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.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

Jan 312014

Santa Fe

  • 100,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving approximately 65 mph, the contact heard a loud abnormal noise coming from the front of the vehicle. Additionally, the vehicle swayed to the right and the contact had to apply excessive force to the steering wheel. The contact discovered that the coil spring was fractured and exposed, causing the front passenger side tire to blow out. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the front coil springs needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the loud noise persisted. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V435000 (suspension), but the remedy was not yet available. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.
