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.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe driver's side sun visor broken - hangs in front of driver. Internet research shows this is a very, very common problem for all Hyundai models from 2000 - 2010.

We own a 2004 Hyundai sante fe and have been having problems with the sun visors. The drivers side sun visor has broken twice. It no longer has enough friction to hold it up and hangs down in the drivers line of site. The first occurrence was replaced under warranty. The second was out of the warranty period, 70,000 miles, and replacement part is a $170. The drivers visor blocking the drivers view is safety issue. I believe this may be a common problem after it has happened to our vehicle twice. Availability of used parts is scarce due to so many problems and I have found other remarks online about the same problems. These visors should be recalled and replaced by Hyundai.
