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.

The fan speed switch for the blower motor inside the vehicle has failed for the second time. It first started a week before christmas in December of 2007, I came out of the store started the car and the blower wouldn't came on for the heater. I had to jiggle the switch for the fan speed control to get the blower to come on, it worked for awhile, but it failed completely. I had no warning at all, the fan speed blower switch just stopped working. I went to the dealer and bought the part for $20.57, it was working fine and then on 7/19/2008 I came out of the store started the car, I engaged the air conditioner and it happened again. Now I am going to have to go back to the dealer and buy this part again. I cannot understand how a simple fan speed control switch can fail in 7 months. It is very annoying to go through this. I hope that Hyundai can help me when I go back to the dealer.
