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.

Santa Fe 6-cyl

The airbag light is on which was diagnosed by the dealer that I would have to replace the driver seat belt, and computer parts in order to reset the airbag light. The airbag light is always on and eventhough I wear my seat belt the symbol and beeping noise comes on stating I do not have my seatbelt on. The cost to fix this problem is over $500. Also, the driver seat belts have worn away which has damaged my clothing.
