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.

problem #1

Santa Fe

  • 41,000 miles
The left (driver side) quarter panel glass (non opening) dropped out of the car while it was sitting stationary in the driveway. The glass did not break when it dropped out, it simple became detached from the sealant and car body. This quarter of the auto had been involved in an accident (hit while parked in a hospital parking lot.) approximately two years ago. Repair at that time consisted of replacing the left rear light box and some minor bodywork prior to painting. There has been no indication of an issue with the window prior to it's falling out.
