I have yet to find any gas station where this does not occur. Obviously, this method of getting a full tank is not desirable but what's the point of having a 17 gallon gas tank if it will only take 15 gallons of gas? thank you.
